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.
If we start one, I hear it will end up being a meat market.
I love to always answer this question and say, “Yes, it sure will, they can meet Jesus.” Churches have a huge fear that their singles ministry will end up being focused only on finding a mate.
Well this is because you either are not defining singles correctly or simply have not looked at your membership demographics (or the demographics of your area).
In most large cities in the US, single adults are out numbering the married’s.
You can also call me at 919.434.3611 for help or attend one of my leadership retreats/conferences geared toward pastors, staff and leaders.However, training a lay leader to be under an existing pastor does not.Most single adults have a way to pay for the things they might need.2) Contact your town/city and find out the demographics of those living within a 5 mile radius.Once you find out this information, it will help you in the direction of how to reach them.
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.
