DR. PJ DUNN
Singles Conferences Focused on Life Change
We are seeking church partnerships in 2023 across the country to host Christian singles conferences. These single adult conferences or singles retreats are discussions for single adults of all ages and backgrounds. From these catalytic gatherings, we encourage small group communities to be formed using our 6-week single adult curriculum, Embrace the Table. We see 25%-40% of singles conference attendees join a small group after our events for the first time using our Embrace the Table 6 session study.
Dr. Dunn’s passion is to build a community for single adults through discipleship. He is a discipleship consultant with the Georgia Baptist Mission Board and is passionate about helping churches reach single adults. Singles need to know they are complete in Christ and Christ alone! In addition to single adult blogs, bible studies, and singles conferences, he has a select group of leaders for ongoing coaching to help their church be single adult-friendly. He is honored to speak at churches, venues, and pulpits all over the country and see churches be single-adult-friendly. The most rewarding part of ministry for him is to see life change and guide people toward being complete in Christ.
