Jon and Melissa King
Jon and Melissa both came to college expecting only to go through the motions and earn a degree. Although they both earned a degree, during their time as students God changed our hearts to be more like His and revealed His plan for their lives. God opened their eyes to the realities of the college campus, and they began to see how God could change the lives of countless people who would soon be going out into the world.
As students Jon and Melissa began to serve God as small group leaders in Chi Alpha, and witnessed firsthand how God could use us if only they said “Yes” to Him. Soon after graduating they got married and began serving on staff with Chi Alpha at the University of Oklahoma. After spending a year in Baton Rouge, LA to complete a Chi Alpha internship at LSU they returned to Oklahoma and became the full time directors of OU Chi Alpha. Since then they have seen lives changed, faith grown, and God continue to move in crazy ways.
College is such a pivotal point in a student’s life. It is where they truly begin to discover who they are, without being told what to think or what to do, they are able to discover their identity. Jon and Melissa want students to discover their true identity in Jesus. Their goal is to meet students where they are, guide them through the questions and confusion that can happen in college, and walk with them as they begin to walk with Jesus.
They believe that every student who walks on campus needs to know the life-changing power of Jesus. They know that what God does in you he wants to do through you and truly believe that one changed life can change another life; disciples make disciples, students reach students.
They are committed to serving God on the college campus, because they believe that on the college campus, life change is world change.
