More than 73,000 Canadians explored life, faith and God with Alpha in 2013.

Earlier this month, Alpha Ministries Canada released the results from their 2013 survey. Shalia Visser, National Director of Alpha Canada says there was a 250 percent growth in the number of course run in 2013.

Visser says of the 73,000 Canadians that experienced Alpha in 2013, 17,000 of those were teens.

She says in September of 2013 they launched a new Alpha Youth Film Series geared towards  those aged 14 to 17. It's twelve episodes engaged over 20,000 high school students in some of life's biggest questions.

She says at the end of the day though, it's not actually about Alpha...
