The ASD Outreach philosophy is simple. Encourage and support those ministries in which our parishioners are actively involved; to disciple and strengthen our members in their walk with Christ that they may reflect His light in the world.
Please browse the many and varied outreach opportunities below. If you have interest in investing your time and talents towards one of these ministries we will be happy to connect you with the ASD parishioner(s) who champions that cause.
Alpha USA – Developed as a short course at HTB in London, UK, in 1990 Nicky Gumbel took over running Alpha and found that many people outside of the church wanted to explore the Christian faith. Alpha now runs in every part of the global church, including the Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church and all mainline Protestant denominations. All Saints Dallas has been invested in Alpha since the beginning of our church plant as a way to reach our community with the saving grace of Jesus each Spring and Fall. Please contact [email protected] if you would like to join one of Alpha gatherings.
