The world is at our doorstep just as it was for Christ when he walked the earth. We not only welcome diversity, but actively make it part of our group through our focus on loving international students at UMass or investing in our vocational center in India, we believe that diversity can only make us better.
Chi Alpha Campus Ministries takes the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) to be centric in all we do. This commitment to global evangelization is reflected in our mission statement: “Our mission is to reconcile student to Christ, equipping them through Holy Spirit-filled communities of prayer, worship, fellowship, discipleship and missions to transform the university the marketplace and the world.”
When we use the word “missions,” we mean the deliberate expansion of the Kingdom of God through reaching the spiritually lost, planting new Kingdom outposts (like Chi Alpha groups), training leaders on the campus and throughout the world to proclaim the message of Jesus Christ, and touching the poor and suffering with the compassion of Christ and inviting them to become His followers.
Chi Alpha holds the veritable potential for world transformation. We challenge and call every student to be involved in cross-cultural missions. Equipping for this challenge and call is an integral part of every Chi Alpha group through strategic discipleship and training.
