Chi Alpha is a student ministry on the UofA campus. Our Greek name comes from 2 Corinthians 5:20, where Paul calls us “Christou Apolostoi,” or Christ’s Ambassadors.
Chi Alpha is part of a national organization. There are over 300 XA groups in the USA and around the world. Our motto is ‘Reconciling students to Christ, transforming the university, the marketplace, and the world.’
Chi Alpha’s covering is the Assemblies of God. We believe in having accountability, covering, and an agreement of beliefs. However, our group welcomes and is made of students from all backgrounds and denominations.
Directors – Caleb and Oneida Christensen
Caleb and Oneida are Wildcat Alumni! Caleb has a BS in Psychology with a minor in Religious Studies and Oneida has her BA in History and Classical Civilizations. They met in Chi Alpha and their heart for God and the UofA campus brought them together. They have been married for 5 years and have 2 really cute kids, Faith (4) and Jovie (2.5).
Caleb loves to teach, serve people and mentor men in their walk with Christ. Some of his favorite things are soccer, sushi, and learning how to build and fix things.
Oneida loves to mentor women in their walk with Christ and mentor people as they grow in leadership. Some of her favorite things are kettle-cooked potato chips, reading anything and everything, and knitting.
