About small groups: Our strategy is to work toward the building of a group or community of people who share the ideals of becoming a community of worship, a community of fellowship, a community of discipleship, a community of prayer, and a community of witness. We believe the most fertile atmosphere for people to come to faith and maturity in Christ is warm exposure to a group of people fervently committed to the God of the Bible, to one another, and to the task of evangelizing the campus.
The making of disciples is not something which just happens. It is a very deliberate and specific process which requires strategy, time, and prayer. It is a process by which growing Christians impart
their knowledge and experience in the Lord Jesus to newer Christians, in the context of personal relationships. By this process, each member is thus given the basic knowledge and skills necessary to grow toward maturity in Christ, and is equipped for the work of the ministry. (Ephesians 4:11-16)
We desire to follow the instructions of Paul to Timothy. 'And the things which you have heard from
me in the presence of many witnesses, these entrust to faithful men, who will be a able to teach others also.' (2 Timothy 2:2)
In this way, we perpetuate a continuous development of maturing leaders for the work of Christ here in our campus ministry, then across our state, our nation, through our missions endeavors, and around the world.
Small groups are an essential part of Chi Alpha and the core of its discipleship capabilities. If you would like to become involved in a small group, please contact the staff for more information or get more information at a Chi Alpha meeting (Thursdays at 7pm in the LSC).
