My name is David Butler, and I’ve been developing Christian singles resources for several decades. Thanks for dropping by and saying hi. By the way, it wasn’t our plan to get so involved with singles, but it’s just how the Lord arranged it. Ain’t it funny how God works?
Christian Singles Resources Hub
I started Oasis Singles from scratch in 2006 out of a deep care for singles and their unique needs. This website presently gets over 100,000 guests (and growing) per month. Thousands read our articles and listen to our singles church podcasts each week worldwide.
Whether you’re a single parent dating, a college student or a 40+ something grandparent, we want to remind you that Jesus deeply loves you wherever you are in your life. There is no burden too great that He cannot carry; no heartache so deep that He cannot heal.
Oh yeah, if you “just happened” onto this site and aren’t sure about God’s love for you, check this out before doing anything else. We’ll wait right here for you. We promise! 🙂
Our Mission and Purpose
Oasis Singles exists to minister to the emotional and spiritual needs of thousands of singles in the US, Canada, UK, Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and Australia by:
- Introducing singles to the love, forgiveness and eternal life that only comes through Jesus Christ
- Encouraging godly, satisfying relationships with the opposite sex
- Providing Christian dating service resources, dating tips, practical and relevant singles advice and articles
- Connecting singles with local Christian singles groups, coffee houses and church ministries for fellowship and spiritual renewal
- Allowing a forum where single Christians, ministers and counselors can share comments, singles articles,Christian podcasts, dating reviews, personal struggles and dating advice with others
More Personal Stuff
David surrendered his life to the Lord Jesus in 1978. Over the years he has served as a Youth Minister, College and Career Group Leader, Deacon, Elder, Small Groups Coordinator, Worship Team Leader, pre-marital counselor, Alpha Course Director of five courses and lead pastor and church planter of several churches, Oasis-Church-NJ.com and Rutgers.Church.
In 2018, David also started a Jesus4Students.org, a non profit geared toward helping church plants and ministries in university areas all over the country.
A professed match maker, he has performed many marriage ceremonies for couples. (David says: “It’s a very cool and holy experience!”)
Outside the church, David was employed through Family Court for 26 years where he’s worked as a Probation Officer, Parent Education Class Teacher, Crisis Intervention Hotline Worker and Mediator to single parents regarding parenting, custody, child support and other personal issues affecting singles.
David is also an entrepreneur. He is co-founder (with his sons) of TJB Web Media, a thriving Web design and SEO company. Part of the reason he created the business was to help church ministries, stay at home moms and small Christian businesses get inexpensive web hosting and web sites that reach targeted traffic.
Our Church Planting Vision
David attended Liberty Theological Seminary, in the MA track for Evangelism, Church Planting and Church Growth. His passion is reaching people for Jesus, and he feels the best way to do that is through church planting. Did you know that single adults are the most unchurched group of people in almost every country of the world?
In line with His vision to reach people for Jesus in person and via the internet, in Fall 2010, the Lord used David to launch Oasis Church from scratch. Today there are several locations, including Rutgers.Church, a collegiate church which focuses on the needs of singles and families with young children.
David’s extended vision is to help church planters start collegiate churches all over the country.
Here is David’s life verse:
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
In the future you might find some ads on Christian-Dating-Service-PLUS.com. Please understand that creating and updating an interactive singles website/ministry like this takes a lot of thought, time and money, and we may need to find some way to cover the expenses. Also, if the Lord provides a surplus, those monies will go directly into a ministry fund for our plants geared primarily toward Christian singles.
Want to find out more about our beliefs and/or our exciting vision for a church plant vision? Want to get involved in our NJ church plant in some way? We need all the help and prayers we can get, so feel free to send us a holler.
Finally, we really do hope you enjoy our site. Please consider helping other single Christians by sharing your thoughts, singles resources, comments or writing an article. What you think is really important to us. Oh yeah, and if you have any ideas on how we can improve this Christian Single resources dating site, please contact us.
Blessings to you!
