Bring your Small Group Hosts and Helpers (and your entire team) to get ready to launch Alpha... Who Should Attend? This training is ESSENTIAL for your Small Group Hosts and Helpers and your core team.
This training utilizes totally new resources and we're asking every Alpha leader no matter how long you've run Alpha to attend. The goal is simple‐to bring every Alpha in our region to a much greater level of effectiveness in helping people come to know and follow Jesus Christ.
In attending this training our hope is that we would model what your training with your team should then look like prior to every Alpha you launch.
What is Alpha? Alpha is a series of sessions typically run over eleven weeks consiting of a meal | a talk | and a discussion, giving anyone the opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed and fun setting. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome.
What We'll Discuss and "Do":
Best Practices for Running Alpha
Hosting Small Groups
Understanding the Process a Guest Goes Through
An Actual Interactive First Night of Alpha
Prayer Essentials and a Particpatory Prayer Ministry Time
