Expanding Our Reach

If you have a heart for reaching more people in the Gulf with the Good News and Alpha in particular, we believe you might like this idea…

As we continue to engage with and provide support to more churches across the Gulf region, the need for our presence in these countries has grown significantly, which has a major impact on our travel budget.

This is where our idea comes into the picture.

Do you have unused Emirates Skywards or Etihad Guest miles in your account? Perhaps some that are about to expire, or a surplus you’re not sure what to do with? If so, would you possibly consider transferring them to us, and so help us save money on flights? Every contribution makes a difference.

Our goal is to have over 1,000 Alpha courses running in more than 100 churches throughout the region in the next few years, and with your support, we’re one step closer to achieving it!

Making a transfer is incredibly simple and cost-free! Just visit the Emirates Transfer Miles website, use the recipient membership number EK502280936, along with my account email address: herrmannarnd@gmail.com, and select how many miles you are willing to invest into our cause.

Should you have Etihad Guest rather than Emirates miles, visit the Etihad Transfer Miles page, using the membership number 100266778544, and the same account email address as above.

Please be assured that all transferred miles will be used solely for ministry and never for private purposes.

Thank you in advance for considering this opportunity to make a meaningful impact. Your generosity will help transform lives and communities. Should you require any further information, don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

How is Alpha making a difference in the Gulf?

Alpha is a tool built for local churches, already having impacted millions of people in over 100 countries and over 100 languages around the world. Hear from church leaders around the Gulf as they share how Alpha has made a difference in their communities.

The Gospel is 100% free. Alpha is too!

Support our mission

I do believe that Alpha has proven its worth as an incredibly powerful tool to enable us to preach the gospel.

Senior Pastor, Well of Life, Dubai

When I think about the resources, the Alpha Course, the Marriage Course and the Parenting Course… I’m really excited about how these resources have been released to the worldwide church with no strings attached. I love that they are high quality, in different languages… for free.

Anglican Chaplain of Protestant Church of Oman

What I love about Alpha is that it’s not really a formula, it’s just community, around a table, with the gospel of Jesus and an openness to Holy Spirit.
