What Alpha Means To You:

  • Alpha means the beginning to me. If anything is worthy to behold, it has been held by an Alpha Man. Alpha means brotherhood that surpasses all other Koinonia (fellowship). It is the essence of what Brother Sidney P. Brown penned in his poem “House of Alpha”. 

 

GOODWILL is the monarch of this house
Men, unacquainted, enter, shake hands,
exchange greetings, and depart friends.
Cordiality exists among all who abide within.

I am the eminent expression of friendship.
Character and temperament change under my dominant power.
Lives, once touched by me become tuned,
and are thereafter, amiable, kindly, fraternal.
