Charles & Katy Sombrio
Charles is the director at WVU Chi Alpha. After growing up in Texas, he found Jesus through Chi Alpha at Sam Houston State University. He worked for the university for two years after graduation before answering God's call in 2014 to leave Texas and help build the Chi Alpha at WVU. Katy, on the other hand, grew up as a missionary kid overseas. After returning to Texas for college, she too found a new life, community, and calling in Chi Alpha at SHSU, which ultimately led her to pack her bags for West Virginia as well. Through their time working and living life together at WVU, Charles and Katy fell for each other and got married in 2016. They love having friends in their home, eating good food, and travelling to new places. Their son, Oak, joined their family in 2019 and has the biggest and best set of young aunts and uncles imaginable. The Sombrio's love their Chi Alpha family and wouldn't dream of being anywhere else!
Sean & Heather McEntee
Sean and Heather both grew up in Houston, Texas only 20 minutes apart, but they didn't meet until their time in college at Sam Houston State University. They both got involved in Chi Alpha early on and actually surrendered their hearts to Jesus just 24 hours apart. While at college Sean studied Business Administration while Heather was a Communication Studies major, both of which they still get to actively use in ministry today. It was on a missions trip to WVU in January of 2014 that they felt the Lord give them a burden and a real longing to go to WVU and reach out to college students with the gospel. Sean and Heather then got married in 2015 and moved half way across the country to live Morgantown! They also both love board games and are incredibly competitive with each other! If you ever play a game with them, you'll see!
Christopher grew up in Houston, Texas and graduated in 2012 from Sam Houston State University. He got involved with Chi Alpha his freshman year and the rest is history. Majoring in Communications Studies, his plan was to be a high school speech teacher and soccer coach. On a Chi Alpha mission trip to WVU in 2012, he felt God leading him to work for Chi Alpha full-time. He completed a one-year internship with Chi Alpha at Sam Houston to prepare to work full-time for Chi Alpha, and in July of 2014 he moved to Morgantown to join Jordan and Katie. Besides wanting to hang out with people all the time, Christopher enjoys reading, doing puzzles, and playing soccer.
