What's New?


Updated Content

After getting feedback from youth leaders around the world, we put in countless hours into creating stronger, refined content. These changes will help communicate ideas and content more effectively.


More Adventure

The new series was filmed all around the world, in Vancouver, London, Rome, Paris, Israel, and many other incredible locations. It features interviews, testimonies and insight from people all around the world.


Higher Quality

With an increase in production quality, scope, and budget, the new series has a brand new look. More dynamic visuals and motion graphics bring the series to life, so that students will be proud to invite their friends.

Watch the Episodes


The episodes tackle core questions about life and faith from a Christian perspective. There are 9 weekly episodes and 4 episodes for the Alpha Weekend/Day. Each episode averages 23 minutes in length.

Throughout each episode, there are three discussion breaks. These breaks give everyone a chance to share thoughts and ideas in small groups without fear of being corrected or judged.

To access the episodes, all you have to do is sign up for Alpha Builder and create your Alpha.
