Run Alpha Small Group Intensive:

Focused Training for Small Group/Table Hosts and Assistants

Saturday, August 11 | 9AM—2:30PM 

Alpha is a place for our friends and guests to explore our faith. At the core of the Alpha experience are the Small Group/Tables Hosts and Assistants who pray, listen and labor to build an environment for exploring our faith in a fun, relaxed and non-judgmental environment.  

This training is for your hosts and assistants and will provide plenty of time for interaction and questions while going in-depth on:

  • Incorporating the Alpha Best Practices into the small group experience
  • Understanding the process your guests typically experience over the eleven weeks of Alpha
  • Learning the importance of "listening" in contrast to "telling"
  • Understanding the thresholds for someone coming to faith in Christ
  • Experiencing what prayer and ministry look like both from week-to-week and during the Alpha Weekend/Day-Away
  • Learning "who" and "how" to invite your friends and guests to attend an Alpha

Breakfast snacks and lunch will be served—and resources for your team and your guests will be available at reduced prices.

Cost:
Standard: $10
Group (4+): $8
