Back to Growth Plan List

Dating . . . does the word strike anxiety or anticipation in your heart? With all the tech connectivity, it seems that it’s just made dating more complicated, confusing and frustrating than ever before.

In this seven-day plan based on Single. Dating. Engaged. Married. Ben Stuart will help you see that God has a purpose for this season in your life, and he offers guiding principles to help you determine who and how to date.

Ben is the pastor of Passion City Church, Washington, DC, and former executive director of Breakaway Ministries, a weekly Bible study attended by thousands of college students on the campus of Texas A&M. 

01 01

First Things Come First

Jesus gave all to make you his. He will never give up on you. So, before you date—and before you marry—you need to meet with your Maker and form a relationship with him.
02 02

A Pilot for the Journey

As long as fear, lust, and pride are in the driver’s seat of your relationship, you will be speeding away from healthy love.
03 03

Why Date?

Dating is not about chasing another person so you can find your meaning and fulfillment in him or her. That is far too much weight to put on any human being.
04 04

Who to Date

You are looking for a person to love, not a product to consume. So your selection process can’t be rooted in transient characteristics that fade over time.
05 05

How to Date

The path to love can be painful, but there is a way to navigate it that can avoid needless pain.
06 06

Principles of Dating (Part 1)

Believers in Jesus do not need to play games. Life is short. You don’t have time to mess around with people’s emotions. Say what you mean. Mean what you say.
07 07

Principles of Dating (Part 2)

Your aim should be to bless, not simply to impress. Don’t stress too much about trying to impress. Dating is for evaluating and blessing. That’s it.
