Thoovaneesa- Single’s ministry. (Ministry for the ever unmarried persons)


“And he answered them, who are my mother and my brothers? And looking about at those who sat around him, he said here my mother and my brothers! For whoever does the will of God, he is my brother and sister and mother.”(Mk 3:33-35)

The singles are those who remain unmarried and be devoted to the Lord in purity. Being single one has a great opportunity to serve God and the best way to serve God is by serving others. By quoting the gospel of Mathew, the church document ‘You cat’ clearly speaks about those who are living as singles. It says that all are not called to married life rather those who are singles can also have life fulfillment. God shows them a particular way to live for the kingdom in their unmarried state. An unmarried person avoids sexual relations but he/she never gives up love. Such persons get enough and more time to serve the people of God than the married persons.

“For there are some eunuchs who were that way from birth and some who were made eunuchs by others and some who became eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of Heaven. The one who is able to accept this should accept it.”(Mt 19:12)

A person who lives as a ‘single’ suffers the pain of loneliness. They consider it as a lack and a lose but such persons who are not obliged to take care the partner or the family, can enjoy the freedom and self sufficiency with happiness. They get enough time to do meaningful and important things which a married person may not get.

Nehemiah missions through this ministry of singles, aims to utilize the charismas, talents and time of such persons for the establishment of the kingdom of God. For that purpose we gather those who are single, make them convinced about their call, try to remove their loneliness and bringing them to the main stream ministries of the church.
