About Us

Helping you find friends, follow Jesus, and change the world

Normal Chi Alpha

We are a group of students at Illinois State, Illinois Wesleyan, and Heartland dedicated to following Jesus together, discipling one another, and making lifelong friends.

We are grounded in three anchors:
Real devotional life. Real community. Real responsibility.
Helping students find real community.
Relationships can make or break your college experience. We help you connect with other students interested in following Jesus. We believe that the greatest transformation occurs when we are living in real community with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Some of the friends you make here you'll carry with you the rest of your life.

DON'T DO COLLEGE ALONE. REAL COMMUNITY MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE!

Helping students take real responsibility.
Jesus gives life and purpose. Our lives are about Him and His provision. Now we have the responsibility to take this good news to those around us. As we do this together we believe we will make an unforgettable impact on our campus.

DON'T HOLD BACK. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY!
Students following Jesus for life.
Jesus is a person to be known, not an event to attend.
Following Jesus is about a relationship, not an event or set of rules.

We're here to help students from all walks of life and backgrounds experience what it's like to follow Jesus and make disciples together.

We believe that a REAL DEVOTIONAL LIFE is necessary to maintain a solid relationship with God. Through spending quality time in the bible and communicating with Him we can experience God and the life we are called to live.

LEARN THE JOY OF FOLLOWING JESUS IN EVERY AREA OF LIFE, NOT JUST ON SUNDAY.
