About PYPA

Prairie Young People’s Association (PYPA) was established in 1928 as a youth conference consisting of the youth groups of Christian Churches and Churches of Christ in Western Canada and Northwestern USA, who desired fellowship and connection. PYPA has been an annual or semi-annual event historically organized by youth and young adults with Churches taking turns hosting the conference.
The purpose of PYPA is to provide a weekend of learning, fellowship and connection for youth groups and leaders.

PYPA is dedicated to providing a challenging, Christ-centered experience for young people and the youth leaders who give their time and open their hearts to mentor and disciple youth.

What does the weekend look like…
