GET TO KNOW US
There is so much fighting for your attention when you enter the university. Whether you’re here for two years or ten, you will leave with a variety of experiences, academic achievements, community, and values. We hope and pray that you will take some time from it all to check out Chi Alpha and hear of the love, hope, and peace to be found in truly knowing and being known by Jesus Christ. Our “Mission” is to be a voice that will communicate this to YOU, in word and deed, before your time here is up!
To reconcile VT students to Christ, and build a strong foundation for a lifelong relationship with Him.
In the Bible, the apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 5:20, "We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us." We implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God." Our movement of campus ministries finds its identity in this passage. We believe that God longs to have each and every person be reconciled to Himself and that the way that re-connection happens is through the representation of his people. Each of us who takes on the identity of “Christian” becomes Christ’s ambassador – or christou apostoloi in Greek, which we shorten to the first letters “Chi” and “Alpha” or XA. Our name is our constant reminder that each of us has a real part to play in this world. We each can carry Him within us to bring Him closer to the people around us
