Meet the Directors
Chantz and Alyssa both grew up in the church. Alyssa was in Canada until she moved to Minot at the age of 16. Chantz started attending Journey Church at the age of six years old. They met at church and both attended Chi Alpha in college where they met and fell in love. After getting their bachelor’s degrees, Chantz in Music and Alyssa in Special Education, they both felt the call to ministry and left Minot to attend the Campus Missionary Internship Training program in Fargo, ND.
While living in Fargo, they served as interns at Minnesota State University - Moorhead. While in Fargo both Chantz and Alyssa felt a nudge to go to Iowa and pioneer a new Chi Alpha Fellowship. They served as directors of Chi Alpha at Upper Iowa University, and Alyssa was also the Children’s Pastor for two years at Crosspoint Church - Waverly.
On a visit to Minot, both Chantz and Alyssa felt the call to come back and be the Chi Alpha directors at Minot State University. They currently serve there as missionaries to the campus. Their heart is to see every student at Minot State have an opportunity to follow Christ and transforming the university, the marketplace, and the world
Chantz and Alyssa are proud parents of Zechariah, Jedidiah, and Jaella. They enjoy riding horses, fishing, attending rodeos where Chantz announces, and serving as volunteers at Journey Church.
Chi Alpha is a Spirit-Empowered, diverse community of believers on the university campus, declaring in word and lifestyle their faith in Jesus Christ, equipped to fulfill their purpose in God's global plan for the university, marketplace and the world.
The heart of Chi Alpha is to see every student at Minot State have an opportunity to follow Christ. We do this through a community that engages in prayer, worship, fellowship, discipleship, and mission.
Chi Alpha is for all students at Minot State University and any young adults in the area between 18-24.
We meet at Journey church for large group on Tuesday nights at 7PM during the school year and small groups meet in apartments around campus.
You can expect to be greeted as you come in and welcomed into a worship service. We start with a few songs, prayer, and hear a message from the Bible. After ending the service with a time of prayer and reflection, we wrap it up with hanging out, eating food, and making friends.
You can expect to be welcomed into a living room setting where we share life together, read the word, and discuss what God is saying through His Word. You can also expect to find friends who will always be there for you.
