Apostolic Singles

Though this is a "private web" site, some of our members have allowed us to publish their letters and photos to encourage the rest of you who are on  the "single journey".  Many others preferred to keep the matter private as you can understand. These letters are addressed to the previous caretaker of Apostolic Friends, Sis. Lynna Lundsford and myself.

Dear Apostolic Friends,

I just wanted to say thank you for your ministry. Because of Apostolic Singles I am married today. I met a handsome and brilliant man on AS 2 years ago. We were married on December 15, 2006. I would love to share some pics with you of our wedding if I could. God Bless,
Allison and Jesse B.

Words of Wisdom...

...Pray for God's will in your life, be patient, and have high standards when choosing a mate and DO NOT settle for anything less.

After Bible college and secular college I became worried that maybe I would never get married. You see in Apostolic circles single gals age 26 seem to have a stigma attached to them...or at least I thought so. BUT...I remembered the wise advice of one of my professors at IBC, Rev. David Norris, and encouraged myself not to settle but spend time becoming all that God wanted me to become. Honestly, I dedicated my time and energy to understanding myself before "I got myself married". I found out what I liked and disliked in a mate. I tied up loose ends with friends and family. I became a whole person for the first time in my life. Then...and ONLY at that point in my life could I involve someone else to share with me my life's adventure. I am so glad I waited until I was 28 to marry. It was God's perfect timing.

I recommend reading "Finding the Love of Your Life" by Neil Clark Warren, a Christian counselor and founder of Eharmony.com

God Bless you in your search,

Allison B.

Dear Apostolic Friends,

This is Gabe AKA=Holyghost93 and I have been meaning to write this thank you letter ever since Claudia AKA=Claudia7 got engaged last year. But now I am happy to report we recently were married and are very happy and thankful that God brought us together using your site.

Admittedly we were both very skeptical about using the internet to meet our soul mate. We also were both a little embarrassed about having to go to the internet, because both felt we did not have a problem attracting people to us. But we both realized we were not attracting what we wanted or what God wanted for us as Holyghost filled Apostolics. At first it was hard to tell people how we met, because we were sort of embarrassed to say, but God has dealt with our pride and we don't mind telling people.

I would like to say, for those still looking don't give up, Claudia was not the first person I met on Apostolic Friends, I met many great people before her and made some new friends. God then brought Claudia to me and it was a match made in Heaven! I have attached some photos too.

We can thank you enough for this site, it was the best investment I ever made!!!!!!!

Lord Bless,

Brother Gabe and Sister Claudia(Holyghost93 and Claudia7)

Greetings in Jesus Name!

Dear Apostolic Friends Admin,

Thank you for the wonderful media and beneficial services you’ve designed and provided to the Apostolic singles at home and abroad. Your ministry and tool that you’ve skillfully provided have been a very special blessing to many.

The intent of my email is to inform you of a great and wonderful work that God performed earlier this year. Words cannot express how delighted I am to share this most awesome blessing of the Lord with you and the members of Apostolic Friends. After much prayer, living in accordance to the will of God and seeking his continued will for our lives, we encountered a once in a lifetime heavenly introduction, which occurred thanks to Apostolic Friends. It been the instrument that God used to introduce and unite Debbie (Logi) and Mike (Mike0113) as dear friends and future husband and wife. We will be married on August 6, 2005.

Please also use this notification as a request to remove our accounts and profiles from the Apostolic Friends database and network. We’ve both enjoyed our experience and appreciate the useful features within the AF database. Thank you for your kindness.

God bless you all!

Dear Bro. Gary:
I would also like to add my thank you for AF! God Bless you and all those that join and are looking for Godly mates. I had prayed for God's Mate for me for 16 years. I paid for one month and met a wonderful Apostolic man in WV, Musicman, and we are getting married the end of July. Please remove our profiles from the Website.

Removing Profile


I'm writing to request that my profile be removed from the website.

I have greatly enjoyed being a part of this site and have been greatly blessed. I met a wonderful man from this site (jquillen38) and we plan to marry in Late August. We will send you our engagement picture sometime in the near future.

Thank your for all that you do for single apostolics. This site has been a blessing to me and many others I'm sure.

Thank You very much.

Thank you for providing a wonderful service for Apostolic singles. I was able to meet a wonderful young lady from Ohio and we are soon going to be engaged. You are a God send for lonely people. Your service was a blessing. I was single for a long time and now God has blessed me.
Please delete my profile: jquillen38
Thanks again and keep up the great work.

Dear Sis. Lynna,

Greetings in Jesus name.  I am writing to thank you for your wonderful ministry and to inform you that you can now remove two names from "Apostolic Friends".  Sis. Kim Pollard from Jacksonville, Fl. and Bro. Ken McDougal Jr. from Augusta, Ga.  We will be getting married on Sunday, Jan 21, 2001 at 2:00 pm. at the Church of Pentecost (Pastor-Rick Olson). We will be living in Jacksonville and attending the church there.  We are very excited about what The Lord has done and how He has orchestrated this union from the very beginning.  God opened every door and even when circumstances were changing all around us, The Lord intervened.  It  had been 19 years for me to find God's choice for a wife and over 10 years for Sis. Kim since her husband died.  Many times we both thought we'd be single for life, but God indeed had other plans. We want to encourage anyone out there who thinks God has forgotten about them to not worry or fret. God has not forgotten what we need and want. We had to wait a long time, but it was NOT our timing but God's timing that counts and we are very happy. God Bless you and this ministry--Bro. Ken McDougal, Jr.



Sis. Lynna,


I am so grateful to you for I have gotten to know you and work with you and I am with mixed feelings right now. I am happy for my new life but I am sad because I am leaving Apostolic Friends. I will indeed miss you and a lot of the people I got to meet over this mailing list. I will continue to pray for you and this singles ministry for I must give you some of the credit. God used you to bring me my future husband. I am so happy and we did a lot of praying to make sure this was of God before we leaped into anything. I really got a chance to know him and he did me. My pastor and my church are so happy for us Sister and support our union. I will forward you pictures of our wedding day as soon as possible. I love you sister and I hope you and I will keep in touch before we meet in Heaven! God bless!


P.S. Feel free to share our letter with Apostolic Friends!

Sis. Kim Pollard

At this time I would like to request that I be removed as a member of apostolic friends because I have recently gotten engaged and will be getting married Aug 4., 2001

Thank You, Timothy Allen


Dear Sister Lunsford,

I wish to cancel my membership because I am now married to an apostolic woman and and enjoyed your services. Thank you and God bless you. My name is Reverend Russell (Rusty) Loper.



I, too, need to have my membership removed.......I am engaged and will be getting married June 23, 2001....... I have enjoyed being a member and although I did not find my mate on this website, I did get reunited with some friends from my teenage years which has been a very pleasant experience.  I also met some really great people who will remain my friends.  Thanks for such a great website!

 Now Married


Hello in Jesus Name!
I am writing to let you know that hard work for God does not go in vain!  Once again, you get another announcement! (smile)  My name is Belinda Adams and I met Kenneth Van Owen as we were both members of Apostolic Friends and are now getting married in December of this year.


I just wanted to let you know and will send a picture as soon as possible and formally ask for removal from the website then. We both feel so much in the will of God and when that is certain, it's a wonderful feeling.  I have always been told that no matter how long it takes for God to send you the one He wants for you....when it happens in His way, it won't matter anymore how long it took to get you two together. That really is true!  I am so glad that I waited on Him and did not get impatient and take matters into my own hands and make a mistake!  This is too important of a decision to do that!  Thanks to everyone who works so hard on the website your effort may or may not be seen by all, but God sees it!

Belinda Adams (VanOwen)


Greetings in Jesus name.

I figured it was about time I wrote you and gave you the good news. (Other than my salvation that is)

Through Apostolic Friends I have met and married the most wonderful Pentecostal woman. Holly Edwards of Prentiss, Mississippi and I were married on August 4th 2000 at New Chapel UPC in Collins, Mississippi. We have decided to make New Chapel UPC our home church. And so far married life is wonderful.

We met through AF in February, and were married in August. Seems fast, but the Holy Ghost anointed both of us. I dearly love my new pastor Ron Bohde his family and the entire church body. I couldn't have asked for a better blessing.

Sister Lunsford, May the Lord Jesus richly bless and keep you all of your days with us.....

Clint W. Brooks


Sis. Lunsford,

I am requesting that you take my name off of the bio page list.  Belinda and I hit it off right away and are now planning our wedding for Dec. 16, 2000.  There is no doubt that God brought us together and we see His handiwork in our relationship.  I would like to thank you for having this web page for Apostolic singles, as God used it as a tool in my life.  Belinda is everything I could ask for, and it is awesome how the Lord worked all of this out.

Dear Sis. Lynna & Apostolic Friends:


We would like everyone to know We are getting MARRIED!!! :-) Thanks to Jesus and Apostolic Friends, we found each other. We began by talking on ICQ back in September. Ryan came to Louisiana for Thanksgiving, which was our first time meeting. Danielle went to Ohio for Christmas, which is when we became engaged.


In February, Ryan moved from Ohio to Louisiana, which is where we will live until the Lord leads us elsewhere. Our wedding is scheduled for this Saturday, June 3 @ First Pentecostal Church in Slidell, Louisiana.  We just want everyone to know, that it is possible to meet the person of your dreams, IF you "wait on the Lord"! Psalm 27:14k


God bless you all, as He has us!  In Jesus' Name,

Ryan Devoll & Danielle Kahl (Devoll)



  Mr. & Mrs. Devoll

Sister Lunsford;

How have you been? I hope all is well at your house. I thought I would let you know that you will soon be short two moderators at least for the first two weeks in June. Angela Smith and I are getting married June 3rd. I thought I would send the list an announcement of our wedding and a statement of our appreciation for this ministry when we return. We will be glad to continue moderating until you find someone of course.

Hello and greetings everyone,

I am being married to Tiffany Wagner on the planned date of June 3rd at First Church of Pearland under Bro Gurley. Here is a link with pictures of us. Jeremy and Tiffany's page. I am now 110% taken so please keep correspondence with me to a minimum. Thank you. :") Feel free to sign our guestbook.




Hello and God bless!

I would like to request that my Bio be removed from Apostolic Friends. Shortly after subscribing, God brought a wonderful young woman into my life and we are now engaged. I never really had the opportunity to fully partake of this service; however, I'm thankful for the many responses I received and the people I met through it. Furthermore, kudos to you for providing a much needed service for a very lonely group of Apostolics. I'm sure it's taxing at times, but your efforts are greatly appreciated. My userid is bhartun. May God continue to bless and keep you.

Dear Sis. Lunsford


I want to take this time to thank you so much for Apostolic Friends ministries. For it was through this avenue that I met a very wonderful and precious lady, Sis Zoraida Hidalgo. She is the answer to my prayers and for whom I have waited so long for. Therefore, I am so proud to announce that we are planning an April wedding!!! (Hallelujah! She said yes and the ring is on her finger!!!) :o))))))))


So respectively, I am requesting that my bio page be taken off the site and Zoraida will be submitting her request also. However, I am sending a picture of us that you may use to post elsewhere along with this letter. I want the whole world to know how happy we are!!!! Once again, thank you Sis. Lunsford for your ministry! God is truly blessing your efforts and if possible I would like this poem to accompany this announcement.

As the rose unfolds to drink of the sun

So as my thirst to find that special someone.

Zoraida, you are the rose of my life!


God Bless.

Bro. Paul Warren



Sis. Lynn,


I would like to have my picture removed from the Singles Web page. I have met someone who is so wonderful and we are getting married on April 15, 2000. I live in Jackson, TN and she lives in Aurora, IL. We met through a mutual friend. I want to remain on the email list because I love receiving the emails. I am including a picture of myself with my fiancé, Tracy Lancaster. The website is a WONDERFUL ministry.

Keep up the good work.


Barry Hart



Sister Lynna,

Please remove my picture and bio from the AF website. I met a wonderful man on the AF onelist. Paul is also from Maine like me. He is a wonderful christian man and we both know the Lord put us together. We are planning on getting married soon but we have not set the date yet. :)

Sis. Lunsford:

I would like to thank you for all of your hard work that goes into maintaining and updating this ministry. Surely it must be heartfelt in order for you to invest so much time and effort. Rev. Michael Watts and I hereby request that our bio pages be removed from this network. We feel that God is orchestrating something wonderful in our lives and we are very excited.

May God continue to bless this ministry and all that participate.

Thank you again!

Hello, I just wanted to make sure that I was not still in the singles section with pictures and available. God has brought me my wife, not from this web site, but through mutual friends. Thanks for all your support and during the single journey. Please remove me from the singles page(s). Again thanks and have a blessed day!



Rich Hehl



I would apreciate it if you would remove my bio page from AF. I have just started to seriously date someone here in my church..... I appreciate all your effort and work you have put into AF. I have met a lot of great people here and have enjoyed it a lot. Thanks,

-Michael Wayne Benson


I am pleased to announce that on October 16th, 1999, Trish McGhghy and I, Chris Sterrett will be married by Bro Norman Pasley II in Cincinnati, Ohio. You and Apostolic Friends will be some of the first people to know beyond our families and pastors.


Due to this great blessing from God, Trish and I will be asking that our bio pages be removed from the singles sight. We will be glad to make a statement about Apostolic singles for the hall of friends if you would like. It has been fun and interesting to see all the other singles on the websight and to be able to interact with them. I enjoyed my time being on there and I am sure Trish did too. Thank you once again for all that you have done.

God Bless, Chris Sterrett and Trish McGhghy



Sis. Lynna,

I am writing to you so that I can let you know that i need to be removed from the Apostolic Friends website. I have found my "perfect gift of God" in a neighboring church. She is a beautiful saint who loves God, my daughter, and I think she likes me pretty well too ..... hehehe. I have enjoyed being a participent in the AF website ministry and I wish you continued blessings and success for the duration of your efforts to help the Holy Ghost filled singles of today find their "perfect gift of God."

Bro. Howard D. Lanham



Praise the LORD Saints....

I have some good news and some bad news.... The GOOD news is that I got married on Tuesday September 28, at about 8:30pm in my mother-in-law's house... I am very happy, my wife is a very wonderful woman...GOD is very good, and as along as you have the faith, it can and will move mountains...


The BAD news is that due to my defunct single status, I shall have to remove my name from the list serve. Fortunately I will keep up with all of my "older" friends...but I have to let the younger female ones go...(no problem, I already have a best friend in Jesus and my wife). Unfortunately I will not be able to read all of the funny, funny christian jokes...


Sister Lynna this is a nice wonderful ministry that you have put together here. When I first signed up, I had just broken up with my fiancee, I knew that this was the person that GOD had chosen for me (my rib), but I still was very heartbroken. Since I was single, I decided to apply to the listserver. Well when I lost my fiancee, I lost my best friend, my spiritual partner, someone I could have fun with, and someone who could make me smile. In a little over a month GOD supplied my needs, although it came in the form of three different people. He gave me someone who could understand what I was going through, and he gave me someone to help cheer me up, and then he sent me someone who could help keep me aware of my spirituality (some of you know how the devil likes to kick and stomp on us when we are down). All through out I held fast to my faith, and GOD allowed me to see that things were done for a reason. Now today we are happily married, I believed, and I held fast to my faith even when it seemed like vapors and wisps of smoke were all I had, I held fast. I am enjoying a better and closer walk with GOD, and I have a desire to not just make it, but to make it with flying colors. I want to be all that I can be in CHRIST and not in this world.

Sometimes some of us really and truthfully need to seek GOD with all of our hearts, and no just half. Sometimes we need to do like we say, so that when we say we are trying to be satisfied with him, or trying to focus on him, we should instead of keeping our eye open for that special other. It is a lot easier to say than do. I know... But when I lost interested in all women (no I am not coming out of the closet) and my interest in GOD increased, MAN did things begin to happen. And I do know that the devil is a LIAR!!!

Well folks that is all, a small testimony... Sister Lynna please remove me from the listserver when you get the chance. thank you for all of the wonderful stories and testimonies and jokes my fellow saints!!!


May I abide in his house forever!!!

William Perry Henderson



Please remove my name from the Apostolic Singles . Your service is outstanding but I've made other contacts. God Bless all of your endeavors!

David T. Hall


I just wanted to drop you this little note and let you know that one of my most sincere prayers has finally been answered. At long last, I have met the man who God intended for me to marry. His name is Gary Knapp and he is from  Ohio. I am overwhelmed to realize that God remembered my prayers and is at last making a dream come true. God really is faithful to His promises. I am grateful for my friends who believed that God hadn't forgotten that desire of my heart when I'd given up on ever finding someone who would "wow" me. What can I say? You were right. I was wrong. Your faith was stubborn - - mine was shaky at times. God really is a "prayer answering God" ... and He knows exactly the desires of our hearts. ............... I am overwhelmed to realize that God remembered my prayers and is at last making this dream come true. God really is faithful to His promises. Our wedding is scheduled for Saturday, October 23, 1999, in Beaumont, Texas.

Thanks for all of your encouragement over the past few months. Your ministry through the Apostolic Friends web site has been such a blessing to me. May God richly bless you!!

Greetings in Jesus' name....at this time I would like to be deleted from the Apostolic Friends...because the Lord has blessed me with a wonderful man ...and I'm in love.....

Hello Sis. Lynna, I am proud to let you know that I am getting married this weekend, so please remove me from your list. I am not a website member and do not correspond with any other members, but have enjoyed the stories and funnies that many have sent in. Please unsubscribe me from this listing.

Thank you.

Please remove my page from your list. I have met a wonderful lady and we met in person. I met her from this web sight. We are planning a wedding in the near future. We've been talking since April. God bless you for your time and effort.

Br. Jesse Stroupe


Sis. Lynna,

i was wanting to inform you that a few weeks ago, i began writing to a young apostolic lady that i met through the free email list. through much prayer and the Lord's leading, i have come to realize that she is the one meant for me. It has all happened very quickly, but we both know that God has ordained this and made this to happen this way. since this is the case, i am requesting that my bio page be removed from the paid website.


i appreciate what you are doing in this ministry and i thank God that you were willing to allow yourself to be used in this manner. i pray that God will give both you and your husband all that He has in store for you and will lead the two of you on to greater things in the future.. in Jesus Name,
