We meet Thursdays in Somsen Auditorium at 7pm. It consists of relevant teaching, fun, food, and music. As a way to help students grow in their relationship with Christ, we also have small group Bible studies that meet at various times and places throughout the week.
WSU CHI ALPHA
WHO WE ARE
Chi Alpha is a nationally appointed Christian campus ministry (not a fraternity or sorority) found on universities throughout the United States and around the world. We are groups of college–aged men and women earnestly following Jesus. We invite everyone to be a part of our ministry, regardless of background. Our large group meetings are informal, infused with music and interaction, and cover topics from relationships to the nature of truth. We create opportunities for students to meet God, each other, and the needs of the community.
MEET OUR STAFF
Looking for a way to get involved? These are teams that focus on the development of specific skills and passions to serve a greater purpose. If you're looking to use skills that you already have or develop new ones, either way you qualify for any of these teams!
Our goal and mission is to reach out to the community on our campus. On Saturday mornings at 10am, we play basketball in the IWC. Outreach Team also does a variety of intramural sports throughout the year. If you are interested in taking common interests from students and using that to reach others at Winona State, then the Outreach Team is for you!
The Media Team does all kinds of things such as videography, photography, social media, and design to create visuals that are used all throughout Chi Alpha and Campus. We will teach you everything you need to know about the technology that we use. We use our gifts, talents and abilities to provide an opportunity for students to meet Jesus Christ in a personal and tangible manner.
Minions help through small acts, without the spotlight. We are God’s hands and feet, setting the stage for a deeper connection to Him. Throughout the week we help with cutting projects, hanging posters on campus and other "crafts", and on Thursday evening we help set up & tear down service. If you don't like being in front but like helping everything run smoothly each week, then the Minion Team is the team for you!
We work closely with the Service Team to bring you service projects and missions trips. This year we are going to South Dakota over spring break. We also work with Tony Gaselle and Tree Top Kids in the Forest Lake area and will be having a short trip coming up.
As the Creative Team, we love all things creative, whether you like being out in front of people performing skits or doing improv. Or if you prefer being more behind the scenes writing scripts, helping create the murder mystery dinner and doing decorations.
The Student Center is a place where students can come and hang out, do homework and get free coffee. We are open Monday through Wednesday 4-10pm. Mondays we provide baked goods to start off your week right. Thursday mornings we also serve free coffee and hot chocolate at the gazebo or SLC Atrium to start student’s days off with a smile.
Do you love working for free? Do you like getting there early and staying there late? Do you like loading and unloading the truck before and after every Chi Alpha service on Thursdays? Do you like turning things off and on?
Each week we pack backpacks full of food for kids that come to school hungry after the weekends. Service team also serves the delicious food after Chi Alpha on Thursdays as well as many other service projects during the year.
We like to connect with others and make new students feel like part of the family. The team helps people get connected in small groups, and other Chi Alpha activities such as retreats and weekend events the moment they walk in the door at Chi Alpha!
