Sovereign Grace Singles is sgs_thumbnail.pngthe only singles website for conservative Reformed singles, and they need your help.  They need to gain more members in order to remain viable.  Currently there are 700 members on the site, from the PCA, OPC, URC, and other conservative Reformed denominations.  These denominations are the only "pond" in which I'd recommend our singles to fish.

There are a lot of singles out there who don't know about Sovereign Grace Singles who should, and would benefit from being members of the site.  I'm putting together an analysis of the numbers of members of conservative Reformed denominations here, and if you would like to help in any of the following ways, please contact Tim Black.

Ways you can help

  • Serve as a country expert in identifying which denominations are conservative in each country listed in our analysis.
  • Distribute SGS fliers at your church or through the channels of your denomination, presbytery, classis, singles organizations (think RUF!) or mission agencies.

Country Experts

Rev. J. Stafford Carson - Ireland
Dr. Henry Krabbendam - Netherlands, South Africa, Uganda
Rev. Philip Tachin - Nigeria

Results of the analysis

According to our current estimates, there are at least 385,000 conservative Reformed church members worldwide.  We could potentially bring in 1,926 total members from the US, 8,618 worldwide in English-speaking countries, and 18,709 in all languages.  This could result in many marriages; it could also result in many side-effects and spin-off projects that would further the interdenominational unity and cooperation of the Reformed community worldwide.

Global expansion project

Given this analysis, we hope to pursue the following goals to expand the reach of SGS:

  1. Aim SGS at other English-speaking countries.  Focus on countries containing the greatest numbers of conservative Reformed members:  Canada, UK, Australia, India, New Zealand, Nigeria, Zambia, Zimbabwe.  Identify conservative denominations and use contact info from Bauswein & Vischer's The Reformed Family Worldwide to contact them.  Ask them to email SGS to receive an email they can forward throughout their denomination if they wish.
  2. Provide SGS site in multiple languages.  Install new software that’s already translated.  Focus on: Germany, Indonesia, South Korea, Netherlands, Philippines, Switzerland.
  3. Develop & use new promotional materials & Internet promotion tools/means recommended by a web marketing agency.
  4. Identify & utilize new avenues to promote SGS.  Use Always Reformed’s connections in denominations & schools.
    1. Colleges & seminaries - internal student newsletters like WTS’s “Brute Facts”
    2. RUF ministers
    3. Missionaries
    4. Singles organizations
    5. Presbyteries

We are pleased to announce the release of PresbyterySite 0.0.9!  This is primarily a bugfix release.

One bugfix resulted in faster page loads--PresbyterySite's use of the Scriptaculous/Prototype JavaScript framework/library conflicted with RocketTheme's Versatility III template's use of the Mootools JavaScript framework/library, so PresbyterySite now uses Mootools for fading status messages in and out.  Mootools is compressed, so results in significantly faster page loads.
