The Single Vision Connection

Single Vision  is the first  Member Care  program designed to precisely  address the
needs of single adults who serve cross-culturally.
 The renewal retreat has been in
existence for 15  years with  annual programs held in  Europe and  Asia.   Single
Vision was formed to minister to all mission organizations with the focus to serve

experience as single adults and speak from personal experience of what it means
to thrive and maintain balance in a constant changing atmosphere abroad as

Christian workers.
