Bill F12-__ Senator: Kalyn Scott November 8, 2012 Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship World Missions Summit Conference Whereas, Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship is a student organization whose objective is to allow students of all races, backgrounds, and ethnicities the opportunity to explore their faith. Whereas, students’ can explore their faith through spirit-filled communities of prayer, worship, fellowship discipleship, and mission at McNeese State University. Chi Alpha works closely with other student organizations on campus to promote a spirit of unity among the students at McNeese State University. We have several members of our group who are apart of various organizations on campus. These groups include Up Til Dawn, Speech and Debate, Student Union Board, Colleges Against Cancer, and etc. Our members keep us informed on the upcoming events of those organizations so we can get involved and support their efforts as much as possible. Whereas, Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship does not require dues from its members. Students can give an offering on a voluntary basis if they would like to throughout the semester. Students typically pay their own expenses when we attend regional and national conferences. Whereas, every four years Chi alpha attends a national conference entitled “The World Missions Summit.” Students attending the conference will hear speakers from around the world share about service learning opportunities that exist upon graduation. These speakers will also set up interactive exhibits so students can get a perspective of working in a cross cultural context in the United States and abroad. Majority of the universities in Louisiana will have students represented at this conference. Students will receive pertinent information that would be able an asset to students at McNeese State University. The conference will be held from December 28 – December 30, 2012 in Fort Worth, TX. This conference will have approximately 5,000 college students throughout the United States in attendance.
