#WRAPitinRED – An Alpha Movement In NE Ohio

Five "P's" to See it Happen
Alpha NE Ohio’s goal is to build a movement of more and better Alphas here to see more people reached for Christ. Using a combination of Five "P's": Prayer, Prepare and Plan, Promotion and Partner… we want to empower God's people to invite more people to Alpha. Our hope is to invite 600,000 people or more to an Alpha in NE Ohio between now and the end of 2022—with the potential to see 60,000 or more new Christ-followers in our region.

The “red” wording (#WRAPitinRED) comes from the red graphics used on many of our billboards, car magnets, church banners and postcard invitations.  The red also represents God’s mercy and kindness that He showed us as Jesus shed His blood on the cross.  #WRAPitinRED at its core is an effort to see God’s loving arms wrapped around the people of NE Ohio as they’re invited to Alpha by you and me
