10 Essentials of Healthy Christian Relationships
10 Essentials for Christian Dating by Singles Pastor JIm Bouck
Live With A Single Purpose
Christian Single Adults face choices and temptations on a regular basis. Am I going to follow Christian principles and obey God’s Word or simply go with the flow and succumb to peer pressure? This chapter addresses men and women who have decided to “Follow Jesus” with their whole heart. It is for Christians who live their lives with the single purpose of pleasing and honoring Christ and integrating Biblical values into their entire life. Read More
Is Casual Sex Ever Ok for Christians?
I’m a 28-year-old single Christian woman. I've been a serious Christian who would never date unbelievers since age 22. But last year, I decided that maybe I should be more open, since I never had a serious relationship with a Christian man in these last 6 years. I decided to wait till marriage for intimacy. But Christian men rarely ask me out, and they never pursue and court me. Read More
How to Start Dating Again
A Single Mom's Mite
So this past Saturday, along with the normal experience, God would do something different. Later in the day I would receive a donation towards my ministry. I wasn't surprised at getting a donation as I live on partial support. But what I was surprised was the amount. Way beyond expectations. I quickly emailed the donor back, making sure they wanted to give me what they gave me. Perhaps they clicked an extra digit and didn't know it. But to my surprise, she wrote back and said, yes, she meant it. She then started telling me her story. I have copy and pasted below, with her permission. Read More
What the Single in the Pew Needs from You by Gina Delfonzo
According to recent Pew data, the number of married Americans is at its lowest point since at least 1920. In 2015, only half of Americans ages 18 and over were married, compared with 72 percent in 1960. Put another way: Singles are on the rise and beginning to outnumber marrieds. The church, however, doesn’t reflect those numbers. According to a recent Barna study, while more than half of Americans (54%) between the ages of 18 and 49 are single, only 23 percent of active churchgoers are single. “Your church should be filling up at least half of your pews with single people,” writes Joyce Chiu for Barna Trends. “So what will get them there?” Read More
Even the Church is Struggling with Porn Addiction
I just listened to an interview that the head of Trunews had with his son on the issue of porn. The statistics are shocking! 68% of men IN THE CHURCH and 50-54% of PASTORS are addicted to it, i.e. view it on a regular basis. Click here for the interview and website for a dvd series on overcoming the addiction by a renewing of the mind...as Paul says. It cannot be "just stopped"...as it actually does change the physical makeup of the brain. Please take time to listen and discuss with the head of the Men's Ministry. Read More

With The Extraordinary GOD" The book is a history of Family Life, but it is so much more than that! It's an inspiring story about a man who said "yes" to God! Read More

How to Overcome Fear as a Single Parent by Dawn Walker
Fear is the greatest thief of our life, and no stranger to us as single parents. It is the loudest voice that competes with God’s, the invisible enemy that keeps us trapped in defeating patterns and at the root of every sin we pick. Just look at how much of our lives is built around fear, and how many choices we make that are fear-driven. Read More
Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Romans 13:1 NIV
