Are you a liability? Are you incomplete in your ‘season of singleness’?

What are the micro-biases that exist for singles in ministry? And how do we need to change?

Whether you’re single in ministry, leading someone who’s single in ministry or know someone who’s single ministry… you want to listen and share this conversation with Ashley Bohinc and Kellen Moore.
