Who We Are

KXA is a group for everyone! We are family, on mission together, with Jesus. Together we are actively learning the ways and truths of Jesus. We are committed to helping each other move from unbelief to belief in every area of life. Our histories are complex and unique, filled with victories, defeats, and all the stuff in between. Come and do life with us and Jesus!

Our Mission

Our mission is to reconcile students to Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20). We want you to be a part of that!

Our Organization & Beliefs

Chi Alpha is a national and global network of campus ministries. You can learn more about our leadership, beliefs, and values at: http://www.chialpha.com

University Affiliation

Although this organization has members who are Kent State University students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.

CORE groups

Core groups are small groups of guys or girls who meet weekly for worship, Bible study, and generally are best friends. Being in a CORE group is the primary way we experience and do all that God has called us to at Kent State! Fill out the contact form for more information how to join a core group.

The Weekly Service

One of the best ways to experience Chi Alpha is to be a part of our weekly service on Thursday nights. Our service is located in room 104 of the College of Architecture and Environmental Design (CAED) next to Starbucks. The party starts at 8pm and generally finishes up around 9pm. We normally have something planned for afterwards, too!

Find a Church

The body of Christ is much bigger than Chi Alpha! We believe that it’s important for all students to experience and contribute to a Sunday morning experience at a nearby church. Building this weekly rhythm into your life now will help establish a great habit that will benefit you well beyond this season. Below is a list of churches (within 20 miles) that we recommend. Try a bunch out. Ask Jesus where he wants you to faithfully attend this year.
