STAFF

Pete and Amy Bullette
Director

Pete and Amy graduated from Southern Illinois University where they were both involved with Chi Alpha. After graduation, Pete and Amy got married and went to St. Louis where Pete worked as a CPA for KPMG and Amy worked as a registered dietitian in a local Health Care Clinic. After a year in St. Louis, God called them into Chi Alpha, so they quit their jobs and moved across the nation to train for ministry. They spent a year working with Chi Alpha at Georgetown University and then in 2000, came to Charlottesville to start Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship at the University of Virginia! Pete and Amy are passionate about Jesus and helping students grow deeper in their walk with Christ! They have three wonderful children, Ian, Nevaeh, and Jeremiah!

Josh and Katie met while students in Chi Alpha at UVa. They graduated ('07 and '08 respectively) and were in the inaugural class of CMIT's at UVA. Josh & Katie are products of what God can do through Chi Alpha and are blessed to serve in this ministry encouraging others to become anchored in Christ. They also have three children: Emma, Levi, and Judah. 

Blair Brake

Blair graduated from the University of Virginia in 2016 with a degree in Middle Eastern Studies.

Sensing that God had more in store for her in Charlottesville, she decided to join Chi Alpha staff. Along with spending time with Jesus, Blair’s passions include studying Farsi, playing the guitar, telling jokes, and hanging out with friends!

Sarah Moss Fletcher

The child of alumni, Sarah was expecting the beauty and rigor of UVA. She was not expecting a Chi Alpha party on move-in day, or to be hooked! She committed her life to Christ during her first year at the University which set her on a trajectory culminating with a B.A. in Christianity and a commitment to work with Chi Alpha. Since August 2011, she has been laboring alongside other staff to disciple students for Christ. If she's not at Chi Alpha, you can probably find her reading in a park, writing poetry, or road tripping with a friend.

Rigo and Abigail Herrera

Rigo graduated from Louisiana State University with a degree in mass communication in 2012. Originally from the country of Honduras, Rigo has lived most of his days in the New Orleans area. He completed a Chi Alpha internship at the University of Central Arkansas, and has served on staff with Chi Alpha since then. He has a passion for the visual arts, music, soccer, college football, and Nacho Libre. Abigail, originally from Louisiana, graduated with a degree in history from LSU. She completed her XA internship at U.Va. and currently serves on staff along with Rigo. Abigail enjoys hiking, woodworking, cajun food, and crafty DIY projects.  

Jenny Shin

Jenny graduated from the University of Virginia in 2016 with a degree in Public Policy and Foreign Affairs. She came to personally know and follow God through her time in Chi Alpha, and her life has never been the same! As a result, Jenny stayed in Charlottesville upon graduation to complete the Chi Alpha internship. She's honored to serve in the fellowship that so radically transformed her life and to share the joy of following Christ with students! You can find Jenny drinking coffee at all hours of the day, playing her guitar outside, or reading at one of Charlottesville's many coffeeshops.

Erin Turley

Erin graduated from the University of Virginia in 2014 with a degree in Economics and Foreign Affairs, staying the following year to complete her internship with Chi Alpha at UVA. Although excited to have graduated college with her degree, she knows that her life was more radically transformed by the relationship with God that she came to know through the community of Chi Alpha! Erin is excited to join the staff this year and continue to serve in the ministry that changed her life! Erin likes ice cream and loves spending time with people.
