Fall Retreat 2018
October 12th - October 14th, 2018
Come break away from the academic grind for a weekend of spiritual renewal!
We're going down to Santa Cruz to worship God, hear from His Word, and connect with each other. It's going to be an insanely fun time.
SPECIAL BONUS: this year for the first time ever we're combining retreats. The Chi Alpha groups from Chico State, Sacramento State and Stanford University are going to come together. More people = more energy + more resources = more better!
OUR SPEAKERS: CHRISTIAN AND CHRISTINA GONZALEZ-HO

In 2010, he began graduate work at Yale, but left after a semester to intern at the International house of Prayer in Kansas City. During his time in Kansas City, he became the Director of Design at Exodus Cry, an anti human trafficking organization. He currently works as a cultural researcher in Los Angeles, CA. Christian loves to surf, snowboard, play basketball, and drink really, really, good coffee.
Christina is a worship leader, musician, and writer. She holds a B.A. in Comparative Literature from Stanford University (2010), where she was a worship leader and an officer for Chi Alpha. She then received a J.D. from Harvard Law School (2014).
