To make disciples of Christ from all walks of life and to transform our society one life, one church and one community at a time.
Our vision is a statewide network of churches delivering the Alpha course to thousands of Iowans. By establishing the Alpha course as the evangelistic tool of choice in churches throughout the state of Iowa, we will impact communities, nursing homes, assisted and independent living communities, prisons, college campuses and our military installations.
