The Alpha Conference

08/02/2018 17:00 - 09/02/2018 21:00
Hillsong Phoenix, Mesa Campus
655 E University Drive
Mesa, AZ 85203
United States

February 8-9 | Hillsong Phoenix

Culture is shifting.

  • Only 2 in 10 Americans under 30 believe attending church is important or worthwhile (an all-time low).
  • 59 percent of millennials raised in a church have dropped out.
  • 35 percent of millennials have an anti-church stance, believing the church does more harm than good. [Barna]

This is more than a problem; this is an opportunity. What if the church finds a way forward? What if this shift represents the soil for spiritual renewal? What if the kingdom of God can break into our new post-Christian reality on earth as it is in heaven?

At The Alpha Conference 2018 we will explore this question: how can we cultivate a kingdom culture within the local church? A culture of unexpected hospitality and grace that breaks down barriers to the gospel. A culture of deepening dependence on prayer and expectancy on God’s Spirit. A culture that builds unity across historical church divides. 

Don’t miss this unique conversation and experience to join with churches, leaders, and volunteers across all denominations. 

  • You will hear real, hope filled stories from proven pioneers on the front lines of the Church.
  • You will discover key learnings and best practices from church communities effectively sharing Jesus in contexts increasingly hostile to the gospel.
  • You will have a chance to receive more from God for yourself and your team through moments of all-out worship and expectant prayer.

Alpha is an amazing tool to reach the lost and catalyze mission and community in the local church, and we have seen great growth on our Alpha course these past few years.  Our last Alpha had over 250 people at our Santa Monica location and we launched two new courses, in Malibu and Pasadena.   The Alpha Masterclass is our way to share with you what we have learnt. Over 40 people from pastoral teams across the country attended our last Alpha Masterclass, and we would love you to come to our next one in February.  

WHO IS THE ALPHA MASTERCLASS FOR?

The Alpha Masterclass is for two types of churches:

  • Churches exploring Alpha for the first time
  • Churches wanting to boost and grow the size and impact of their existing Alpha.

WHAT WILL WE COVER?

The Alpha Masterclass covers the following three areas:

  • Morning: What, why and how behind Alpha
  • Afternoon: Five Alpha Accelerators to transform the effectiveness and growth of your Alpha
  • Evening: Experience and see Alpha in action at Vintage Church

WHEN IS THE NEXT MASTERCLASS?

Date: February 21st
Time: 10am - 9pm
Cost: Free
