What to Expect
Experience Alpha is like a Director's Cut video - you'll get a 'behind the scenes' view of how Alpha isn't just another program - it is actually an integral part of HTB's church strategy and culture.
We are truly blessed to have an incredible group this year for Experience Alpha 2018, and we would love for this time to spark friendships and partnerships that will last a lifetime. Click below to download a list of leaders attending.
Our hope and prayer is that our time together at EA London will give you time to encounter God in new, exciting ways. We’re praying for you!
Meet the Team
Craig serves as Executive Director of Alpha USA and has a deep passion for the local church and a broad personal church background including Vineyard churches, Willow Creek, evangelical Presbyterian churches, and international church planting. As a result, he views Alpha as a vital tool for all churches.
He is a husband to Sarah and father to two children, Isaiah and Isabelle. They enjoy spending time as a family hiking and skiing in the mountains of Colorado (and let’s be honest; plenty of grocery shopping and suburb hopping too). They love to party, play and dig into the everyday challenges of life together.
Todd Proctor serves as Church Networks Director on the Lead Team of Alpha USA. He plays a valuable role on the ground in developing innovative ideas for strategy, vision, and prayer and developing networks with senior church leaders, key partners, and donors. Todd was a founder and long time leader of Rock Harbor, a church of five communities across Orange County with a unique call towards raising up a new generation of Christ followers. He also pioneered “The Stirring”, regional experiences uniting local churches in worship of God. Todd lives in Costa Mesa with his wife Lisa, and their four children.
Danielle recently joined the Alpha team as Strategic Church Networks Associate Director where she helps churches and leaders engage with the Alpha story. For the last 11 years, she led several ministries as the Director of Adults and Small Groups at Coast Hills Church in Orange County, CA. Danielle is passionate about the transformative power of God’s Word – teaching and sharing it in many diverse environments, and was very much attracted by Alpha’s approach to evangelism. She lives in Mission Viejo, CA with her husband Randy and their 2 sons. She loves running, reading and believes a good cup of coffee is the solution to most problems.
John serves on the Alpha USA Lead Team and oversees the ministry of Alpha across the US. In the past 18 years he has served as a church planter, campus minister at three different universities, and is also an author of The Coaching Guidebook, "A Practical Guide to Coaching Ministry Leaders." Most recently, John has served at Community Christian Church in Chicago Illinois as the Small Group Director overseeing their 12 campuses’ small group directors. John is passionate about helping churches create missional environments where people can explore faith, ask questions and share their point of view.
