Join our CMIT program - a ten month training intensive designed by Chi Alpha to equip you for the calling God has put on your life. Whether you want to be a full-time campus missionary or are interested in overseas missions, we would love to come alongside you for a season as you experience deep formation through a rigorous theological study program, immersive and hands-on ministry experiences, and pastoral and leadership development through one-on-one discipleship.
We are one of many CMIT programs offered across the country, so what makes us different? To start, HXA is the only CMIT program in Montana. Nicknamed the Treasure State, Montana is home to some of the best outdoor experiences the world has to offer. Nestled in the heart of the Rockies and halfway between Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, Helena is home to hiking, swimming, fishing, hunting, skiing and so much more.
Helena is a beautiful place, but the people are pretty great too. HXA seeks to be a group of people growing in real relationship with God and others, so you’re not just an intern with us, you’re an integral part of our community. You won’t just be leading a small group, you will be exposed to every facet of our ministry, every level of our leadership, and many moments of our lives as well. This looks like preaching at our services, debating theology in our classes, leading mission trips with our students, and experiencing lessons taught with our horses. Did I mention we use horses as a discipleship tool in our ministry? XA Equine (XAE) is a unique outreach and ministry opportunity that seeks to cultivate depth, connection, and self-awareness within our students by utilizing horses.
Lastly, we are a ministry committed to innovation. Carroll College is a small, private, Catholic liberal arts college and, since 2019, has been closed to our ministry. So how do you minister on a campus where you are not allowed to have any formal presence? God has been faithful as we have navigated the hurdles, He has led our ministry to lean into the power of relationships, and He has grown our community every year. If you have a desire to pioneer a new campus or go into overseas missions where access is limited, HXA might be a great fit for you. Don’t just learn how to build a ministry when access to the mission field is limited, come and experience it yourself!
