10. Sponsor, invite, and validate their ministry.
The road to ministry for women is often not straight, but the path for single women is not only curvy but steep and rocky. Because singles are often seen as less mature and treated as teenagers, many overlook their leadership potential. Single women in ministry can greatly benefit from other leaders helping to clear the way for them, so invite a single woman to teach to your ministry, validate her gifts publically, or sponsor her when your church is looking to fill key ministry roles. Your word of recommendation might be the ticket to having other leaders see her gifts, talents, and skills.
