The annual Alpha Conference is being held Jan. 27-28 just outside of Phoenix, Arizona. Now, more than ever, Alpha Conference organizers believe there is a critical need for the Church to actively display a love that listens and encourages healing. Conference attendees are being invited to focus on themes of loving well and the importance of listening.
The Alpha Conference will take place in person at the Hillsong Church Mesa Campus. While the Livestream of the opening session on Thursday evening is free for everyone, advance registration is required.
