Our team is here to walk alongside churches and leaders in discovering how to engage people far from God through hospitality, listening, and dependence on the Spirit.

We work with a growing network of churches and ministries throughout the Twin Cities to train and equip teams to run Alpha. As a result, more people are encountering Christ, and churches are being transformed as their people are activated to share Jesus through Alpha.

We desire to see the Kingdom of God made known amidst our post-Christian society. Alpha was birthed into a similar cultural landscape in London where people were hungry for a safe space that allowed them to ask questions, express doubts, and explore faith. Having a safe space to talk about life’s biggest questions is increasingly more and more relevant to our community, and as a result, we are seeing more churches running Alpha.

Alpha has a proven track record of working in a variety of contexts and is readily adaptable to almost any setting. We are here to help you utilize Alpha to introduce your community to Jesus

Brittany joined the Alpha USA team in 2019 after serving as a connections and adult discipleship director at a growing church. She is passionate about seeing the local church thrive.

Brittany’s Alpha story began when her church was first curious about running Alpha in their context. When she went to Experience Alpha in London, she immediately resonated with the thoughtful presentation of the gospel without pressure, shame or guilt attached. She has loved Alpha ever since. She is excited and grateful to be part of mobilizing individuals and churches in the region to help people far from God discover life with Him.

Brittany serves the region with Kylie Erickson, Regional Coordinator, Jeff Tillson, Associate Network Director, Nathan Chapman, Trainer, and an incredible team of advisors and volunteers!

Twin Cities Regional Coordinator

Kylie Erickson is the Regional Coordinator for the Central Time Zone Region and lives in her home state of Minnesota. Kylie has served as a Coordinator and Pastor for 5 years in various churches before joining the Alpha USA team in November 2021.

Kylie’s Alpha story began in the early 90s when she saw Alpha signs at her elementary school which hosted some of the first courses in the U.S.! She experienced the course herself as a student in college and was immediately drawn to the culture Alpha creates as the gospel is presented: radical hospitality, listening and dependence on the Holy Spirit. Kylie is excited to serve churches and organizations in the Central Time Zone as they help thousands of people discover life with Jesus.

Since then, Jeff has been involved with Alpha as a worship leader and course administrator. He has led courses for both youth and adults and served as a volunteer coach. Jeff is excited to partner with churches in our region to share Jesus through listening and hospitality.
