School of Ministry (CMIT)


We are delighted to be one of the training sites for Chi Alpha nationwide (there are over 300 XA groups coast-to-coast).

The Northern California / Nevada Chi Alpha School of Ministry (a Chi Alpha CMIT program) is a ten month training experience designed to prepare you for a career in campus ministry. You will be placed at one of our schools (Stanford, Berkeley, UC Davis, Sac State) to be mentored by a veteran campus pastor.

Over the ten months of the program, you will pursue four key areas of growth:

  1. Prayer
  2. Bible Knowledge
