The story of the Bible is a narrative that spans the entire existence of mankind. What’s the message of this story? Reconciliation. Mankind chooses independence over God, God sets in motion a plan to bring his children back to himself, we reach the climax with Jesus who makes the reunion possible. And then the plot twist comes. How does he choose to spread this message of reconciliation? Through US. We are Christ’s Ambassadors or Christou apostoloi in Greek, which we abbreviate with the first letters Chi Alpha (XA). We are a movement of students who are continually being reconciled to Christ and who are on mission to reconcile others. We’re not just another ministry, we’re more of a family. And we are convinced that there is nothing more fulfilling, purposeful, or fun than pursuing God together. So come join the family!
CSO stands for Christian Science Organization, and they can be found on college campuses all over the world. CSOs started with a student named Wilfred Cole at Harvard University in 1904. Cole sent a letter to Mary Baker Eddy asking for a provision for an official Christian Science campus organization. He never received a response, so he let the idea go for the time being. A year later, he was compelled to write Mrs. Eddy again. This time Mrs. Eddy responded to his letter and requested that he draft a bylaw for the organization. He did so and sent it back to her. She simplified it, added it to the Manual, and that’s how CSOs were born.

At Bama Wesley, we exist for one reason: to be a place where anyone can discover their God-given identity while fulfilling their God-ordained purpose. We do this through three different focuses: upreach (orienting ourselves towards God), inreach (connecting within our Wesley community and building relationships), and outreach (extending ourselves beyond the walls of the church to connect with the larger community through service and evangelism). We want to be a place where any student – regardless of their past or present – can be part of a community on campus. We are a ministry of the United Methodist Church but our students are from increasingly diverse faith backgrounds. Wherever you are coming from, you’re welcome here. Wesley has many events that can vary from week to week, but there are two constants every single week: On Monday evenings at 6:00pm, we start our week with a prayer service along with communion. This is a service led mainly by students sharing personal testimonies in an intimate environment. Just as Jesus invited all to his table, we invite all to partake in communion along with the rest of the service. On Wednesdays at 8:00pm we have our main service. Traditionally, this service is composed of three parts that function together: worship, a message, and small group discussion at the end. It is a staple to our ministry and is a great way to connect with other students that attend Wesley. Beyond that, we offer a variety of small groups where students can get connected to one another all while growing closer to God. These groups range from doing activities such as playing games or sports to deeply reflecting on the way that Christ is working in one’s life in a smaller, discussion-based environment. These groups form life-long friendships and are easy to get plugged into, just talk to someone here to get plugged in!
It is our goal to embody the love of Christ and to show this love to every single student on this campus. We strive to do this by serving others and denying ourselves (Philippians 2). The mercy and grace of God toward the Church is why we exist, but this gift is open for all. Tide 4 Christ has regular meeting times each week: Sunday morning at 9:00am for Bible class with worship at 10:00am, Monday night at 7:00pm for a student-led devotional, and Wednesday night at 6:00 pm for a free meal and Bible class. These events take place at Central Church of Christ (304 Hargrove Road). We also offer LIFE groups every Sunday night where we meet in each other’s homes to study God’s Word. We would absolutely love to meet you and for you to be a part of the Church so please reach out if you have any questions. Make sure to follow us on Instagram and Twitter (@tide4christ) for updates on events!
