Dating sites for preachers

Well this is because you either are not defining singles correctly or simply have not looked at your membership demographics (or the demographics of your area).In most large cities in the US, single adults are out numbering the married’s.I know this might be a shock to you considering the churches numbers do not reflect this.

Staring a single adult ministry is easy, it’s keeping it going that is tough.

Because single adults are always on the move (whether getting married, moving into other parts of the Church or simply moving), the ministry can start off strong and begin to waiver.

While there are several large churches that have a singles pastor or director and are doing a great job in reaching and growing single adults, most churches do not.

Most churches give various excuses such as: We don’t have any single adults.

Single adults range from the 18 year old that still lives at home to the 29 year old single parent who has never been married to the divorced dad with grown kids to the 58 never married now taking care of their mom to the 68 widower who lives alone. 1) Look at your existing membership/attendance rolls and see who is not married.

It’s not that you don’t have single adults in your church or community; it’s how to reach them. Categorize by age, past marital status, if they have kids that live at home or grown, etc.

Please know I believe singles ministry is simply one way to bring singles into your church.

The goal with all ministry is reach people for Christ, help grow them so they will in turn reach and grow others (single or married).

If we start one, I hear it will end up being a meat market.
