Adventist Single Adult Ministries (ASAM) Chesapeake Conference Chapter is led by laypeople under Family Ministries of the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Our goal is to support and nurture relationships among single adults and with other members of the church family. There are currently about 300 singles and alumni ages 35 and up on our mailing list.
ASAM is not a dating service, but, rather, a ministry of fellowship that offers encouragement and fellowship to single adults, whether never married, divorced, or widowed. ASAM Chesapeake Conference chapter provides a relaxed environment in which to interact and become familiar with other Christian singles for the enjoyment of fellowship, dialog, wholesome interaction, Bible study, worship, travel, and enjoying God’s many gifts.
At creation, God declared that “it is not good that the man should be alone.” It is in the context of relationships that we grow and develop and gain a sense of who we are and of our place in the world. Sin is what lies behind human brokenness and the breakdown of all relationships. The Gospel is God’s program to heal broken relationships. The aim of ASAM’s strong spiritual emphasis is to help facilitate the healing of hearts that have experienced the pain of divorce, separation, or death of a spouse and to provide fellowship for all singles including those never married.
ASAM is a fellowship of committed single adult Christians who have been transformed by the saving grace of Jesus Christ and filled with desire to share His love with others while drawing ever closer in our relationship with our Heavenly Father. We invite you to join us in Christian fellowship.
