Started on September 1st, 2012, Single Sisters in University is an online ministry conceived for born-again Christian ladies who happen to be single in university. Christian ladies who ‘happen’ to be single means that their identity is not found in their marital status but in Christ Jesus.
Why Single? Single ladies in university face challenges somewhat different than married or engaged women. They have to deal with loneliness, peer pressure, and impatience; many, as a result, engage in sexual immorality. Thus, there’s an urgent need to encourage sisters to stay pure.
Why Ladies? SSU could have as well been conceived for brothers in Christ, however, the focus has been placed on sisters to provide apt assistance.
Why University? University offers freedom like you’ve never experienced it before. You live away from family, nobody’s monitoring your moves, and you become master of your life. University challenges and pressures compared to other areas of life are greater: Drugs, cheating, alcohol, homesickness, fornication, exposure to various religions or cult groups, debt/bankruptcy, burnout, anxiety, etc. That’s when your faith is really put to the test. Consequently, it is crucial for sisters to walk victoriously throughout their academic journey.
To build up ladies in their walk with Jesus Christ in the areas of singleness, faith, and campus life.
To raise a generation of Spirit-filled ladies that say no to ungodliness and worldly passions, and live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives throughout their university journey – Titus 2:12
