Allison Bayer

My name is Allison Bayer and I recently graduated from Carroll. I am from California and came to Carroll to play softball and study Environmental Science. My college experience completely changed my sophomore year when I gave my life to Jesus and experienced life with Him. Since then, CCF has been an influential community in my walk with Christ! I love rocks, mountains, and water and everything in between. I am most passionate about the lord’s creation and how the natural world, though temporary, needs to be loved as Jesus loved.

Kelsey van Dyken

College ministry is something that I’ve felt called to for a while and am blessed to be able to pursue that here where that calling began. I originally studied Chemistry at Carroll but during my junior year switched to studying Theology with a Ministry emphasis—and never looked back! I aspire to combine ministry and animals, so horses and dogs are constantly woven into my schedule. I also like crunchy piles of leaves, reading a book by a fire, and swimming in nearly any body of water.

Tim Pays

I am originally from Sandpoint, Idaho, but moved to Helena to go to Carroll on a football scholarship. God transformed my life during college with the help of CCF and a few obedient Christians that showed me what it looked like to serve God with all my heart. Now, I long to show the next generation what it looks like to serve God! I enjoy anything outdoors! Camping, fishing, boating, basketball, and hiking are just a few of my favorites.

Todd Pays

I came to Carroll to play football and study civil engineering, but God had so much more in His plan. Through CCF, I was discipled and grew in my faith. The lens through which I look at life has changed and I hope to lead other students to live a life through a lens of faith as well! I love competition, the outdoors, and good food. I’m excited to meet new people and to experience life with the students God crosses my path with!

Autumn Smith

It wasn’t until I came to Carroll College that I understood my need for a personal relationship with Jesus.  It is now my passion to see students experience the fullness of Jesus being the center of their lives! I enjoy meeting with students one on one, this is where I can see God work up close! In my spare time I enjoy nature adventures, art anything and making or eating good food!

Core Values

These core values represent Chi Alpha Campus Ministries’ most deeply held beliefs. They serve to guide our decisions, our leadership practices, and our community life. All our organizational actions will reflect these core values.

Community. Community is a covenantal value shaping our mission to the university, and our priority to come together for biblically commanded action. The salvation of Jesus offers the forgiveness of sins and the incorporation into the people of God. As a collegiate community we are to be “salt and light” showing to the world what it means to authentically love God and one’s neighbor.ers to become servants themselves.

Creativity. God is first revealed in Scripture as a creative God. We are committed to achieving commitment that appreciates the proven with an adaptive open eye to what He has in store today and beyond. His Spirit will release to us new ways, ideas, and plans.

Diversity. A diverse community reflects a reconciliation of students to Jesus across all campus demographics. Each student possesses unique gifts, and we seek to encourage their full implementation in the community. We also accept diverse methods and approaches to ministry. We celebrate these unique ministry expressions as the demonstration of what God is doing on our campuses and encourage their effective application.

Excellence. Striking performance, exceptional virtue, and continuous improvement exemplify excellence. Excellence goes the “second mile” by doing the best possible job. It calls out of us far more than we can possibly imagine. Excellence guides how we make significant choices. It causes us to discover our true God-given capabilities. Excellence depicts our approach to leadership, work, organization, and our life together.

Integrity. Integrity describes the state of sound moral uprightness. It is characterized by honesty, truthfulness, respect, and sincerity. Integrity in its simplest biblical definition means wholeness or completeness. Integrity invites oneself into a partnership with the Holy Spirit. This fosters an atmosphere of credibility and plausibility among those to whom we minister and within our communities on campus. Integrity promotes long-term success.

Servant-Leadership. Servant-leadership is a practice that places the good of those led and their progressive maturity over the self-interest of the leader. It shares power and status for the sake of the common good of each individual and the community. Its chief motive is to serve-first, as opposed to lead-first. The final goal is to empower oth
