What are the best places to find Christian singles?
When you look online you see that there are many websites for Christian single men and women trying to find love. If you’re a lady and you’re looking to find a man that truly loves Jesus, it seems sometimes that can be a challenge. However, we put our faith in our trust in the word of God, as he says in the word of God in Proverbs 35 and 6, it says trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding but in all of your ways acknowledge him he shall direct your path. That’s something that God has promised us today as his children. Do you have that belief in God and what he says to you from the word of God?
Sometimes what we do is that we look to what we don’t have, instead of looking at the things that we have. There’s a man one day complain that he didn’t have any shoes, he stopped complaining when he met a man with no feet. To me that this puts everything into perspective.
I’ve been doing some research about the best places to meet Christian singles.
While that might sound a little creepy considering I’m happily married, the reason is that I’ve been getting bombarded with questions from my single readers about this very subject.
“Where do we meet good, godly people these days?”
“It seems like there are no more good men/women in sight!”
“Can you give us some suggestions of places to meet Christian singles?”
While I’m no matchmaker (actually, who am I kidding, I totally am!! I’ve matched up a few happily married couples so far in my circle of friends, and I’m ready to take on whoever wants to be next!) I would venture to say that there are still a decent concentration of Christian singles hovering around.
I say this with confidence, because traveling across the country to speak has allowed me the opportunity to meet some of the most amazing singles! I know they’re out there!
10 Places To Meet Christian Singles
Before you roll your eyes at this obvious one, take some time to really think through it. People who are regularly attending church week-in and week-out are going to show up in your life time and time again. I think the problem we face isn’t that our churches don’t have enough singles, it’s that our singles don’t have enough of a clue (ouch, I said it!!!!). But I don’t blame them, because we’ve been sort of brain-washed into avoiding dating and staying in the friends-for-life-grey-zone for far too long. It’s time to move up and move out. So why not take a chance this weekend and ask someone out for coffee? (But make sure you read TLD first! 😉 ) It’s a great start for places to meet Christian singles.
#2 Small Group
I just love small groups. Some of my nearest and dearest friendships have come out of these intimate settings of people, sharing God, life, and usually food (bonus!). It will require you to get vulnerable, but why not take a step and get involved into a smaller group? Most churches have plenty of groups of different topics, interests, age groups and locations. So find a group that matches your style, and jump in.
#3 Serving in Ministry
There’s no better place to meet Christian singles than right out there on the battlefield of service. Serving requires sacrifice, and that’s why less than 10% of people in church actually commit to serving. But from what I know of these 10%, they are people who are eager to give of their time, their energy, and their love for the glory of God. I don’t know about you, but those are the exact kind of people that I want to be around- and more so, the type of person I want to become.
This top 10 list is not inclusive. You look at the first one that talks about meeting other singles in church. While this is good, don’t limit yourself to meeting your potential mate in church. It’s important that your future mate have a deeper relationship with God. It says in the word of God, in Matthew 6 – 33, but seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you. If God is not first in your future mates life and even your own life, we truly cannot be successful, and the things that God has for us.
How To Find A Christian Man To Marry
As a Christian single lady who loves Jesus, you may ask yourself how do you find a Christian man to marry? For starters, you need to ask God to lead you to guide you. One of the things that we as believers must do is to ask God to give us his favor. The Bible also says that the man’s ways please the Lord, that he’ll even make his enemies to be at peace with you. One of the things I want to ask you today is our you live in a peaceful life? Are you content where you are, without a mate.
What should I look for in a husband? This is no easy question to answer, yet it is an important one. The following list of what to look for in a husband is clearly selective and by no means exhaustive. But these factors make an excellent beginning to a checklist. While any group of people could brainstorm a number of desired qualities, here are the top six things women should look for in a potential husband.
- The man should be committed to growing in his relationship with Christ.
Some well-intentioned women enter marriage knowing the groom is not where he needs to be spiritually, but they intend to “take him on” as a discipleship project. Bad move. The intensity of a marriage relationship is challenging even for two spiritually mature people. It is far too great a challenge to learn to be a good husband and a good Christian simultaneously.
Women should not seek out husbands who merely have mastered “Bible trivia,” but should look for those who are serious about growing in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus (see 2 Peter 3:18). Does this mean that he should be more spiritually mature than she is? Ideally, yes. But if he isn’t, prior to the marriage he should seek out a male mentor to help him prepare to fulfill the God-given role of husband and spiritual leader.
- A husband should be an individual of obvious integrity.
Many years ago I was staying with a family when a young man came for a date with one of the daughters. While waiting for her, he sat confidently in the living room and talked with the mother. He boasted about how well he was doing in sales and explained how it was necessary to tell “little white lies” to customers. For example, to keep from losing business to the competition, he would promise delivery dates when he knew there was no possibility of meeting them. He seemed quite pleased with himself.
The girl was drawn to his good looks and eager for a relationship. They went out on the date, and eventually the two of them got married. Sadly, their decision was premature, and a messy divorce followed. The girl had known about the guy’s predilection for little untruths, but wasn’t concerned. In the interest of advancing the relationship, she figured she could get married first and work on her husband later. But she discovered that he was much more masterful at deceit than she had expected. The marriage crumbled around them.
No matter how some men try to justify their use of untruths, those lies should serve as warning signs to prospective brides. What makes someone think that if a person woul
As the article states that the man should have a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ in the heavenly father. How serious is your potential mate? How do they carry themselves around you and how do they treat their families. Are they serious about their job and are they dedicated to the job and authority.
Another question you have to ask yourself is, how much integrity do they have? Integrity and the definition I’ve always been taught is, doing the right thing when nobody is looking. That is true integrity. Then we have to be honest with ourselves how much integrity do we have? Do we strive to do the right thing in our relationships that were around?
How To Find A Godly Man After Divorce
If you are a divorced woman, you may have questions about whether you’re allowed to remarry. I will tell you today, we live under the grace of God and truly God does want you to move forward in your life. Even if the divorce was your fault, we still have the grace of God in our life and God wants us to reconnect with him. So I challenge you today, to number one forgive yourself and number two forgive those who lived in your wrong. The other thing you must realize that you have to go to root of the problem. Sometimes we react in ways that may not be godly, however, we can learn from our mistakes and know that God is faithful and he is just just to forgive us of our sins.
He says in the word of God that if we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Unrighteousness is simply missing the mark. Thank God for Jesus Christ and thing God that he sent his son Jesus to die for us, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
God Heals After Divorce
Finally, were going to close with this topic. God heals after divorce. There’s nothing impossible with God. With God all things are possible to him that believes. Your heart may be hurting much tonight, but I can tell you with an insurer to you God does heal after divorce. Divorce can be devastating. I also talk to people where divorce has been a sense of healing for them. Either way, none of us truly wanted divorce.
The pain of any divorce can seem excruciating, but an unexpected or unwanted breakup can devastate those left behind. Often these hurting women and men feel bewildered, numb, and lost. They wonder where was God when their wedding vows went up in flames.
When you’re doing the things of God, God will truly bless you today with the man or the woman of your dreams. The Bible says in Proverbs 18 – 22, he that finds a wife finds a good thing and attains favor of the Lord.
- dultery is evil, and God hates it.Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral(Heb. 13:4). When someone gets involved sexually with a person other than his or her spouse, it’s not an affair or fooling around – it’s adultery. Adultery cuts at the heart of what it means to be married. When a person is unfaithful, he or she violates a commitment designed to mirror the faithfulness of God Himself.
- Don’t blame God.No one is forced to commit adultery. No one can say they didn’t know it was wrong. God has given us the freedom to choose how we shall act. God cannot be blamed for the wicked choices of sinful people. The responsibility for sin belongs to the sinner alone.
- You must take responsibility for your own sin.Your sin is no one’s fault but your own – not your

- God can soothe the pain.Don’t ever entertain the thought that God abandoned you at the same time your spouse did. God never walks out on you, although you may walk away from Him. In John 4 a woman – scarred, bitter, angry, and confused by five ugly divorces – met Jesus. He caused her to confront her failures and offered her forgiveness and hope. She left Him with vibrant enthusiasm and healing for her ravaged soul.
- God can heal broken relationships.Divorce is ugly and always leaves painful wounds, but Jesus is an expert at bringing reconciliation to warring parties. Even when the marriage cannot be saved or restored, personal reconciliation can take place.
God grieves with you when an unfaithful spouse says, I just don’t love you anymore, and He longs to bring comfort and healing to your broken heart.
When we got married we were planning on spending the rest of our lives with the person. Sometimes we don’t think that we can live without a person. However, at some point we must move on with our life and know that God is tardiness on the new journey in God can place that person that he has for us in a mighty way for us. Sometimes, it that person will exist appear out of nowhere when you least expect it.
