Vinejuice subscriber, Keshia Johnson, was one of the lucky competition winners to win a ticket to attend the Starbright Singles seminar on the 12th of October. See what she said about it below:
“I was one of the many who attended the Singles Seminar held by StarBright Seminars in conjunction with Salford based international church, Victory Outreach. As I arrived I didn’t quite know what to expect but it wasn’t long before I relaxed as the first speaker, Pastor Paul from Victory Outreach began to discuss the advantages of being single and the importance of preparing for partnership. He was followed by another lady who gave her testimony and spoke on ‘Timing’.
The Singles Seminar was held in Cafe Logos, Salford. I found the venue to be very nice, clean and contemporary with a relaxed atmosphere. I would definitely be happy to attend an event held there again.
Overall, the seminars were very informative but were delivered in a digestible manner. There were also practical sessions led by the event organiser, Dorike, with fun exercises on the do’s’ and don’ts of dating. The reassuring aspect of the seminar was the strong link back to the word of God through a session on how vital it is for us to remain focused on developing and enhancing our relationship with Jesus. It was also refreshing to have speakers really share their experience in a way that made it easy for me to relate to them. I felt that I had been ministered too and challenged to re-evaluate my life.
The main lesson I took away at the end of the seminar was that life doesn’t only begin to get interesting with marriage. My view on being single was transformed as I realised that everyone must go through this chapter in life. However, how we go through it determines a lot! Are we wasting our precious time or enjoying it doing the things we dream of? My biggest fear of releasing my child into the care of another was also dealt with during the seminar.
In my opinion, there was a good turn out to the event and it was great to see people from different backgrounds, churches and varying age groups come together and discuss honestly and openly.
If you are single I would really encourage you to go to the next event taking place on 15th November ’13 at Victory Outreach, it really will challenge you.
