The National Alpha Training Lab is designed for your team; whether your church is new to running Alpha or you want to see your Alpha grow. 

At this one-day experience, you will learn how to effectively run Alpha in any context--including Youth, Prison, and Catholic. You'll learn the story of Alpha and why it works, what to do after Alpha, and how running Alpha can revitalize the culture of your church. 

Other topics of the day include: 

  • Understanding Alpha best practices

  • How to improve your invitational culture to get more guests

  • What to do after Alpha

  • How to build a team that will take Alpha to the next level

What to Expect

The Run Alpha track is for churches who are new to the Alpha story and who are seeking to learn best practices in reaching people for Jesus using Alpha. 

The Grow Alpha track is designed for churches with Alpha experience and will dive deeper into how to grow and improve your Alpha in order to see its impact increased. 

Check-in and registration will begin at 8:30 and a light continental breakfast will be available. We will begin training at 9 a.m. with a time of prayer and worship and will then explore the story of Alpha. 

You'll hear from both our national team and experienced Alpha churches about the Alpha best practices, small groups, building and growing your team, creating an invitational culture, and much more. You'll also have the opportunity to experience what an Alpha evening may feel like over lunch.

Toward the end of our day together, we'll set aside time for you to collaborate and plan with your team and other churches; closing the day with a special time of challenge and prayer ministry. 

The training will conclude at 4 p.m.  

* In addition to these national training opportunities, we have a variety of local experts who lead training events to help you to Run Alpha. See if there is a training near you.
