The twenty-first century North American church is challenged to present the gospel to diverse post-modern family structures. Ministry language, services, times, and leadership expectations based in the twentieth century can be perceived to be exclusionary, unaccommodating, and irrelevant. Single-parent families are a significant societal element that requires the formulation of sensitive outreach. This doctoral project will develop a strategy for Northkirk Presbyterian Church to mobilize a mission group that identifies and addresses the needs and suffering of single-parent neighbors. By entering their lives, the Church can incarnate the care of Jesus Christ and invite them to also follow Jesus.
