A CASE FOR SUPPORT
Planting ministry centers on every
major campus in the state of Oregon
MOVE-IN TO MISSION
The Oregon Ministry Network is passionate about reaching the young in Oregon for the gospel. A time of spiritual peril and opportunity comes when teens moves to college and begin their adult life. This can be spiritually dangerous for our Christian students, but also an opportunity for spiritual empowerment and missional mobilization.
Chi Alpha is the Assembly of God’s mission arm to the college campus. On move-in day for a University student, we want to welcome them with the hospitality of the gospel and ingraft them into a missional Christian community on campus. It is our passion to reach lost college students for the gospel, raise up Christian students for ministry, and send them equipped and empowered to live out Christ’s calling in our Oregon communities and throughout the world. We believe that through reaching the college campus, we can raise up a new generation in Oregon that will advance the cause of Christ.
A MILLION FOR A MILLION
Chi Alpha wants to have a long term, Gospel centered mission on every campus in our state. Part of our plan to accomplish this is through the establishing of ministry centers near seven strategic campuses in our state. There are roughly 1 million people in Oregon under the age of 21. We are asking you to help us raise $1 for each of these young people to invest in our ministry infrastructure to have a long lasting missions to reach this generation and to reach the college students in Oregon for generations to come. This money would go to the purchasing of a new ministry center in Corvallis, as well as putting Chi Alpha in the financial position to purchase more ministry centers as we expand to more campuses throughout the state of Oregon.

What does this mean?
The state of Oregon is drifting away from Jesus. This means Oregon’s children, teens, and college students are being raised in an increasingly secular culture where exposure to Christ is increasingly less normative.
Through these ministry centers, Chi Alpha will raise up young adults that will contend for Christ in our Oregon communities. We will raise up foreign missionaries to send to the ends of the Earth to proclaim the gospel message, and we will empower and send pioneering Chi Alpha teams to expand Christ’s mission to other university campuses to works with our Network churches to build a new foundation in the culture of our state.
But we can’t wait each year, each day, as our state drifts further and further from Christ. Please join us to change this “now generation”. Help us empower and reach this generation for Christ to combat the spiritual drift in our state. Help us accelerate Christ’s mission in the hearts of Oregon’s young people. Join us as we Accelerate the Now.
