You need to minister to singles!

Posted in Uncategorized on November 30, 2010 by xybatt

     After 10 years of singles ministry, I have new statistics to work with:

  • in 2000,  49% of US citizens over the age of 18 were SINGLE.
  • in 2010, 50.5% of US citizens ”   are SINGLE.

 

  • in 2000, 33% of babies were born to SINGLE mothers.
  • in 2010, 37% of babies  are born to SINGLE mothers.

 

  • in 2000, 1 in 3 fathers in FL pay their full child support each month.
  • in 2010, 30%

 

  • In 2000, one Church of Christ in FL had a paid SINGLES minister.
  • In 2010, ZERO!

one would think that we must be focusing on MARRIAGE ENRICHMENT! Unfortunately, it seems our divorce rate has also risen.

So, what is the solution?
