The Alpha program is divided into various categories to cater to the diverse group of people. There is Alpha Classic, Alpha Workplace, Alpha Marriage, Alpha Prison and Alpha Senior.
A few months ago, Bro. Jack from Alpha National Office was in Kuching with some members to conduct Alpha training in our Church, and he approached me to assist as a coordinator for Alpha Senior here in Kuching. I accepted it as I was already helping our Church with the Alpha Classic program. It is still running currently. For the next two days I will be attending a training for trainers sessions in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
Alpha is a fantastic tool for evangelizing because it is a structured program carried as team effort. You probably can image how difficult it is to do individual evangelizing because first you must be well verse with the Bible, second you need the time to talk to the person you are helping, and thirdly usually following up with this person is challenging for Alpha, friends and guests come to an agreed place at appointed time willingly otherwise they will not attend in the first place. Together as a team we let expert like Nicky Gumbel share the Gospel - The Good News. We in FBC is blessed, because our leadership decided to do this on Church basis rather than on Life Group(cell) level.
So I will be away for the next two days, Looking forward to the training and fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Kota Kinabalu.
You all have a blessed week a head. May God be with you in all you do.
