You have to learn how to keep your ministry going by growing leaders, expecting turnover, and change. I need to just focus on the traditional families like mine.
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.
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.
My website has a ton of great resources to help you get started and keep going.
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.
2) Contact your town/city and find out the demographics of those living within a 5 mile radius.
Most single adults have a way to pay for the things they might need.You may find out you have a lot of single mom’s or widows.Depending on what you have the most of could determine whom you try and reach and how to minister to them.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).
