Meet Christian Singles from all over the Boston area at 1) in-person dinners or 2) facilitated video calls from the convenience of your home.
“I prefer ‘in-person events”, says Rebekah who founded www.SingleSocials.com in St. Louis in 2014, “but with the 2020 hectic lifestyle of so many in Boston, the parking, and the traffic, I wanted to offer video conferencing introductions as well.”
The ministry www.SingleSocials.com started when Rebekah was working alongside Christian singles at her church and watching them care so well for the body of Christ and hearing them talk about how hard it was to be able to meet and date other Christians. Her passion to help today is the same as it was then but she also has the knowledge she has gained since 2014.
Rebekah is a Boston area mom of three awesome kids and is happily married to her husband of 18 years who shares her passion to help others.
