On Friday, I spent part of the day with participants in Texas Baptists’ annual Single Adult Conference in Georgetown. Leading up to the conference, some of them were participating in community projects — sorting clothes for a ministry and helping with a Habitat for Humanity project.
While there, Single Adult Ministry Specialist Keith Lowry shared some information I’d never heard before, namely that many Texas Baptist cities and towns are made up of more than 50 percent single adults.
Yet many churches don’t have single adult ministries and a good portion of those who do have small ministries. I asked Keith and some other folks what makes for a good single adult ministry and how a church can start one. That led to this story. What do you think? Why don’t many churches have strong outreaches to single adults?
