EVERY STUDENT, FROM EVERY NATION, A DISCIPLE MAKER FOR JESUS

About Us

We’re not a frat; we’re a family of Americans and International students who live to know Jesus and make Him Known.  Our Greek name ​Chi (X) Alpha (A) comes from the ​initials of a ​phrase written by the Apostle Paul ​in 2 Cor. 5:20:

“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as ​though God were making ​his appeal through us. ​We implore you on ​Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled ​to God.”

​Translated, Chi Alpha means “Christ’s ​sent ​ones,” which why we exist—to bring the Good News of the gospel to  ​the campus, into the marketplace, and around the world. Whether you’ve been following Jesus your whole life or you’re investigating Christianity, we would love to have you be a part of the Purdue Chi Alpha family!
