New Single Ministry Helps
I am starting a new ministry for singles, I am looking for others with a similar heart to help guide me along. Perhaps even start their own.



Looking for others to prayerfully be supportive and learn as well as we build this exciting ministry, that is some much needed.

I'm single too and get kind of lonely sometimes and I'd like to chat with other singles. I was divorced over 20 yrs. ago when my husband left me for another woman. I have 3 grown children who all backslid and had a rocky childhood. I'm going to be moving in about 3 weeks since I can't afford to stay here and have to get my credit card debts paid so I'll just be staying in one room in a house. Marcia

Marcia, I will ad you to my prayer list. It will get better, and after a while you will see God makes things aright for those who love Him.

Email me with more details to see if it is the kind of ministry I should be involved in, and if you need someone who is handy with HTML, DHTML, and some Java on website creation.

Hi Mike,

I know that you started this ministry in 2002, however, I wanted to know if the ministry you did start the ministry and, if the answer is yes, where can I find this ministry? I would like to talk to some single people.

Thanks,

Robin

Mike, interested in knowing what caused you to want to start a singles ministry? Would that be ok to ask? When I was first divorced, and thru the urgings of friends...I joined a few(not all at once), and found it uncomfortable & awkward. I felt like we may as well have bright orange jumpsuits that say SINGLE in big, bold, black letters. Guys would gawk, women behaved competitively towards one another over the one or two "knights" in the group. One group had worship & Bible discussions on singleness topics while everyone sneaked peeks at the opposite sex. I liked the idea of having barbecues, and ranch outings, and beach trips, game nights, etc. But the idea of having worship & Bible study, sitting around in a circle facing one another with diverse "vibes" going on , I just preferred to go to the churches regular services.

I will tell you, one church started a coffee house night at a rented place, and I thought that was GREAT! It was sponsored & participated in by all the christian churches in the community, they took donations for the rent. When you walked in, there were game tables, sofas & recliners, a DJ playing hot, christian music, refreshments, people could display their art work, poetry readings, contests, and Karaoke. Alot of people showed up for this, and it was pleasant. It was well organized and everyone pitched in to clean up. It didn't feel like the awkwardness of "singles" sitting around in a circle facing each other, discussing things that had everyone yawning. It just felt like we were people, enjoying a night out with friends. If you played an instument, you could do a little performance. It was nice. And I saw more people talking with each other there, than I ever did at a backyard barbecue, or a Single's discussion. You might consider something like that. By the way...how is it going?

Mike,

I'm new to this board, but just saw your message! Way to go! A few things I've found out since I've started mine a year ago... Many singles have "committment issues"...Bad pun, but painfully true. Be constantly looking for future leaders... If this takes off, there are MANY directions a singles ministry can go...divorce recovery, boundaries subjects, widows/grief support, outdoor sports/activities, movie/book/dining groups, you get the hint. Be prepared for church members who have a negative view of singles groups (i.e. meet markets, messianic matchmaking, etc.) who think all singles ever think about is finding, tackling and forcing a commitment out of any member of opposite gender who claims faith AND has a pulse!
