Run Alpha for Youth Online
In these challenging days, more than ever before, youth are asking big questions about life and meaning. Are you creating an online space for them to wrestle with their big questions? Are you helping them connect with each other and with God? Where are they turning for answers? Where are they turning for hope? What could happen if you were the one who created a place for them to discover what a relationship with Jesus looks like?
Launching February 17, 2022
LIFE ON PURPOSE Series
LIFE ON PURPOSE is designed to serve teens by helping them make the connection between meaning, belonging, impact, and the joy of having their friends come to know Jesus.
The four-episode series works well as envisioning and training for your youth group or individual youth as a lead-up to hosting Youth Alpha.
Register for our launch event where we’ll be joined by Ben Woodman, one of the hosts of the Alpha Youth series and Tim Gonsalves, the National Director of Youth at Alpha Canada for a first look at this new student resource.
Alpha helps create a space that includes:
Tools to make your sessions fun and engaging (with new online game suggestions)
Build a deeper sense of community in each session
Access the entire 13 episodes of the Alpha Youth Series for free
Each episode teaches a different topic of the Christian faith
Based on an easy to use interactive format
Discussion Guide to help take conversations even deeper
Simple ideas for anyone to host a dynamic small group discussion

Introducing the Alpha Youth Ministry Monthly

Over the past two years, we’ve seen Alphas running in high schools all led by students from other youth groups that we brought together. Alpha was the primary tool to put in their hands, and we’ve seen a few thousand people go through Alpha through the obedience of these students.
Alpha provides a fresh, fast-paced introduction to the Christian faith which can capture a young person’s imagination and set them on the road to finding or discovering faith.
Youth Alpha has been a catalyst for our ministry this year. Not only are we seeing our committed kids owning their faith in new and profound ways, but we are also seeing many kids making first time decisions to follow Christ through the series.
How do I get started?
After you sign up online, we’ll show you how to create a space where people who wouldn’t normally come to church feel comfortable having a discussion about God.
We’ll provide you with tools and training to equip your team to run Alpha and inspire the church to invite their friends.
Then you’ll get access to everything you need to run Alpha.
The Alpha Youth Series is a great tool for students to use to share the gospel with their friends; whether during a school lunch hour, at their home, online, or in a coffee shop.
