Our Story

Who we are

We’re Chi Alpha and we’re on university campuses all over the world. We’re a network of Christian ministries that look a little bit different on every campus – but here’s what you’re always sure to find: college-age men and women who are at once wrestling to become who they are (through school or work or life experience), and to connect with God. You’ll probably find people who are in all kinds of stages of both pursuits: self-discovery and God-discovery.

In Chi Alpha we want to help you connect with the God, the students and the opportunities that will make you successful in both areas. We are all growing on our journey together and we have a lot of fun along the way. Chi Alpha students on all of our campuses use the word “family” to describe how they view their group and their relationships in Chi Alpha.

Come be a part of our family and our movement in Georgia. You can find more informations on our groups under the “CAMPUSES” tab on the menu.

Our name

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.
