OUR STAFF

 

Our staff team are all US Missionaries through the Assemblies of God. We each have a unique journey with Chi Alpha, and it brings us great joy to serve our students.

 
 
JORDAN NAPOLI Jordan is the director of Chi Alpha at Columbus State and really loves his job! He is passionate about seeing how God will expand students’ lives past even their wildest dreams and loves watching students build communities and friendships that will last a lifetime. Even after over a decade of ministering on college campuses, Jordan is still having fun playing card games, teaching students, and training the next generation. Courtney helps make events have the best food and fun that they can possibly have, and she helps raise three of the greatest kids ever, Aaron, Josiah, & Amelia. These kids love being around college students and enjoying all the “brothers and sisters” that they get to make in Chi Alpha.
