Alpha Youth Series


13 talks – 10 weeks / Jason Ballard and Ben Woodman

Released in 2017, the brand new Alpha Youth Series has been reimagined, rewritten, and redesigned. Through 13 episodes filmed in Vancouver, London, Paris, Rome, Jerusalem and many other incredible locations, the Alpha Youth Series explores timeless questions about life, faith and God for a new generation.
