U-turn by Single Parent Director, Holly Crain
When I walked into my new Life Bible Study it felt like everyone knew each other and that I was an outsider. I wondered how in the world they got to know each other so well. I wanted "in" but didn't know how. So I made a simple decision to show up each Sunday. Read More

WHO IS THE MARRIAGE PREPARATION COURSE FOR?

Not everyone singles ministry has to have a leader’s notebook to function but it does help. The more information you can develop on who you are as a ministry, your goals, expectations for your leaders and volunteers, events and future plans, etc. the better. If you go to work anywhere, you will get an employee handbook. Then why is ministry any differently? Read More
