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.
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.
Beside myself there are a ton of other great teachers, speakers, authors and pastors who are ready to help you as well.
You can also call me at 919.434.3611 for help or attend one of my leadership retreats/conferences geared toward pastors, staff and leaders.
Staring a single adult ministry is easy, it’s keeping it going that is tough.
I know it so much easier to just focus on what you know versus what you don’t know. I have never been married nor have children, yet I continue to have them cross my path as I lead singles. You build a team, a staff, and/or hire a pastor or director that does care and understands single adults. I realize hiring a pastor or director does cost money.” Church as a whole can easily be a place to only be fed and healed from a physical standpoint.But didn’t Jesus use these ways to minister so he could get to the person’s heart?And if they do find their spouse at your church, why would that be so horrible?The key to all of this is a solid foundation, structure, communication, building leaders and so on. You can start with my ministry, The Singles Network.
The same way it would be for any ministry in your church that may meet someone’s emotional and physical needs first. I lead the largest single adult leadership ministry in the country.
