Chi Alpha is a movement of college students following Jesus together. We’re here to help you grow in your faith as a student here in the Pacific Northwest. Campus life is full of opportunites and choices, and we think the best place to start is to find a vital Christian community near you.
That's what this page is all about. Click below, and we'll fill you in on what's happening on your campus this year!
You’ll notice we ask “who” we are, not “what”. That’s because Chi Alpha = people. At heart we’re not an organization. We’re a community. Chi Alpha is a network of students on 300 campuses across the United States; we are the Church on campus. Our groups meet every week to worship, enjoy life, and grow together in faith. We take our name from 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.
We would love to have you join us! Bring your enthusiasm and your questions, your faith and your fears, your gifts and your weaknesses. We’d love to be part of your life while you pursue a degree! Our community always has room.
Pacific Northwest Chi Alpha is our network of college ministries in Washington, N. Idaho, Oregon, and Alaska. We are supported by the Assemblies of God, Chi Alpha USA, and many students who have graduated in the past.
We have some gifted campus pastors serving on each college campus. Pictured above are the Chi Alpha staff from around the Pacific Northwest. In addition, we also have a regional leadership team to equip our campus pastors in all aspects of campus ministry... see below!
Our vision is to see students worshipping God and gathering on every campus. If you didn't see your college or university listed above, here are some other options:
