Singles and the church – a match made in heaven? Sounds kind of like being grilled steak at a vegetarian party.
It’s true that singles—the fastest growing household type in America—don’t fit in the church . . . at least, not in the family-focused church we know. For years, the church has worked hard to formulate ministries for singles and, without intending to, has substituted programs for relationships.
That’s not what the church is supposed to be. God has something else in mind for His church. This engaging book dares you to believe that things can, and should, be radically different between singles and the church. There is a way you can make the dream, the family, come to life.
“This candid and warm book is a very helpful diagnosis. It’s a courageous call for the church to love its singles . . . and for the singles to learn how to honor the church better and really be one with it.”
Senior Pastor of The Chapel, Akron and Green, Ohio
“Essential reading for singles looking for their place in the church and for church leaders wanting to welcome them.”
–Albert Y. Hsu
Author of Singles at the Crossroads
“It is refreshing to find a book that looks beyond dating or personal contentment and considers Christian stewardship of singleness and how it fits into God’s larger plan.”
–David K. “Kelly” Fath, Jr.
Singles Leader, Calvary Church, Fruitport, Michigan
