We are a Christian Campus Ministry called Chi (X) Alpha (A) Christian Fellowship. We do have greek letters, but we’re not a fraternity or sorority. We are a passionately-devoted, diverse, missional community of the Spirit—building lifelong followers of Jesus. Our vision for this community is to: Connect. Grow. Send. We reach out to students and connect them to other students in the community and to God. Through our C-Groups (small groups), we help students grow in these connections and become a true disciple. And, finally we hope to send students back into the world as equipped Christians ready to help others make these same connections.

Generation 6:20 Campus Ministry is an organization that believes that the Bible is the divinely-inspired Word of God. We strive to bring unity to the body of Christ; therefore, we are not a denominational organization. We are a group of college students who choose to live our lives sold out to Jesus Christ. It is for this reason that we glorify God in our body, spirit, and soul (1 Corinthians 6:20). Generation 6:20 Campus Ministry not only assists the born-again believer to constantly grow and develop in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, but also promotes the highest level of excellence in every aspect of life (academically, economically, mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually).
