Upcoming Events

Team Night — Saturday, April 9 at 6pm

Several times each semester, Natalie invites all of the current volunteers serving on our worship team and at our tech table, to gather together for fellowship, food and fun. For more details, email Natalie


Celebration Thursday — Thursday, April 14 at 8:15pm in Kay Chapel

We love to celebrate what God is doing in and around us! At the end of the semester, we host a special worship service that includes communion, water baptism, student testimonies and a student sermon (this time, from Jolene Carter). If you're interested in baptism, please head on over to for resources and to sign-up!


Study Abroad Send-Off — Friday, April 15 at 6pm on Main Campus

We want to spend time with you before you leave, whether you're studying abroad in the UK or India, and whether it's a Summer Program or sometime during Fall or Spring. Plus, we'd love to share some helpful thoughts as you prepare to live in a cross-cultural context away from your primary community, socially and spiritually. The cost is $5 for dinner and you'll pay at the door via debit/credit card, but we do need you to RSVP. To do so, email Brittney and let her know you're coming as soon as possible.


Senior Banquet — Thursday, April 21 at 8:30pm in SIS Founder's Room

There will be stories told, tears cried and much laughter. Join us for our annual Senior Banquet where we share a meal and publicly affirm our graduating seniors as well as hear them give parting words to our community. Plus, it's a great chance to dress up and get pictures with your Small Group! There is no cost and no sign-up for non-seniors this year (thank you eBoard!). 


Study Break Worship — Thursday, April 28 at 8:15pm in Kay Chapel

Take a break from studying and join us for one last time of corporate worship before summer! We promise, it's a tradition worth keeping.



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. 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. 



What Are Small Groups?

a time of fellowship & Studying the Bible with one another in an informal setting.
