Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Guide for Getting Started  Apr 29, 2009
I read this book as I was interviewing to take the position that I now have as a full time singles minister. It is an intimidating task to build a ministry from the ground up, but Dennis Franck's wisdom and experience made it much less so. Franck outlines the different life situations that are represented by people in a singles ministry, some useful methods in meeting the spiritual needs of those people, and some mistakes to avoid.

If I were going to find any weakness in the book it would be that it is not as focused as I wish it were on the Scriptural truths behind the methods. It also encourages singles leaders to teach topically, whereas my personal teaching philosophy is more on the biblical/expository end of the spectrum.

Given those issues, this is still a great book. I got to spend some time with the author at a conference not long ago, and I could tell that what he wrote flowed out of his genuine heart for singles and not out of a desire just to write a book. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who, like me, is getting started in singles ministry and looking for wisdom to make it effective.
 
Great guide for the pastor/preacher  Jan 16, 2009
I started a Single Adults ministry in our church. This book was one that I used during my research before starting the group. Excellent topic for today's changing world.
