In Uncategorized by Debra Fileta

Are you interested in hosting a True Love Dates Singles Gathering at your Church, College, or Community?

What? A True Love Dates Event, is a seminar aimed at gathering singles together to promote learning, connecting, encouraging and teaching about healthy relationships. Singles of all ages and stages are welcome to attend this event! A True Love Dates Seminar consists of one hour of teaching, one hour of live Q&A, as well as a time for meet & greet. Plan to set aside 2-3 hours per event.

Who? Debra Fileta is a licensed professional counselor, author of True Love Dates, and national speaker specializing in relationship issues. She travels all across the country promoting the message that healthy people make healthy relationships. Her blog,, reaches millions of singles every year and is a leading voice in the Christian community paving the way for important conversations about all things love, sex, dating and marriage.

She’s partnered with ministries such as Focus on the Family, Saddleback Church, and numerous churches, conferences, and colleges across the country because she believes that investing in the singles of today will enrich the marriages of tomorrow.

“In response to the overwhelming needs of Singles at Saddleback Church, I brought in Debra to help. BEST DECISION of the year!! Her True Love Dates seminar was exactly what our Singles needed! With a loving and skillful approach, she educated us on God’s Way of healthy dating, equipped us with loads of practical advice, and encouraged us with a hope-filled message. We can’t wait to have her back!”— Pastor Chris Reed, 20s/30s/Singles Pastor, Saddleback Church, CA

“Rarely do we hear from someone who not only is a top expert in her field, but also has an unusually winsome way of engaging her audience with relevance, biblical wisdom and practical advice. Debra Fileta’s straight-forward, frank talk cut through the white noise of life on a college campus to address real issues in our students lives, and they loved it!  We are already planning her return visit to campus next year.” – Chris Grace, Ph.D, Professor of Psychology, Founding Director of Biola University Center for Marriage and Relationships

Below are a few of the many churches and colleges that have partnered with her to host a True Love Dates Event.

Why? The singles demographic is the LARGEST it’s ever been. Singles report feeling lonely, neglected and overlooked within the body of Christ. It’s time for our church communities to tap into the importance of reaching singles by investing in them and equipping them to be all that God has called them to be. At, we firmly believe that if we invest in the health of our singles today, we’ll have less of a need for marriage ministry tomorrow. A True Love Dates Event is also a great opportunity to launch your singles into “small groups” and keep them connected to each other and the church after an event. Debra offers a free 4 week small group curriculum (leader and participant guide) that compliments the seminar for those who are interested in taking advantage of the opportunity to form small groups.
