About Us

Thank you for your interest in Chi Alpha at SIUC, an International & American ministry!
Reconciling Students to Christ: Transforming the University, the Marketplace and the World

2 Corinthians 5:20 says, "Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ..." Chi Alpha exists to reach the strategic mission field of the university. As a missions arm of the Assemblies of God, we are committed to the fulfillment of Christ’s Great Commission on campus, thereby impacting the marketplace and the world. We are a national organization of students in higher education who unite to express the person and claims of Jesus Christ on campus communities and call others into relationship with Him.

Chi Alpha at SIUC is an International & American ministry that focuses on worship, prayer, discipleship, fellowship and evangelism/missions. Our heart is to make a “home away from home” for the Internationals on the Southern Illinois University campus in order to show Christ to them. We are Christ’s ambassadors and our ministry’s motto is, “To Know Christ and To Make Him Known.” We desire to reach the nations for Jesus and encourage Americans with a heart for Internationals to come alongside us to be a light to the world!
