Dr. PJ Dunn
Minister, President, & Founder
We are seeking active church partnerships across the country to host evening dinner conferences. These events are 2-hour evening events with discussion and dinner for single adults of all ages. From these events, we encourage small group community to be formed or connect singles to existing groups. We see 25%-40% of attendees join a small group after our events for the first time using our Embrace the Table 6 session study. If you are interested in being a partner church, please email [email protected]
PJ’s heart is to build community for single adults through discipleship. He is honored to speak at events all over the country and see churches reach single adults and value them in their congregations. The most rewarding part of ministry for him is to see life change and guiding people towards being complete in Christ.
