As we begin a new year, I’m anxious for you to hear the personal story of Gerard Long, the Director of Alpha USA. The Alpha course is a practical introduction to the Christian faith through a relaxed, friendly small group setting. Begun in the U.K., Alpha is now having a tremendous ministry here in the U.S. as well as in many other countries.
Gerard, originally from England, was a senior level banking executive sent by his company to Chicago. While in Chicago, God began to turn Gerard’s heart toward ministry. The tragic death of his teenage son was almost too much for the Long family to bear, but the Lord has sustained them in their grief. You’ll hear Gerard tell the whole story on this week’s edition of FIRST PERSON.
