Appalachian Network Chi Alpha Ministries

Chi Alpha is a network of Christian ministries reaching college and university campuses across the United States. Each chapter looks 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 the Appalachian Ministry Network we are pleased to endorse three Chi Alpha chapters on the campuses of Marshall University, Radford University, and Virginia Tech. Essentially, Chi Alpha is one of the most effective missions efforts of our times. Considering the confrontations of faith the average student experiences as well as the vast number of international students the ministry reaches, Chi Alpha is virtually bringing the message of Christ to the world without leaving the borders of the nation.
