When by Single Parent Director, Holly Crain
I desperately wanted someone to throw a life preserver because I very much felt I needed to be rescued in those moments. So many days were difficult. But, the most difficult days were when loneliness had layered itself over the troubles. There were many reasons it would happen; sometimes it was my own doing of isolating from others, periodically it was comparing my life to others, and sometimes it was simply the troubles of everyday life hitting the overload button. But whatever the reason, I would again find myself sitting in the oppressiveness of loneliness. Read More

Spiritual Warfare by Michelle Eigemann
Spiritual warfare isn’t always easy to spot. It starts with a single seed being planted in the soil of your mind. After the seed is planted Satan sits back, puts his feet up, and watches as we water what will soon become bitterness, un-forgiveness, or in my case an identity crisis. Read More

What Have Pastors/Leaders Seen Change in Singles Ministry?
Q: What have been some of the things you have seen change for good, and what have you seen change for the bad?
A: There are not as many churches that have a minister designated to minister to Singles. They have absorbed the Singles Ministry into the adult ministry. Therefore, many churches don’t minister to Singles as effectively as they would if they had a staff member assigned to that group. However, I see more and more churches recognizing and speaking about Singles from the pulpit more than I did when I first began working as a Singles pastor. Read More

Ministry is Messy by Kris Swiatocho
A friend recently reminded me of something that I have often said: “Ministry can be very messy because the ministry has people in it.” My good friend and advisor, Pastor Freddy Johnson, used to say, “Kris, I would like to find a pastor position without having to deal with people...so that it would be...well...easy!” When he would say this, we would laugh because that position doesn't exist. If you are going to do any kind of work where people are involved, it will be challenging. Read More
Providing Shelter, Food and Clothes to the Ukraines Through a Single Adult

How to Handle Flirtation
Question: At my church, there's this guy that I like. It's been two years now, and I really don't know what to do. Everyone around us says that he treats me differently than all the other girls, and it seems that way to me as well. I know that he knows that I like him, and he has for quite a while. Read More
In God, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? Psalm 56:4
“Jesus was a single adult and so are over 50% of the adults in the U.S. today. This is a population segment that calls for special attention and ministry, but has often gone unnoticed by the church. Kris Swiatocho has dedicated her life to reaching single adults for Christ and building them into multiplying disciples of Christ. She is a great communicator and organizer of singles ministry. I commend her to any church or group who is seeking to reach the many singles in our culture today.”
—Dr. Steve Harris, Strategy Coordinator for the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina.
