Alpha at Coastal Church, Vancouver BC
Equipping Christians to share Jesus with their friends
Laura came to Canada from Colombia as a political refugee and was searching for peace and belonging.
While attending Coastal Church and participating in Alpha, Laura experienced incredible heartbreak but that led to her experiencing the peace of God for the very first time. It was a peace that she felt called to share with others, and so she took a step of faith and decided to host an Alpha for her friends.
Pastor James Fam of Coastal Church in Vancouver, BC, is passionate about empowering leaders and volunteers and seeing people like Laura answer the call to run Alpha.
“Alpha has helped us with our mission in a tremendous way because part of the design of Alpha is relationally driven. And even when it comes to outreach, when it comes to evangelism, the process is all based on relationship. And that really tackles the challenge of loneliness that people have when we introduce an opportunity to be part of an authentic, genuine community.”
