The Alpha Shapers program is focused on investing into the next generation of Australian church leaders.
Joining an Alpha Shapers cohort is an opportunity to journey with a small group of peers, exploring the challenges and opportunities that are unique to Australian emerging leaders. The program provides a rare opportunity to connect with global leaders and participate in perspective-shifting experiences both in Australia and overseas.
