Singleness is a God-given gift where you have the time and resources to serve Christ and the church – but we don’t always treat single men that way. Blaque and Prince discuss the stigmas that surround being single in a Christian community. Judgement and misunderstanding comes from all quarters: married people, courting couples and other singles.

I know that I need to know that before I get into a relationship. So that even when I get into a relationship I can tell my counterpart, “listen. This is what God has called me to do in the kingdom, and to the rest of the world.” And then also aligning those two visions.”
