Get others to help you to invite
One of the questions I get asked on a regular basis. Is how do you invite someone to Alpha? Jesus was great at asking questions. How about trying an indirect question. Sometimes if we ask a direct question a defence mechanism kicks in. So why not try the following? Listen I am really into the Alpha Course. Do you happen to know anyone who would be interested in going on an Alpha Course? Asking another person to help you invite others opens up their friends and relatives to an invitation. But it also opens up the person you have asked to an invitation as well.
