Margene’s Secret Lab

We were blown away with the consistent attendance and immediate transparency in the breakout rooms (small groups). From that single, last-minute online course, six people chose to be baptized. God is moving; even online!

I want to see an actual Alpha

Visit a live Alpha for a behind-the-scenes look at how churches run Alpha in their unique contexts. This is one of the best ways to see what Alpha is all about. Find an Alpha and contact the Alpha administrator for details.


I am ready to run Alpha

Come to our next Run Alpha event. Gather with other churches across the network to learn and practice some of the unique elements of Alpha. When finished, you will have everything you need to run Alpha.



Message from our Network Director

Alpha Houston is proud to have been the first regional Alpha office established in the US in 2001. Since then, we have trained hundreds of leaders and organizations to run Alpha effectively in a variety of settings – churches, homes, schools, businesses and prisons. Our mission is to empower, train and equip Christian communities throughout Greater Houston to spread the good news of Jesus Christ utilizing Alpha.

Church Endorsement

“Alpha is a great value. The gospel story is the best story. The only agency responsible for telling it is the church. The church’s delivery system needs help. That’s what Alpha does. And the great thing is that it tells the story so effectively to both insiders and outsiders and its track record makes it clear it crosses cultures and colors.”

Senior Pastor, Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church

Workshops in this Track

Learnings from Asbury on the Power of Prayer

Speaker: Angela Chadwick, Global Director of Prayer, Alpha USA

Alpha’s Global Director of Prayer will interview some of the spiritual leaders involved in the Asbury revival where a chapel worship service caught the attention of our country. You’ll hear stories of how the students were deeply moved by God through the simplest forms of worship and how the leaders made sure the only celebrity on stage was Jesus. You’ll also be amazed by the powerful breakthroughs in young people’s lives through the gentlest of prayers.

Additionally, we will explore how the resurgence of faith in one small American town is relevant to every person in the Church and how it shapes how we share the good news in a good way with this generation.

How to Facilitate Eternal Connections with Jesus

Speaker: Danielle Strickland, Spiritual Leader, Justice Advocate, Communicator, Peacemaker

Encounter is God’s favorite way to spiritual revelation. Why do we emphasize information-formation as our primary means of discipleship? What if we put more time, energy, and effort into facilitating more encounters? Be prepared to discuss together how cultivating curiosity becomes a means to do just that. We will talk techniques, experiences, and new ideas.

Everyday Miracles

Speakers: Dr. Chloe Swart, Associate National Director for Alpha UK, and Dr. Russo Swart, New Wine Cymru Prophetic and Healing Team

This workshop will look at how to heal the sick as a part of our everyday missional lives. Following Chloe’s PhD studying healing miracles in Wales, Chloe found that Christians in Wales were praying for their friends, family, and colleagues, in the gym, in the supermarket, at work; wherever they found themselves, as well as in church services, and Alpha courses. Healing is a missional tool that points toward Jesus. Unpack the theology of healing, while also hearing very practical teaching and demonstration of how to heal the sick in an everyday way.
