Chi Alpha (XA)

Chi Alpha Campus Ministry is a movement of students at ISU and around the world. We believe that Jesus is God, that He died for our sins, rose from the grave, that we could have eternal life, and that our lives can mean something more through Him. This all comes from and through His grace that is unmerited and cannot be repaid, however, we now live our lives through Jesus and for Jesus, believing that He is the only source of true life. We believe that life and faith are better together in community and that our lives can make a greater impact as we live authentically for Him with one another, living life on mission!

We believe good friends and good community are important. We love to hang out, road trip, have adventures together, and live life in authentic ways. Our gatherings include sharing from the Bible, worship, Bible studies, retreats, mission trips, and so much more! Get to know more about our national movement, visit chialpha.com

We are passionate about:

  • Loving God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength
  • Living life together, having best friends, and making memories together
  • Changing the world around us
  • Discovering our identity
  • Having crazy joy, fun, and adventure!

Do you have a student in your life who is coming to Idaho State? Congratulations! ISU is an incredible place to study and live, and Chi Alpha is a great part of the community here. We have all heard and seen the stories of some things that happen on today’s universities, and anyone who wants can certainly find anything – good or bad – that they are looking for. But at the same time, for a Christian student, the secular university can actually be the most healthy place to learn to make their faith their own.

Chi Alpha is a healthy community of students who love Jesus. Surrounded by such an encouraging community of friends, students can confidently be a part of everything on campus, learning to live and share their faith as they work towards their degree. God is doing something really special here in Chi Alpha at ISU, and we are excited for your student to be a part!



Wednesdays @ 7:00pm on the Quad Lawn

Our weekly large group meeting is called Fusion. Fusion is a time where the Chi Alpha community comes together for a night to hang out, musical worship, prayer, and the chance to hear an encouraging message from the Bible. Chi Alpha loves to celebrate Jesus, and we’d love to celebrate with you! 


We love to live life together, and that is what Cell Group is about. Hang out together, make memories and have an adventure. Cell Groups meet once a week to discuss life, spirituality, the Bible, and to pray together. They usually meet on or near campus for around 90 minutes. Make one of these groups a priority!
