We realize that “Young Adult” is a term open to interpretation, so when we say “18-25(ish)”, feel free to interpret the “ish”. This group is not a singles club – young adults from all walks of life are welcome to come together and encourage and challenge each other with discussion, prayer and friendship.

YA activities vary from week to week.  Study nights usually include some teaching time by a group leader, then discussion and prayer, and occasionally music.   Movie nights, seasonal or themed parties, retreats, service and leadership development opportunities also pop up throughout the year.

Ministry Leaders

  • Ryan Duford

    Director of Young Adult & Men's Ministries -

    Ryan graduated with a pastoral degree from Peace River Bible Institute, then pursued further education at Regent College in BC. After completing 3 out of 4 years at the coast, Ryan and his wife, Jen, moved back to the Peace region because they felt called to share the Gospel in Grande Prairie. Ryan is currently working on finishing his Regent training via correspondence, so he can stay “plugged in” in our community.
    Ryan loves learning and sharing knowledge with others both in sermon and small group styles. He is excited for the opportunity to grow with the Young Adults group and develop a relational Men’s ministry here at Church of Christ.
    Ryan and Jen describe their home as a bit of a “zoo”, with three room mates and two small dogs, but they love it that way!
