Alpha at Coastal Church, Vancouver BC
Empowering students to share Jesus with their peers
Pastor Keith from Coastal Church in Vancouver is inspired by the next generation of Christians and their passion for sharing Jesus with others. In response to this passion, he ran Alpha for his students.
One of these students was Stephanie, who, despite growing up in a Christian home and knowing Jesus, experienced the Holy Spirit in a new way on Alpha and was transformed by His power and call on her life. After attending a youth conference at Coastal Church, Stephanie felt inspired to host an Alpha for her peers at her high school. To her surprise, 20 people signed up on the first day!
“I asked the Holy Spirit to give me the boldness and the courage to do this. I just remember praying. I was like, ‘Dear God, I pray that everything goes smoothly. Please give me peace with whatever happens.’ And more people signed up than I ever thought. So I was so surprised.”
