The establishment of a single adult identity poses a major challenge to each individual trekking the path between belonging to a family and marriage. Among the difficulties of singleness are loneliness, finding acceptance, and establishing one's separate adult identity. As the church seeks to reach the single adult, these needs must be considered. A balanced program consisting of fellowship, express, and edification is the ideal solution. Social interaction will facilitate the building of relationships and thereby help the single adult with his personal loneliness. Bible input will aid in building strong adult identities. Ministry opportunities are necessary for spiritual growth and developing a sense of personal belonging.
