Event Details

Reach Single Adults in Your Community!

Nearly 40% of all local communities in America are now single.
Over 1 in 3 American families are single parent households. The average age of marriage for men is 29 and 27 for women. So we are asking one simple question:

What is your church doing to reach single adults?
Join us for our annual Single Focused conference to engage in conversation with leaders passionate to reach single adults and connect them to local churches. We are not asking your church to embrace a specific discipleship plan or ministry. Our Single Focused Conference wants you to reach singles in your context and be equipped with resources to do just that.
This three-day conference is targeted to pastors, ministry leaders, and students that want to be advocates for singles in their local churches.

Dr. Phillip Nation will be our main speaker with several breakout sessions focused on equipping leaders to reach single adults. Dr. Philip Nation is the Lead Pastor for First Baptist Church of Bradenton, Florida. He is also the Assistant Professor of Leadership and Biblical Studies for Houston Baptist University. Philip holds a Doctor of Ministry from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

    Dr. PJ Dunn

    President & CEO of Table for One Ministries

    On September 11, 2001, my life profoundly changed to serve the Lord. That was the first time I clearly saw death and fully comprehended that people around me who did not know the Lord would die and spend eternity apart from God. After years of leading singles ministries and seeing the growing single adult population in the United States, it became clear to me the Lord was calling me to focus on single adults. Table for One Ministries was founded. A ministry advocating for singles and helping local churches to reach single adults in their community. My heart is to build community for single adults through discipleship. I am honored to speak at events all over the country and see churches reach single adults and value them in their congregations. The most rewarding part of ministry for me is to see life change and guiding people towards being complete in Christ.

I spent 5 years of my life as a single parent of 3 small children. I understand the challenges that single parents face. Single parents are one of the areas most in need of assistance and ministry from the local church. 40% of all parents are single parents and 35% of all children in the U.S. live in single parent homes and the percentages go much higher in depending upon ethnicity. This represents 24.5 million children! Single parents and their children need the church to be the church! We need effective ministry models to reach and help this group of parents and their children.
