You’ve crossed the campus, crossed the street, or crossed the room to reach others for Christ at your university. Are you ready to go farther?
REACH is a GA Chi Alpha missions experience with one goal, to reach the world with the love of Jesus Christ. We are passionate about using our words and actions to express the life changing power of Christ’s love.
Do you want to be a part of a missions movement?
Do you want to help share the love of Jesus?
Students in Spain are waiting.
REACHspain: Spain is one of the most prominent and influential countries in Europe. Once known as a predominantly Christian nation with the strong presence and influence of the Catholic Church, today Christianity is in decline in Spain as it is in most of Europe. Only 14% of youth describe themselves as religious and only 1% of the population identify themselves as Evangelical Christian.
The need is tremendous.
MINISTER IN TWO KEY AREAS:
TO UNIVERSITY STUDENTS – We are Chi Alpha and our very heartbeat is reaching our local campuses. It makes sense to go further and help reach campuses in other countries.
You’ll have a unique opportunity to partner with both Youth With a Mission and The Assemblies of God to reach out to several universities in and around Madrid. Both YWAM and the A/G have a vision for establishing Chi Alpha groups on these campuses. You could help break the ground for the ministry to come.
TO YWAM Students Training in Madrid – YWAM operates a training center in Madrid. You’ll not only be missionaries but God can use you to help train missionaries attending this unique school.
