Gamma Phi Delta Christian
Delta Number Chapter
The male Christian Fraternity on the Sam Houston
Aspects of G-Phi-D
Bible studies – all of
the meetings consist of Jesus 101 bible study, this is geared towards issues
male students face on college campuses and what God says about dealing
Prayer – we believe in the power of prayer, all functions
and events begin with prayer and end in a prayer, and also reach out to
the campus with prayer meetings and events.
Community service – we believe that giving back to
the community is important, so every chapter is required to have
an off campus ministry or support an off campus ministry. Programs
such as tutoring, mentorships, after school bible studies, youth rallies,
prison ministries, and juvenile delinquency ministries. We do these
things through mission points that we are required to be done once a month,
or more if chapter is able to.
Orientation – We do not pledge! We believe we only
pledge to Jesus Christ. We do have orientations process in which
all members are required to fulfill. The process
consist of three phases, “Knowing God,” “Knowing yourself,” and “Knowing
your organization.” These activities consist of bible studies, community
service, Christian discipleship training, Christian leadership training,
and fraternity history and goals.
Programs – we have members only bible studies and
as a well a campus bible, Excellence programs, Ministers councils, Graduate
network, Campus Ministries, missions, and step shows.
Forums - we sponsor Christian forums where we bring
in speakers form the community (pastors and Christian leaders), have educational
programs dealing with spiritual issues, and men’s retreats.
Paraphernalia - we consider our paraphernalia as a
witnessing tool, because our leaders are Greek it draws people to ask members
what it stands for. We place scriptures on or shirts and on our items
so we may share the word of God.
Christian Mentoring/ Graduate network - one of the
best aspects of our fraternity is that God uses our brothers or other members
to mentor and encourage through the word of God the younger member
in the organization. Helping them understand the bible or just aiding
them in their Christian walk with God.
What do the colors mean?
Our colors are maroon and dark blue.
Maroon – symbolizes the blood of Jesus that washes us
white as snow.
Blue – symbolizes the baptism by water, signifying a change
in your life
after being submerged in the water and raising out a new creature
in Christ Jesus.
do our letters mean?
We read our letters backwards starting from D to G
Delta = is a temperature change in science,
but to us we use it as
a change in our lives.”
Phi = is not used a the
traditional meaning but to us we stick a cross in
the middle symbolizing “Jesus who died on the cross for our sins.”
Gamma = being the third letter in the Greek alphabet we
use it as
“ The resurrection of Jesus, raising on the third day.”
So the entire meaning of the letters is as follows “ a
change in our lives,
because Jesus died on the cross for our sins, and raised
on the third day.”
