Georgia Southern University has several religious organizations and nearby churches that are looking to reach out to its college population. At a university of over 20,000 students, many religious organizations are trying to make their way on campus, but not all have been successful.

 

From Christianity to Earth-based faiths, the religious organizations on campus cover a wide range of religions and beliefs. The religions that are more accepted have organizations with a large following, while the religions that aren't have organizations that are dwindling in size and impact.

Student Profile : Charles Montana

By: Caroline Hodge 

Charles Montana is a senior journalism major at Georgia Southern. Montana like many other students struggled with the temptations that college life can bring and in efforts to change his ways, he started to live his life for Jesus.  

 

“I believed this whole lie of the college experience growing up, like what you see in the movies. I thought that drinking, sleeping around, and not going to class would bring me happiness when it actually crashed my life down,” Montana said.

 

He then became a member of Chi Alpha Campus Christian Fellowship.

 

“I realized that I didn’t want to live this way anymore, so my friend Jay took me to a Chi Alpha meeting and I dedicated my life to living for Jesus,” Montana said.

 

 

Charles went with Northpoint Church to Jamaica last summer where he evangelized to the local people through physical labor and sermons. 

Chi Alpha is a ministry that is involved with 300 different campuses nationwide. The Georgia Southern group meets every Tuesday at 8:00 P.M. in the Russell Union Theatre.
