Chi Alpha Expeditions

Missions is in the DNA of our fellowship, and we provide many opportunities for students to serve during college and beyond. The tagline of XA Expeditions is "Every student prays. Every student gives. Every student goes. Every student welcomes." Our hope is that every student gets the opportunity to go on a short-term mission trip while in college.

Give a Year

The motto of XA Expeditions is Give a year, pray about a lifetime. If you are considering giving a year to missions, we want to help! This page will be updated regularly with the information you need if you are considering giving a year to missions. This information is specific to serving with Assemblies of God World Missions. If you want to serve with another organization, we encourage that as well, but can't provide any specific information.

If you interested in more information about giving a year, contact erin@xaatuva.com. Give-a-Year meetings will continue in Fall 2017.
