Waxahachie, Texas – February 22, 2012 – Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) will be hosting an Alpha Seminar course February 28 – March 1 in the Mundt room. SAGU alumnus and Assemblies of God Alpha representative David Short will be speaking at the event.
The Alpha course is a free, practical introduction to the Christian faith, designed specifically to answer those investigating questions about the existence of God.
The seminar is designed to prepare students, faculty and pastors on using the ministry tool in their churches and youth groups. SAGU students may take the seminar for one hour of credit. Local pastors, youth pastors and others are also invited to attend the seminar free of charge.
“At the last church I served, I was able to lead the Alpha ministry,” says SAGU faculty member Darren Daugherty. "It is a great ministry tool for reaching the unchurched, introducing them to Christ, and guiding them down the road of discipleship.”
Alpha is offered through various avenues – from a small group setting in a home to large church meetings. Alpha also has specialty ministries for youth groups, the workplace, prison ministries and senior citizen ministries. The Alpha course offers more than 60,000 courses in 169 countries.
