Who We Are

Chi Alpha is a Christian student organization in our tenth year at Rice University. We are committed to helping students be devoted followers of Jesus Christ and to practically demonstrate His love to the campus. We believe faith in God should not merely survive but thrive during your college years!

Every Thursday night we meet to worship God, connect with each other, and listen to what God’s Word says about our lives. Throughout the week small groups meet to hang out, discuss, ask questions, and walk with God together. If you are a college student looking to get more deeply connected with other students in Chi Alpha, then small groups are for you! Click here to fill out an interest form.

Chi Alpha groups are on university campuses all over the world. To find out more, visit the national Chi Alpha website.

What Defines Us

The core values of our community are fellowshipdevotional life, and responsibility.

  • Fellowship: We are made for community! We believe that the greatest transformation occurs when we are living in real community with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. That is why we consider the most important part of Chi Alpha to be our small groups.
  • Devotional Life: Our desire is that every student would have a vibrant, personal relationship with God. We believe that a real devotional life is necessary to maintain a solid relationship with God. Through spending time in the Word, and communicating with God frequently through prayer, we can thrive!
  • Responsibility: What God does in us, He wants to do through us! We believe that every Christian has an outward responsibility and should play a role in global missions, relational evangelism, spiritual mentorship, and justice. In Chi Alpha, we provide students with opportunities to serve on all levels.
