Alpha Houston’s sole purpose is to help you run Alpha.

Alpha Houston works with a network of churches throughout Southeast Texas to train and equip volunteers to run Alpha.  We hear from churches how they are not only reaching more people for Christ, but the church as a whole is being transformed through running Alpha.  People all throughout the church are being activated to share the Good News.

Southeast Texas is a unique area. As one of the most culturally diverse regions in the United States, the Houston area is blessed with over 4000 churches, 29 prisons and numerous home and work-place ministries. Alpha has a proven track record of working in a variety of contexts and is readily adaptable to almost any setting. Now an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, Alpha Houston is available to help you utilize Alpha to introduce your friends and neighbors to Jesus.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
— Matthew 28:19-20

Church Endorsement

"We are in our second year of Alpha. Nothing I have seen in my many years of ministry can compare with what I have seen in the first year. People are coming to Christ. Baptisms have picked up. But not only are people coming to Christ, they are also connecting in the church and are becoming vital participants in our local expression of the body of Christ. Further, Alpha is creating an atmosphere of witness in the church which is resulting in other forms of evangelism being ignited. One tenth of our Sunday attendance (600) came to Christ last year."
- Bert Waggoner, National Director

The Alpha Houston Team


Rev. Mark Warpmaeker
Executive Director, Alpha Houston

“God provides opportunities for Christians to share their faith every day of our life and I’m thankful that I can be a part of this incredible ministry.” An Ordained Minister in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Mark was most recently the Executive Director of Lutheran Partners in Global Ministry (Minneapolis) after previously serving churches in Texas and Minnesota.

Gregg Bergersen
Director of Prison Ministries, Alpha Houston

Gregg served over 22 years in various senior intelligence roles in the Department of Defense. His heart for prison ministry and evangelism was borne out of personal experience, as Gregg accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior while in Federal prison. The Bible promises us that “God works all things for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purpose (Rom 8:28)”, as Gregg’s experience and transformation led him into a life of service and ministry.
