Youth leaders and students are innovating to run not only their gatherings online, but also their Alphas online; demonstrating remarkable ways to show love and hospitality to guests through a digital experience.
Youth Alphas all over Canada are running online and we want to serve students and leaders across the nation as they continue to share life, faith and Jesus.
The 3 main ingredients of Alpha are still effective online:
Getting to know one another through conversation.
Learning together from the Alpha video talks.
Everyone having a chance to share their thoughts and questions.
Students are encountering Jesus for the first time online.
“We got to do Alpha online with people all around our city and it was just amazing ’cause we’re not all in one school and we united students faster than ever before. We had the privilege to witness Jesus enter the hearts of a couple of our friends and renew people’s hearts and refresh them.”
– Winston, student, Calgary, AB
