A community-centered campus ministry at Illinois State University.

Join other christian students on your campus who are seeking Jesus.

Friendship is a valuable part of any season in life, but especially during college. Your time at Illinois State University is where you figure out who you want to be and what you want to do. It's critical that you have a community of believers who will challenge and encourage you as you take this next step in your life. Chi Alpha Normal offers weekly small groups called "core groups", prayer gatherings, formal teachings, and, of course, fun events.

CAMPUS MINISTRY

YOUR
FOREVER FAMILY

Chi Alpha Normal is more than just a campus ministry. We are your forever family during and after your time at Illinois State University. College ministry is about more than just small groups and services, it's about doing life together. Embedded into the DNA of Chi Alpha Normal is recurring weekly rhythms for your core group. This could be working out at the Student Fitness Center together, grabbing lunch every Tuesday in the Bone Student Center, or playing frisbee on The Quad. There are an infinite amount of things you can do with your core group; And that's the thing, its YOUR group. At Chi Alpha Normal, you aren't just another student, you are part of a true community.

CAMPUS MINISTRY

REAL DISCIPLESHIP AT ISU

ISU

Our college ministry focuses on guiding you through discovering who Jesus is, how much He loves you, and how much He wants the world to know about His love! Active participation in discipleship is essential for real transformation and a deeper understanding of the gospel. Every student who comes to Chi Alpha Normal is assigned two leaders. These leaders are students who actively and daily pursue Jesus and His Word. Their main mission is to help you grow deeper with God and love your stay at Illinois State University. Not only will you have weekly core group gatherings, around 5 - 10 people, you will also have one on one moments with one of your leaders. Core groups are a great place to ask questions, share gospel experiences from your week, and get to know your forever family more. One-on-one time with your leader is a great opportunity to talk through things you struggle with believing, how to live a life that honors Jesus, and how to dive deeper into the Bible.
