Register for The Alpha Conference 2024

Join us in Franklin, Tennessee
Wednesday, July 24 – Thursday, July 25, 2024!

What is The Alpha Conference?

And who is it for?

Each year, The Alpha Conference draws leaders from around the world, crossing generational, denominational, and ethnic divides.

Join the conversation as we reimagine the future of church, leadership, evangelism and how each generation plays their part. You’ll hear from a diverse group of mainstage speakers, hear stories, and be equipped through practical workshops. Most importantly, you will have space to encounter God, receive prayer and take a little break from the hustle of ministry life to take a deep breath and be renewed.

Whether you are actively running Alpha or not, this is an opportunity to motivate your team to share the good news in a good way, have fun together, and take the culture of listening, radical hospitality and prayer home with you.

As thousands of attendees testify, this is a conference you don’t want to miss!

We have workshop tracks designed especially for:

– Senior Pastors & Youth Ministry Leaders

– Alpha Leaders

– Students

Christian Huntley

Leadership Team Member, Huntley Leadership

At 14 years of age, Christian discovered his passion for building up the Catholic church which was the fruit of attending a Steubenville Youth Conference. Although raised Catholic, it wasn’t until this encounter with Christ that his life took on a new purpose. At the age of 16, Christian was drafted into the Canadian Hockey League, taking him halfway across the country and away from his family and faith community for the next five years. Being a hockey player and living out the childhood dream of most young Canadians wasn’t always in alignment with becoming the man that he knew God was calling him to be. However, knowing his identity was rooted in his relationship with Jesus, he made it his goal to live a Christ-centered life and help others to do the same. This led him to run Youth Alpha in the cities where he played, lead faith studies with his university hockey teammates, and go on mission at World Youth Day in Portugal this past summer. He currently leads worship and Alpha for young adults in his parish and is a Leadership Team Member at Huntley Leadership where he works alongside his father, Ron, to help Catholic communities worldwide experience cultural renewal and increase their impact as they live out God’s calling.

Alpha in Criminal Justice System

Speakers: Jenna Gaeddert, Associate Director of Volunteers, Alpha USA, Benny Lopez, Prisons Coordinator, Alpha USA

Panelist: Jen Ortman, Alpha Leader, Cherry Hills Community Church, Chuck Glenn, Former Nebraska Program Director for Prison

There is an overlooked mission field in our own backyard, one full of people desperate for help, healing, and wholeness. It’s a place much of our society tends to dismiss, filled with people who believe they have been cast aside, forgotten.

Alpha has been run in 630 prisons across 41 US states. This course is brought to prisons and jails by dedicated churches and organizations who have run Alpha at their local church or parish and want to extend their reach even further. These volunteers tangibly show the love of Jesus to men and women that society had tossed away and labeled as unworthy, broken, dangerous, or beyond help. Through Alpha, prisoners are reminded that God does not label them—he loves them.

Join us in this workshop unlock the kingdom potential of Alpha in prisons and make a difference in the lives of individuals seeking faith, community, and healing.
