June 22, 2019 | 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

The critical event for every Alpha is a guest walking in the door. No matter how well we prepare our Alpha Course, if no one comes…Churches everywhere are noticing fewer people attending. How do we connect with people in such a way that they will be willing to rethink their feelings about Christianity, about the Church? To help answer this and other questions relating to evangelism and Alpha, Alpha USA commissioned the Barna Group to study the problem. On June 22nd, we’re going to look at the major findings from the Barna Report, Reviving Evangelism. Released at the National Alpha Conference this past January, this study identifies key ways to connect with those outside our churches. After exploring this revealing study, 3 tracks will be available to Run, Grow and Sustain YOuth and Adult Alpha Courses.

Individual Registration: $30.00
Group Registration (4+): $25.00
Walk-In Registration: $35.00
