Large reaching single adults

Congregations who overlook the presence of single adults in their midst are missing an opportunity to engage a significant population. But “one size” programming does not “fit all”. According to veteran singles minister, Dennis Franck, being single encompasses any number of life situations, and the church needs to understand this reality before launching into any kind of singles ministry. This guide for congregational leaders helps them discern the single persons in their circle of care and concern. It provides biblical insights and practical tools for developing effective ministry “to, for, and through” single adults of all stripes. Of particular concern for Franck is leadership development, which he considers a key to building strong ministries. The appendix includes a helpful array of resources including organizations, websites, periodicals, books and denominational offices.
