4 Reasons for Single Adult & Single-Parent Family Ministries
1) Demographics demonstrate the need. http://singles.ag.org/interconnect
Society has changed. The numbers are staggering and speak for themselves. 103 million adults over the age of 18 are now unmarried, single by chance, change, choice, or someone else’s choice. Unmarried households now equal married households.
2) Their lives motivate the need.
I don't feel like I'm just waiting to be married anymore. Single Adult Ministry has provided a circle of friends and activities. I have others I can relate to who are being stretched and grown by God in the same ways I am." -- Lisa Stevko - Castro Valley, CA
3) Their ministry potential validates the need.
Unmarried adults have time, money, talent, and creativity to share with the Church and do not have to obtain approval from a spouse to give or use them. They can begin tithing or spend their money to go on a missions trip without checking with a spouse.
4) Jesus’ life authenticates the need.
Jesus was the greatest single adult who ever lived! He provides the supreme example of what a single adult, wholly dedicated to the Father, can accomplish. Pattern your life after Him.
