Alpha at Coastal Church, Vancouver BC
Reaching the lost, the lonely and the isolated
Pastor Dave Koop of Coastal Church in Vancouver recognized the deep need for Christ and community in a city full of isolated and lonely people.
Ralph was one of those lonely people, desperately seeking a community he didn’t know he needed. His life changed when he entered Coastal Church and experienced commitment and love through the invitational and hospitable culture. Joining Alpha, he felt purpose, connection, and belonging.
“When you join a church when you develop friends, some are lifelong, and some come and go. But Alpha was different because we weren’t just listening to a pastor giving us a beautiful sermon. We got to talk, and we got to bring our hurts, our joys, into that.”
– Ralph, Alpha Guest
