FAQ: About Chi Alpha UNT / TWU
Is Chi Alpha a Fraternity or Sorority?
We are not a fraternity or sorority and require no dues for membership. In fact, all you really need to do to join Chi Alpha is start coming. We are a co-ed campus ministry. Our Greek letters refer to 2 Corinthians 5:20 when the Apostle Paul declares that "We are CHRIST'S (Chi) AMBASSADORS (Alpha)."
You might see us use XA as an abbreviation. A better way to think of Chi Alpha is as a group of like-minded students who desire to demonstrate the love of God to their campus.
What denomination is Chi Alpha?
We are part of the Assemblies of God network of ministries, but welcome students from all religious and non-religious backgrounds to be part of our community. Our services and life groups have students from all types of backgrounds and beliefs. The journey to know and love Jesus is at our core and we believe that as we unite together for the sake of Christ, we will always accomplish more.
Are the UNT AND twu groups together or separate?
Actually, since these two universities are less than three miles apart, we are able to bring students from both schools together. You might find that a particular life group might have students from mostly one college or the other, but for the most part, students are interconnected. We host just one weekly service for students from both UNT and TWU to attend (Mondays at 8:00). We meet at a church just off I-35E and McCormick (EaglePointe), so it's convenient for students from both universities.
Why should I join a life group?
The most important thing we can do as Christians is to find friends who will unite with us around a common purpose of knowing and loving God. It's more than just a Bible study; Life Groups are our way of creating environments where students can do life with people. In a Life Group, we find authenticity, love, and friends who share a common journey.
