The Dock

What is “The Dock”?

The Dock is a ministry at The Harbor for young adults and singles of all ages.


Picture a dock. A dock exists within a harbor as the place ships tie up to, to load and unload, to give and receive. It is a physical place of connecting, tethering, and securing.

Just as a dock exists within a harbor, The Dock exists within The Harbor as a place where single men and women can gather and connect with one another, be encouraged, have fun, and pursue Christ! Some of our gatherings will include a wide range of ages. Some will be divided by age with Dock Prime for those aged 40 and wiser and Dock Young Adults for those in their 20s and 30s.

God has great purpose for us as unmarried men and women. He has a great calling on our lives! We desire to realize this great calling and become an integral part of His church at The Harbor.

wondering why such a ministry is needed?

Today, healthy venues for men and women to connect and feel a sense of belonging are hard to come by for single men and women. The world says we are ‘less-than’ if we are not with someone. But God says our value and identity are rooted in “whose we are” (Jesus), not who we are with. In the Church, surrounded by families, unmarried men and women may feel out of place. Yet, we have the same needs and calling as those with spouses and families – to connect, belong, and pour lives out for Jesus.

In the Bay Area, approximately 45% of adults are not married. Yet, within most churches, less than 20% of the adults are unmarried. We are missing men and women, and we desire to provide an avenue for these men and women to connect with our church and to know and love Jesus Christ!
