Our Mission

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 world.

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 are college-aged men and women earnestly following Jesus.

Meet With Us

We would absolutely love a chance to meet up and talk with you. We'll even buy the coffee! If you are interested in what Chi Alpha is and what we are doing, or if you just want to meet a few Christian friends, talk to us. We meet as a whole group on Tuesdays at 6pm in Room 100 of the Moore Building. We also have small groups that meet on Thursdays in Noel Studio. The Men's Connect Group is at 4:30pm; the Women's Connect Group is at 5:30.

The easiest way for you to get a hold of us is either by filling out the below contact form, or by adding us on Facebook.

You’ve Already Got a Home Church

EKU's Chi Alpha is strongly supported by Real Life Community Church. They are a growing community of believers that are focused on growing the Kingdom of God and 'Equipping People to be Real Followers of Jesus'.

The church is located a quarter mile north of campus and is open for services and other events multiple times a week. Moving to a new city is a bit easier when you have a church already.

How to Get Involved

It's always intimidating going to a new school and trying to meet people. Christian community is such an easy thing to slip into though.

Chi Alpha meets multiple times a week and we are always eager to add to our group. Fill out a contact form, follow us on Facebook, and grab a chair at one of gatherings. We're excited to meet you.
