Christian Mingle has just signed up a large group of US churches to its new church partnership program.
Launched in February, the ChristianMingle For Churches program seeks to help singles from particular congregations connect with each other.
Singles from partnered churches get dedicated search capabilities, discounted membership fees, as well as personalised customer service offerings.
And the Spark Networks-owned site has just signed up the Southern Diocese of the Fellowship of International Churches to the program.
This fellowship includes 15 churches across Mississippi and Georgia, who will now offer their congregants membership to ChristianMingle.
This is the biggest church partnership the dating site has made so far, having trialled the idea with the Grace Family Church in Lutz, Florida and New Horizon Church International in Jackson, Mississippi, then adding Dallas megachurch The Potter’s House to the program in April.
Michael Egan, the CEO of Spark Networks said: “We are pleased to incorporate another wonderful community of churches that can utilize the tools we offer to help single Christians find lasting love and fulfilling relationships within their faith spectrum.
”We look forward to collaborating with these pastors and their respective communities of Christian singles.”
In addition to discounts and dedicated customer service benefits, partnered churches also get a custom site for church attendees and custom badges.
Partners also gets access to CMforChurches.com, an online resource that offers pastors a host of tailored web tools to help connect singles within their church communities.
Last month it was revealed that ChristianMingle would be opened up to gay and lesbian singles following a class action lawsuit against the dating platform’s owner, Spark Networks.
