Although 44 percent of all adults are unmarried, most churches are focused on marriage and families--and so miss many opportunities to reach out as well as to benefit from all that singles can offer to the church. Based on his over thirty-four years of experience, Dennis Franck offers church leaders guidance on all aspects of this often-overlooked ministry, including:
