The greatest harvest field is in the workplace where so many of our colleagues are seeking for the meaning of life. The Alpha Workplace Conference 2018 (AWC18) is designed for Christians who want to reach their colleagues with the good news of Jesus Christ.
AWC18 marks the 7th year we’ve been bringing this conference to key cities in Malaysia. Many working believers leave filled with the clarity of their calling, fueled by the urgency of the gospel, passion for the lost, love for our nation and commitment to action. In 2017 alone, more than 250 workplaces in Malaysia ran more than 350 Alphas in the workplace. As a result, approximately 10,000 people heard the gospel and had the opportunity to explore the Christian faith. Many lives, families and workplaces were transformed as a result.
In this conference, you will have the opportunity to hear from some amazing speakers who witnessed and experienced God@Work. You will be inspired by their lives and motivated to action. We will have workshops where we equip you with the tool of Alpha which has been proven to be an effective, practical, sustainable and transferable process for working believers to start conversations about faith at work. There will also be plenty of time to network, pray for one another, plan and be commissioned as workplace ministers.
