Jesus said you judge a tree by its fruit. Mallon and Huntley's experience is mine: Alpha, used as a tool, a part of a larger strategy for parish renewal, is hands down the best thing I've seen for leading people into a life-changing encounter with Jesus. --Fr. John Riccardo, Pastor, Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish, Plymouth, Michigan
Unlocking Your Parish is a goldmine of practical wisdom for transforming a parish into a community of missionary disciples. Drawing on years of experience, Ron Huntley and Fr. James Mallon explain why Alpha is a powerful tool for evangelization and how to navigate the challenges involved in changing a parish culture. Together they consider the full spectrum of questions from the appropriateness of Alpha in a Catholic setting to how to choose an Alpha emcee. From beginning to end, this book is engaging, inspiring, and challenging to our preconceived ideas about parish renewal. I will be recommending it everywhere I go! --Dr. Mary Healy, Professor of Sacred Scripture, Sacred Heart Major Seminary

Love the chapter on selecting your team and why it is okay - even necessary - to invite people into team who are the right people and we’ll fitted for their role. Our guests are too important to have them risk a “bad” experience because as leaders we are too frightened to say “no” to people who feel they “deserve” to be on team!
The chapters on the theological underpinnings of Alpha, planning Alpha, the impact of Alpha - well all of it - if carefully followed, can set your team up to make a huge impact on the lives and faith of people where you live.
A must read!!
As someone who has been running Alpha in Catholic Parishes since 1999, I personally have seen so many lives and Parishes transformed by Alpha - Please #TryAlpha in your Parish!
Thank you Ron and Fr James for sharing your wisdom.

We (my parish) have celebrated successes in our 3 seasons of Alpha, but we are also facing numerous challenges. I feel deeply inspired by this message and much better equipped to help our team begin to work through those challenges. I can't wait to begin that conversation!!
If you care about bringing the message of Christ's Love to others, this book will inspire you and show you a practical (very practical) path. Share it with your pastor, your parish leaders, your ministry leaders, your congregation. It's a team effort without a doubt!
