We are very excited to have Rev. Barry Danylak, PhD join us as our 2023 retreat main speaker, sharing his biblical knowledge and life experience of singleness. Barry is an international speaker, author, and theologian with expertise on topics related to singleness, marriage, sexuality, and family in the biblical and modern world. As a never married man himself, Barry understands what it means to face the challenges of the modern world in his singleness, while seeking to be a faithful follower of Jesus. He offers deep understanding of singleness, and marriage in the biblical context from his research in the ancient world and New Testament (PhD, Cambridge). Barry served eight years as a community pastor of single adults in one of Canada’s largest evangelical churches in Calgary (Centre Street Church). Since 2020 he has served as the Executive Director for SEE Global, a ministry that equips church leaders on how to understand what the Bible teaches on singleness and marriage and how to minister effectively to both marrieds and singles in their care. Barry has authored several books on singleness including his most recent book: Singleness in God’s Redemptive Story, published in 2022 (Friesen Press). In his spare time, he loves travel, reading, hiking in the mountains and riding his motorcycle. Barry currently resides in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
