After you've created your Alpha, you'll see 5 tabs which indicate the next steps. Here are some tips to help you save time and organize a worry-free Alpha:
1 - DASHBOARD: You'll see your top 3 currently running Alphas ("active"), learning modules and newly added materials. Click on your Alpha name to open the box.
Once you click into the Alpha box, you'll see your upcoming session with date and time, and all the related session materials right there (videos, weekly questions etc).
2 - SCHEDULE: Customize the online schedule so that the dates match up with each week of your Alpha. We will send you weekly emails with top tips according to this online schedule. When your Alpha ends, it will move to the "Completed Alphas" section and you can create your next Alpha!
3 - TEAM: Add your teams' emails, so they can access all the related resources. They can see the online schedule, preview the talks, download promo, and review the small group questions.
4 -SERIES MATERIALS: Download the 3 team training videos and meet with your team to watch & discuss them. Download the weekly Alpha talks and save the videos to your computer (or flash drive) for later access. Print out the team and guest handouts as needed.
5 - PROMOTE: Encourage your whole church to participate in inviting people to Alpha. We have a wide variety of promo including guest invitations, social media images, banner images and promo videos in this section online.
Now that you've set up your Alpha, grab a coffee and take a few minutes to go through the Leader Training videos, specifically for the primary Alpha leader. This will give you a framework for how Alpha works best!
