WHO WE ARE
Following Jesus and bringing others with us.
Roman & Sarah have been serving God and the Church together since before they married in 2010. They both grew up in Camilla, GA where they met and began serving together as youth leaders and then worship leaders at their home church. Roman was a forensic scientist for 3 years before joining the Chi Alpha staff at CSU. Sarah runs her own bookkeeping business and now also works with Chi Alpha.
Jackson is the cuter one in the middle, he’s four. He loves visiting campus and hanging out with the students. But not quite as much as he loves hot wheels and construction vehicles.
In short, Chi Alpha is a faith-based student organization located on more than 320 college and university campuses throughout the U.S. and around the globe. We focus on introducing students to Christ and living in community together as we grow closer to Him.
CSU Chi Alpha students meet throughout the week and across the campus in small groups for a discussion based Bible study, coming together for a weekly large group service every Wednesday night. Roman co-leads one of these Bible studies in addition to leading the Wednesday night worship team. He loves spending one-on-one time with the students as they walk through and strengthen their faith together. Sarah is Chi Alpha's Event Coordinator which means she gets to come along side the staff team to plan the ministry's larger events (like their annual Burger Bash) and training conferences (like the new student-leader training). She loves using her gifting to plan and organize events that directly impact the students' lives.
In 2 Corinthians 5:20, Paul says "We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God." This scripture verse is where we get our name: translating "Christ's Ambassadors" to Greek is christou apostoloi, which we shorten to the first letters, Chi and Alpha, or XA.
