Dating does not include listings for all dating sites.
Christian singles are flocking to Christian dating sites such as Christian Mingle®(which just hit its 10 millionth membermark), to find a potential soul mate who shares the same faith and values.
While it's rare nowadays to find a single Christian who isn't open to online dating, church leaders may be slower to adopt the evolution of what has become the dating "norm."Pastors are all about celebrating relationships that are initiated in the traditional local church, but as I have observed, many are well behind the bell curve when it comes to online dating.
God is ever present in the act of building relationships, and to be successful, singles must keep this in mind while remaining true to their Christian values.
Whether it's face-to-face or online, the values that are represented for Christians should be consistent.
In the Christian community, one will find all levels of acceptance of online dating, but the fact of the matter is online dating isn't going anywhere-and for good reason.
In order to remain relevant and care for an entire congregation, pastors must be in sync with their singles community.I have two theories for why the stigma still exists in church leadership.The first is that pastors like to grow their own congregations organically.Niche, religious dating sites, such as Christian Mingle, often offer advanced filtering to find someone who is as equally vested in the Lord.For example, Christian Mingle offers a relationship readiness IQ test and a compatibility matching profile assessment (COMPASS®) to help members focus on the process of becoming someone who can form and maintain high-quality relationships.Looking for an online dating site with a large Christian user base?
