Different College Ministries in the U.S. - Chi Alpha

Those of us who do College Ministry are always interested in who is doing what and where. Over the next weeks I hope to be able to post some facts and figures about different ministries. I would be grateful for any information any of you might provide. I don't plan to editorialize....just provide the facts.


Chi Alpha is the College Ministry sponsored by the Assemblies of God. It started in 1953 at what was then Southwest Missouri State University in Springfield and is now Missouri State University. Their name derives from 2 Corinthians 5:20, "We are therefore Christ's ambassadors...". Their website is www.chialpha.com. Recently in announcing a new leader, they reported the following basic figures.

312 Groups

765 Affiliated Staff

28,000 students involved

  1. The only thing I would add is that the flagship Chi Alpha groups are at Western Washington University, at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette, at the University of Virginia, and at Sam Houston State University. There are some other really large ministries (North Dakota State University and the University of Central Arkansas, for example), but the ones I mentioned first seem to be widely regarded as our leaders.
