Welcome We are parishes successfully implement Alpha and create the best possible experience in the discipleship process for leaders and parishioners. The goal of Alpha is not to add another "program" to parish life but to shift our focus from programs to people and a discipleship-oriented process.
Alpha is be a key part of this process. In fact, Alpha is one way that people can discover Jesus so they can enter more fully into the journey of following, worshiping and sharing Jesus.
Purpose This Alpha website page seeks to equip leaders of the Diocese of Green Bay with Alpha resources and information to confidently lead people to Jesus Christ at their parish.
Alpha for Leaders Alpha small group leaders who have been chosen by the pastoral leadership are welcome to attend any one of the Alpha trainings being offered by the Diocese of Green Bay from November of 2017 to January of 2018. Alpha trainings will instruct parish leaders on how Alpha fits into the discipleship and why it works. With this, participants will be introduced to Alpha principles, session structure, small-group dynamics, shared prayer, promotional tips and more.
Run, Grow, and Youth Alpha Training Save the Date: Saturday, June 22, 2019! Presentations, discussions and networking will include the following topics:
Barna Group Study Unpacked
Post-Alpha | What's Working, What's Not!
Alpha for Youth | What's Working, What's Not!
The key findings of the Barna study relate incredibly well to what we do with Alpha. After examining the Barna study, you'll hear from experienced Alpha leaders about Alpha best practices, small groups, building and growing your team, creating an invitational culture, and much more. For instance, Jordan Biere, Alpha USA National Youth Director at Alpha USA, will be joining us. Three main tracks of this Alpha training include a brief presentation and breakout sessions where best practices and creative ideas are shared.
First track: The "Run Alpha track" is for churches who are new to the Alpha story and who are seeking to learn best practices in reaching people for Jesus using Alpha.
Second Track: The "Grow Alpha track" is designed for churches with Alpha experience and will dive deeper into how to grow and improve your Alpha in order to see its impact increased.
Third Track: The "Youth Alpha track" will give insights and training in how to connect with youth through the Youth Alpha Film Series.
