Millions of people do not know Jesus. You cannot reach them all, but you can reach one.
As you focus on reaching your one with the Gospel, here are some resources to encourage and equip you along the way. However, remember what Pastor Gregg reminded us — "God is not asking for our ability but our availability." Simply be faithful to follow His leading and tell your one about Jesus!
Imagine if every believer could answer that question with the name of a person who is far from God — a person for whom they’re praying and with whom seeking to share the Gospel. That’s the intention behind our next message series.
God’s people don’t merely need another method for evangelism — what they need is a white-hot passion to see people who are far from God experience the new life He offers through Jesus Christ.
In this five-week series, we'll focus on prioritizing personal ownership of the Great Commission as we each intentionally pursue one person with the hope of the Gospel.
While we can’t reach everyone, we can each reach someone. We can all take responsibility for one. And, because of God’s power and the work of His Spirit, each of our ones can add up to make a significant impact for God’s kingdom.
Who's Your One? Song This original song was written by our Sienna Campus Pastor Malcolm Marshall and Demetri Stafford, a ministry intern at our Sienna Campus, as well as an upcoming Christian rapper in his own right. They wrote this song as a free giveaway with the aim of providing another way to remind us that there’s someone God has prepared to hear the Gospel directly from our mouths.

ALPHA GROUPS Alpha is a series of sessions (often hosted in someone’s home) exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. There are three core components to every Alpha group:
short focused talk on a topic related to Christ
discussion regarding the short talk
Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome. Our church sees Alpha groups as a great tool to connect with our “Ones” whom we have been praying for over the past several months. We will be hosting a lunch and learn on Alpha Groups on Sunday, November 17th at The Loop Campus. This will be an informational gathering to share the vision of Alpha Groups. A short training session for those interested in starting / leading their own Alpha group will follow in the weeks to come. To learn more about Alpha Groups, visit alphausa.org.
