For many years, I directed the single adult ministry at my church. I believe that singles are often an untapped resource. They are often deeply committed to Christ, and they have spiritual gifts which God intends them to use. However, sometimes the church does not make room for them. All of the church programs are geared to couples and singles feel left out.
If you would like to start a ‘singles ministry’ in your church, may I suggest a resource? The Five Love Languages: Singles Edition is designed to help singles understand their relationship with parents, siblings, co-workers, and dating partners. Applying the love languages to all of these relationships makes the single a vehicle of God’s love.
