“The university is a clear-cut fulcrum with which to move the world. More potently than by any other means, change the university and you change the world” – Chales Malik, former President of the UN General Assembly and Security Council
Our college campuses are the last significant point where our future leaders of education, politics, business, medicine and science have their worldview, values and beliefs shaped. In Southern New England we have the highest number of colleges and students per head of population in the United States and this is the mission field of Southern New England Chi Alpha.
Our mission is to reconcile students to Christ, equipping them through spirit-filled communities of prayer, worship, fellowship, discipleship, and mission to transform the university, the marketplace and the world. It is best summed up in how Paul describes our lives in 2nd Corinthians:
“And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 2 Corinthians 5:18-20

We think of Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians when he calls us ‘Christ’s Ambassadors’ (2 Corinthians 5:17) and we take the name XA to represent the first letter of the English transliteration – Chi Alpha.
We are a Spirit-Empowered, diverse community of believers on university campuses, declaring in word and lifestyle our faith in Jesus Christ, equipped to fulfill our purpose in God’s global plan.
We reconcile students to Christ, equipping them through Spirit-Filled communities of prayer, worship, fellowship, discipleship and mission to transform the university, the marketplace, and the world.
We seek to introduce fellow collegians to an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ. We plan to do this through:
Prayer… Communication with God.
Worship… Expressions of thanks through word, music, and service.
Fellowship… Community of students developing quality relationships.
Discipleship… Learning about Jesus and following His example.
Mission… Living a life that reflects our relationship with God in what we say and do.
Our core values represent Chi Alpha Campus Ministries’ most deeply held beliefs. They serve to guide our decisions, leadership practices, and community life.
We’re on approximately 300 campuses across the nation but we’re also a worldwide movement.

We outwork our vision, mission and values on a daily basis! That means a typical Chi Alpha would do the following:
- There will be a weekly worship service with preaching, song, testimony and fellowship.
- There will be weekly bible studies (these have a variety of names) that are led by students and staff.
- There were will be weekly one on one discipleship meetings – the heartbeat of Chi Alpha. There will be weekly outreach on campus to invite others into the community.
- There will also be baptisms, retreats and yearly mission trips around the world.
