Following Jesus on a Secular Campus

Jon Mathews on staff with Chi Alpha at NC State. His wife, Molly, just finished the Chi Alpha internship in May. Jon is the Outreach Pastor at NC State Chi Alpha.


I got involved with Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship my freshman year through a chance meeting with a friend of a sibling of my random roommate. Some say that it was a random coincidence, but I say that it was God-ordained.

Chi Alpha helped me not to step away from God when entering a secular university where many students are more worried about grades or partying than their walk with the Lord.

Chi Alpha taught me about spending intentional time with God, serving, the importance of missions, and what true community looks like - a community that focuses on Jesus.

I give to Chi Alpha because of what I have seen God do through Chi Alpha during my four years in college, and in hundreds of other students on NC State’s campus.


Chi Alpha is reaching students with the love of Jesus at NC State. 7 out of 10 students who grew up in church will not be followers of Jesus by the time they finish college. We want to change that.

The average level of Biblical literacy in students is declining. Yet so many are hungry for truth but don't even know where to start. There is an enormous opportunity to impact so many for Christ on campus. So many students with so many different perspectives are all in one place.

Students are the most strategic mission field on the planet. Invest in a student and you invest in the world. Would you consider partnering with us in both this summer? Help us raise $5,000 to reach the 5,000 new students at NC State.

Make a strategic investment for a strategic time.
