Alpha

"Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God." 2 Corinthians 5:20

 

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.

ALPHA: Why Alpha?

Dustin+ Messer (All Saints Dallas) and David+ Larlee (St. Bartholomew) discuss reasons why the Alpha program is a helpful tool for churches.  

Mind the Gap: A Ministry of the Holy Spirit

David+ Larlee, rector of St. Bartholomew’s in Dallas, shares ways the Holy Spirit fills in the gap between our minds and our hearts.

The Value of Prophetic Ministry

When we use the gift of prophecy to mine the treasure inside of someone made in the image of God, a major shift begins to take place in him or her. That person is introduced to a heavenly perspective on their life.

Building Marriages to Strengthen Communities

Strong marriages can provide a strong foundation for society, so having a course to recommend to others gives AMiA churches a proven tool for ministry.

Safe Conversations Workshop

Now, more than ever, it’s important that couples treat each other with kindness and compassion. But how, when it’s so easy to let the stress of this extraordinary time cause us to lash out or retreat inward instead?

Experiencing the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit day or weekend retreat has always been a high point in the life of churches where I have served. Although it is part of the Alpha program, all Alpha participants for that season and all of our parishioners are encouraged to come and to bring friends.

Alpha: A Tool for Transformation

"It is my heartfelt conviction that the Alpha course is a tool Jesus is using to transform culture and society. Hospitality and listening have become a primary way in which Jesus is making himself known to those who don’t know him." David+ Larlee

Reaching Dallas Through Alpha

"I love the look on people’s faces when we talk about “Does God Heal Today?” It’s a beautiful thing to see people realized that yes, the Lord is up close and personal to us." David+ Larlee
