My hope and prayer is that by having and sharing these conversations, men and women in leadership will realize that the 25-plus singles are truly a neglected demographic within the Church—and then do something about it.
It’s time to make some noise, approach our leaders and do our part to build bridges and opportunities for singles to connect.
They’ve been told the lie that a “woman of God” lets the man initiate, pursue and make things happen.
This leaves women feeling powerless—as though they have no control in their relationship status and no right to take initiative themselves.
Too many churches are not offering a way for their singles to meet—leaving them to fend for themselves with things like social media, online dating and everything in between in an attempt to meet.
