Am I Single?
Defining the college age student is impossible. The average age of a college student is around 28 while most people who start college never finish. But, we acknowledge there is a difference for the 18-22 year old adult and those who are single in this age range. We define these singles as collegiate. Young adults are still defining themselves as adults and statistically many will find themselves single into their early 20’s. Our focus at Table For One is for everyone to know they are Complete in Christ. This is no difference for collegiate. You are facing the early glimpses of being an adult. We want you to know that regardless of your relationship status, you are Complete in Christ.

Through my many years of singles ministry and working with pastors, one phrase is repeated often — “single for a reason”. It is the idea that singles are composed of misfits and odd ducks that are stranger than… married people. Next time you hear this phrase, here are some possible responses: We’re all messed […]
Fear is an interesting word. Its use invokes emotion from all who have known its grip. The sensation of helplessness is all too often the motivator behind fear. After a horror movie, fear comes from thinking about not being able to control things like you saw on the screen from happening to you as you […]
