Life Groups

 You belong here.


Life Groups are the best part of Chi Alpha! Our weekly Life Groups meet on Tuesday nights at 7pm in the EIU Honors College room 1160 (right inside the front door).

You can always expect some food, coffee, tea, and community. Life Groups are open to anyone skeptical about Jesus, seeking Jesus or even if you were literally born in the church. We have open times of discussing God's Word, prayer, worship, and being on mission together.

Our core value is living is life-on-life, life on mission. We do life together because we believe the Bible teaches us that community is a powerful tool that helps shape us into the image of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. 

Life Groups are the heartbeat of our ministry. If you are an EIU or Lake Land college student looking to get more deeply connected with other students on campus then Life Groups are for you! 

As far as Sunday worship, pastors Mark and Jenn also lead the Fields Church in Charleston. Many EIU and Lake Land students come together every weekend for a time of worship, ministry, fellowship and prayer. For more details on Fields Church, check out

If you have questions about Life Groups, feel free to contact Mark (217) 621-7170 or fill out the form below and we'll get back to you.
