What is the Life.Shared Initiative?
It is a series of resources to help Christians build relationships and equip them to invite others into conversation about faith.
80% of Alpha guests come because they are invited by a Christian they are in relationship with already. These new resources encourage the whole church body to experience the joy of sharing Jesus and seeing loved ones’ lives transformed.
Life Shared Small Group Series
Three Sessions about Sharing Faith
To complement the Sunday gathering, many churches meet mid-week in smaller groups. This three-session series will help equip your church in the art of invitation.
With biblical teaching from Jon Tyson, Danielle Strickland, and Jay Pathak, and real stories of invitation, each session explores what it means to live out God’s call to share our lives and invite people into an honest conversation around the Christian faith.
The series includes:
- 3 episodes (15 minutes each in length)
- Series trailer
- Discussion guide
- Leader’s guide
Weekend Service Resources
In addition to the Life Shared series, we’ve created materials for you to use in church leading up to your Alpha, including real-life stories of invitation.
Alpha 11:02 Prayer Card
Based on the Scripture Luke 11:02
Print and hand out a card to everyone in your congregation; encourage each person to pray for three people they’d like to invite to Alpha.

How do I get involved?
Register your Alpha
Register each Alpha course in Alpha Builder to be kept up-to-date on the latest resources we have available for you. When you register, you’ll also be able to promote your Alpha on our site, making it easier for people to find you.
We invite you to join us in prayer as churches nationwide run Alpha this fall with the aim of reaching more than 420,000 guests with the Gospel of Jesus. Join our national, twice-yearly Kingdom Come Prayer event from wherever you are in the U.S.
Alpha is primarily donor funded. This allows us to provide resources and support to churches across the U.S. completely free of charge. Some churches, however, have decided to support Alpha’s work by generously giving financially. Would you consider donating?
