Many of the clubs at Chandler-Gilbert Community College have pretty self-explanatory names, like the Business Professionals club or the Psychology club. But upon first hearing the name Kairos, it is not clear what the club is about. According to the faculty sponsor for Kairos, Scott Adamson, “The name Kairos comes from Romans 5:6 – ‘For while we were still weak, at the right time [sic] Christ died for the ungodly.’ Kairos is a Greek word that speaks to God’s perfect timing. Many years ago, the students who had been involved in the club chose this name.”
The goal of Kairos is to help students grow not only spiritually but also intellectually and socially. It is a place for Christians to fellowship and study relevant topics in today’s culture. Some of the topics they will be discussing this semester are Christianity in academia, making life decisions, foster care and adoption, pro-life/pro-choice, and community service.
Kairos is led by the faculty sponsor Scott Adamson and president Darien Nieves. They meet every Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m. in Ironwood 208. If you would like more information about Kairos, you can text @cgcckairos to 81010.
