One aspect of Chi Alpha’s cross-cultural mission is the drive to accurately represent the Kingdom of God and the people of God on campus. We embrace a diversity based on humanity’s sacred creation (Acts 17:26) the Church’s diverse ethnic makeup (Rev. 7:9), supernatural oneness (Gal. 3:28), and Jesus-centered unity (John 17:21). We strive to live lives that manifest a Kingdom-ethic witness (Mt. 5:1-15, Luke 4:18-19) and a reconciliation ministry (2 Cor. 5: 16-21, Eph. 2:14-22). We create communities of “every nation, tribe, people and language” who live in unity with each other and work towards love, righteousness, and justice in the world.
What We Do
Chi Alpha is committed to creating initiatives and providing solutions so that every ethnic group can participate in the mission of Christ, taking the“un” out of “unsent”. We do this through:
- Promoting God’s vision for all peoples to reach all peoples
- Coming alongside new minority missionaries through the Minority Mobilization Fund (MMF)
- Encouraging and providing mentors to new minority missionaries from their ethnic background
Chi Alpha is committed to equipping its staff and student leaders to be agents of healing and transformation on their local campuses, to see God’s Kingdom diversity on earth as it is in heaven. We equip leaders by providing:
- Seminars that teach the stages of Kingdom diversity and how to live it out
- Online cohort groups that equip leaders in specific areas of diversity development
- Drivingdiversity.org, a resource website with blog articles, videos, and other materials
Chi Alpha is committed to planting a ministry at every Historically Black Colleges and Universities. HBCUs are some of the most strategic campuses in our the U.S., with over 300,000 students on 106 campuses in 22 states. We do this through:
- Identifying national planting targets for coordinated teams and resources
- Resourcing current Chi Alpha ministries to plant satellite groups at nearby HBCUs
- Sponsoring training events for launching new ministries
- Mobilizing prayer and resource support for current and future planting targets
Chi Alpha’s diversity initiatives are led by Belkis Lehmann, who serves as the Diversity Specialist, and the Diversity Task Force (DTF) a representative group of campus missionaries, pastors, and others who have a passion to see the Kingdom’s diversity in today’s church. They meet annually to identify new initiatives and projects that they work on in smaller work groups throughout the year. In addition to leading the DTF, Belkis travels to local ministries and churches to share the vision of diversity and to provide training to help them work towards the next step in fulfilling the vision on their campus.
