Leaving a Legacy

During my research and interviews for writing Growing a Student Movement, The Development of Chi Alpha Campus Ministries, I discovered more accounts of the far-reaching impact of Chi Alpha. My desire is to continue to update, research, preserve, and expand this incredible story that stretches deep and wide.

 

Let me hear from you if you were involved in Chi Alpha from 1953 . . . (and in the present) as a student, alumnus, campus minister or missionary, chaplain, district or area leader, college or university faculty or staff, parents or grandparents of Chi Alpha students, church staff member, senior pastor, donor, or friend. You are part of the history of this great ministry.

 

Colleagues, alumnus and friends of Chi Alpha:
I challenge all local campus leaders to record the Chi Alpha story of your campus. You have a story to tell to future generations. Designate a person(s) each academic year to be the historian who compiles a written history of your Chi Alpha. Include names of students and staff involved, events and dates, stories and testimonies, digital and printed pieces, and photographs.
