Strive Young Adults is Woodvale Pentecostal Church's ministry for university and college age students in the Ottawa area. We meet every week on Thursday nights either at Woodvale or off-site.







Encounter Night

Once a month we gather upstairs in our café for a time of unplugged worship, conversation and prayer.  Our encounter nights are designed to maximize on interaction, and although there is a "sermon" element, it is experienced interactively with questions and answers happening on both sides of the conversation.  The evening officially starts at 7:30pm, but we open the cafe for complimentary specialty coffee/tea at 6:30pm.  You won't want to miss these interactive nights! 


We want to tailor these encounter nights to the "who, what, where, when, why, and how" questions that you might have in your faith journey, so please let us know what questions you would like us to answer by asking a question!

Connect Group

Connect groups at Strive serve two purposes - they allow us to grow deeper in our relationship with God by gaining a deeper understanding of His word while also bringing us closer together as a group by building strong friendships. 

Currently our Connect Groups are doing: 

  • Chris' and Taylor's Connect Group - "Guardrails"
  • Corey's Connect Group - "A New Humanity" (on the Book of Ephesians)
  • Olivia's Connect Group - Selected questions from her Connect Group

Worship Nights

At Strive we desire to create an intimate worship atmosphere. In doing so , we have built a small team and worship acoustically. 

Come worship with us through song every encounter night.

Event Nights

Jesus took time to have fun with His disciples, so we take time to have fun with our Strive Young Adults Family too!

We strive to put together exciting events, either as a group or in our connect groups, so we can have fun in fellowship with your Strive Young Adults Family
