Derrick and Ashley have been our pastors since 2009. They have two of the cutest (and sometimes craziest) kids, Katelyn and Eli. Derrick loves coffee. Ashley loves crochet. They’re a little old, but still pretty cool!
Shelby is a Stephen F. Austin alumna with a degree in Elementary Education. She is our resident ninja and Derrick’s co-coffee-connoisseur. She’s also our women’s pastor and missions director!
On October 26, 1967, the vision birthed in the hearts of our founders was officially begun. The mission was profoundly simple: to reach the campus of Stephen F. Austin State University with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Since that day, hundreds upon hundreds of students have discovered and deepened relationships with God through the ministry of Chi Alpha. Happy 50th Birthday, SFAXA!
Wow! 45 years of active Chi Alpha ministry at Stephen F. Austin State University!
After countless years of faithful service as a student and then a volunteer, Mrs. Pattie Willmon-Jennings is moving to Tyler, TX with her husband, Dennis. We pray she is doubly blessed for all her contributions to the students of Stephen F. Austin!
The most important thing about a man is what he believes about God.
– A.W. Tozer
Our God-beliefs will ultimately determine everything about us: our personality, our decisions in life, our emotions and more. In Chi Alpha belief is of utmost importance – we want to know not just what we believe, but why we believe. The following statements of belief are not light-hearted sentiments – they are firm foundations of truth upon which we base our lives individually and together.
