WHY JOIN AN ALPHA EMERGING LEADERS COHORT?

"I found that the value of connecting within Alpha's emerging leadership scene, wasn't just found within the world shaping speakers that I heard from, the life changing retreats that I attended or even the extensive network of peers that was formed. For me, the true value was, and continues to be, the constant spirit of unity experienced within the diversity of believers. Alpha's emerging leaders cohort is a special place. I believe God is going to use the cohort to equip leaders with the tools needed for the next season of life and ministry."

" 'Come Holy Spirit' was the prayer of our emerging leaders cohort.

It shaped my year as I followed the Spirit of God in my context. I’ve seen a spiritual revival within our congregation. More stillness, practicing His presence, fresh in fillings of joy and laughter. Ministry can often feel lonely, emerging leaders connected me with the genuine relationships which have continued to support and pray as we step out and lead. Gathering with church leaders across Australia sharpened me and lifted my faith. An investment that will ripple far and wide."

"Alpha’s Emerging Leaders program has been a highlight of my ministry. Seeing young church leaders from across the nation come together in unity, vulnerability and in prayer has been such an encouragement. Alpha continues to remain relevant and on the pulse for the needs of the church and is leading the way in raising the next generation of church leaders across Australia."

Youth Pastor, Riverlife Baptist Church
