Rebekah is a mom of 3 and wife of ‘going on 18 years’, who was struck with a desire to serve Christian singles in her church when she saw how often they were serving others in the church and as many opened up to her about the challenges of dating in our rapidly changing culture.
She observed how hard it can be to find other Christian singles once one is post college and/or post ‘young adults’. Many great singles are spread out thinly across multiple churches and there are few mechanisms to help them connect.
So in 2014, in St Louis, MO, Rebekah began a ministry for Christian singles and brought it to Boston in December 2019. Here, it began as in-person events that quickly moved to online weekly calls with Christian singles throughout the Greater Boston Area once Covid hit.
Since then, there have been multiple online Christian speed dating events, outdoor in-person events, teachings, coaching, new friendships, relationships, and one couple was married in February 2021! In addition, from her 2.5 year ministry in St Louis, 4 couples thanked the ministry for the positive key role in played their becoming married.
Rebekah is passionate about helping couples begin their marriages on a strong foundation. She has led marriage classes in St. Louis and currently serves alongside her husband on the marriage mentoring team at their home church, Highrock in Arlington.
Rebekah serves as a part-time volunteer while raising her kids. Her goal is to create a casual uplifting space for Christian singles to form friendships and relationships that lead to marriage.
Rebekah also offers a number of free videos on her website such as: 'Successfully Shy' https://singlesocials.com/dating-tips-for-men, Online Dating Tips' https://singlesocials.com/online-dating-tips and a 'Brief Overview of Steps Churches Can Take to Serve Singles' https://singlesocials.com/for-church-leaders .
Rebekah loves dancing (from ballroom to hip-hop) and eating meals she does not have to cook (especially foods from around the world!) When she is caught cooking, it's often Cajun Gumbo or pecan sweet-dough pies (her family's recipe..:).
Her husband is a geneticist and Rebekah worked as a CPA in corporate auditing before choosing to raise her children full-time and support this ministry.
Whether you are a church leader seeking to learn new ways to serve the singles of your church or you are a single looking to get involved in this ministry - welcome! I hope this ministry can serve you!
Have fun. Fall in love. Make the world a better place!
