The Vessels of Honor Singles' Ministry is an active department and ministry of ICGC, committed to mobilizing all “Singles” of ICGC behind God's vision for the church, as given by God to the Pastor. The Singles' Ministry is committed to a Holy, Honorable and Victorious lifestyle and walk, consistent with their name “Vessels of Honor.” (2ndTimothy2:20-21/1stThessalonians4:3-7). This ministry will embrace all singles, regardless of status or background: Single parents, the unwed, divorced, separated, abandoned, widowed etc.
Between the onset of adolescence and marriage, every person, man or woman, goes through issues having to do with singleness.
How does a single person handle the weekends, being alone?
How does he/she handle a dating partner or relationship?
How does he/she distinguish between partners who are just curious from those who are really serious, or a short-term relationship from a long-term one?
What about the issue of sex? Why say no when your entire body is screaming ‘Yes’?
How does a single parent (mom or dad) juggle the regular demands of life: Work, Children, Church, Recreation, Emergencies etc.
These, among others, are some of the issues the contemporary Christian Single is faced with, issues which often call on him or her to make serious, and sometimes difficult choices and decisions.
ICGC believes that contrary to society's often stereotypical views concerning singles, (single parents, those separated, divorced, deserted/abandoned, widowed, never married) 'singleness' can be a meaningful, fulfilling, fruitful and victorious phase of a person's life. It is to support singles in this quest for meaning, wholeness, victory and fruitfulness, that the Vessels of Honor Singles Ministry is formed.
