Basic Instructions
1. A Group Charter and/or Leader Affiliation must be completed by all Chi Alpha personnel, church staff, volunteers, and student leaders seeking group charter recognition and/or leader affiliation with Chi Alpha Campus Ministries, U.S.A.
NOTES:
  • If leading more than one campus group, you are only required to pay for the first group charter/leader affiliation. All additional charter/affiliation fees are waived.
  • If you are a primary leader, you are required to affiliate and charter. This will ensure your campus will be a recognized Chi Alpha group, eligible for Tax Exempt Status, and listed on chialpha.com.
  • For a chartered group to benefit from the General Council Assemblies of God Tax Exempt Status, the chartered leader is required to provide an employer ID number. This is also referred to as the federal ID number. If you do not include the ID number on your charter form, even though you charter, you will not be eligible or covered by the tax exempt non-profit group status. You can secure this number in a matter of minutes at irs.gov and complete the form SS-4. Please note the employee or federal ID number is not the General Council Tax Number.
2. Read statements of Vision, Mission, Faith, Relationship, XA Best Practices and Beliefs, along with the Leader and Group Financial Responsibilities here.

3. Complete the form by July 9th for the upcoming academic year. A $25 late fee will be required if a Group Charter or Leader's Affiliation is received after July 9th. A $50 late fee will be required if a Group Charter or Leader's Affiliation is received after Aug 1st.

4. Official Approval: If you are a local campus leader, your district Chi Alpha Director will be notified of your group charter and/or leader affiliation. After District Approval is received, we will send you official recognition from National Chi Alpha Campus Ministries, U.S.A.
