8/20 ~ SUNDAY EVENING ~ WELCOME DINNER:
6 PM at the Franciscan Center Park Pavilion – This is about 1 mile west of Bradley’s campus (908 Sterling, West Peoria IL). Come find out what Chi Alpha is about, meet new students, and of course: plenty of good food! Contact Mercy or Richy with any questions.
Come join us every week as we pursue Jesus at our Monday Night Prayer meeting. This is our core large-group prayer meeting that we describe as “the engine” of our ministry. We meet on the main floor of the Chi Alpha ministry house (1309 W. Main Street) across from Bradley’s campus.
We also have daily prayer meetings in the upstairs prayer room at the Chi Alpha house.
Come join us for church every Sunday morning at 10:00 am at the Gateway Building which is downtown by the river (200 Northeast Water St., Peoria).
Hilltop Campus Church was established in 2008 to serve students’ need for a home church and to provide a place for alumni to continue to invest in Chi Alpha students.
Reconciling Students to Christ: Transforming the University, the Marketplace and the World!
2 Corinthians 5:20 says, “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ...“ Chi Alpha exists to reach the strategic mission field of the university. As a missions arm of the Assemblies of God, we are committed to the fulfillment of Christ’s Great Commission on campus, thereby impacting the marketplace and the world.
We are a national organization of students in higher education who unite to express the person and claims of Jesus Christ on campus communities and call others into relationship with Him.
Chi Alpha in Peoria, Illinois is a campus ministry that focuses on worship, prayer, discipleship, fellowship and evangelism/missions. Our heart is to make a “home away from home“ for the Internationals on the Peoria campuses in order to show Christ to them. We are Christ’s ambassadors and our ministry’s motto is, “Reconciling Students to Christ: Transforming the University, the Marketplace and the World“. We desire to reach the students for Jesus and encourage Americans and Internationals to come alongside us to be a light to the world!
