Christian Mingle has been at the forefront in helping singles come together to share their core values and spiritual beliefs. This Christian dating site is a helpful matchmaker for spiritual singles who prioritize their faith as the cornerstone to their relationships and family life. 

By using technology to drive Christian connections online, Christian Mingle has become a beacon of matrimonial hope to its user base.

Each online dating success story carries a valuable lesson that can help other single Christians on their journey. Here are a few of our favorite testimonials from Christian Mingle.

1. Jenny and Daniel

Before they met, Jenny and Daniel had struggled to find a strong Christian love that led to marriage. They were both young and successful but had yet to enjoy the fulfillment of a faith-focused relationship and marriage.

Jenny and Daniel were married in California after meeting on Christian Mingle.

Sometimes when you’re at a crossroads in your personal life, you have to try something different. And that’s exactly what Jenny and Daniel did by joining Christian Mingle. Jenny said she was a little skeptical that online dating could work, but she trusted in God to lead her. 

After thoughtful consideration and prayer, Daniel took a chance and joined the online dating site. Daniel found Jenny’s profile and decided to contact her. Shortly afterward, they had their first date at Panera and ended up talking for three hours. Their love only grew with time. Six months later, the couple got engaged. 

Jenny and Daniel were married in Calimesa, CA, and they have since been blessed with a baby born of love and faith.

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” — Deuteronomy 31:6

Jenny said she didn’t expect the online dating experience to work, but it turned out to be part of God’s plan. Now she urges other Christian singles, “Be open to it, be prayerful, and do not let fear hold you back from trying it out.”

Takeaway: Be brave in the pursuit of the love God intends for you.

2. Kristin and Aseem

Online dating can bridge vast distances in the search for a perfect match. Kristin lived in Lawrenceville, Georgia, while Aseem was serving in the Air Force in Anchorage, Alaska, and yet Christian Mingle helped them find one another.

The pandemic was hard for singles, but Christian Mingle helped couples find love regardless.

Despite being on opposite sides of the U.S., Kristin and Aseem matched on Christian Mingle on December 8th, 2019. As their online relationship grew, the two began talking via video call on the regular and found common ground through their shared faith in God. 

Then, the unexpected happened – the Covid pandemic hit and delayed their plans of meeting in person. They would not have their first official date at Bonefish Grill until August 2020.

However, the pandemic did not stop the couple from talking and developing a deeper connection based on their Christian values and beliefs.

“I knew it was true love when I felt comfortable with talking about everything with her,” Aseem said.

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” –– 1 John 4:18

Aseem met his long-distance pen pal for the first time in Georgia. They later had a beautiful garden wedding after a quick three-month engagement.

Kristin advises single people, “Be patient, do not be afraid to find people outside of your comfort zone, pray, and make it known to friends and family that you are looking. Be open [and] honest and be ready to talk about the tough questions when you do find the one.”

Takeaway: Use time apart to grow closer in spirit.

3. Michaela and Joshua

The Christmas season can be a lonely time for Christian singles, but it can also be a romantic time to fall in love. Michaela and Joshua connected through Christian Mingle in December 2019 and spent the pandemic growing closer in heart and soul.

Joshua and Michaela bonded through their shared faith and values.

Joshua was living in Florida and Michaela was living in New York when they connected and exchanged virtual smiles on the Christian dating site. 

“Luckily, I had the paid program, and we were able to [chat] online for a few weeks before exchanging numbers,” explained Michaela. “Later, we met in person in February 2020 just before the world shut down due to Covid, and we began dating during that first visit!”

Despite the physical distance between them, the couple connected through prayer and a mutual understanding of what’s important in life. Christian Mingle gave Joshua and Michaela a communication line where they could spend time getting to know each other. 

“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.” — Hebrews 10:23 

The couple chatted online every day and were patient for the day when they could be together in person.

Eventually, true love began to bloom in full, and Josh proposed to Michaela on her birthday.

Christian Mingle is a good support system for people like Joshua and Michaela who know what they want in life and just need the right opportunity to be steady and fulfill God’s plan for them.

Takeaway: Temper your desires and remain true to your heart.

4. Rachel and Matthew

Marriage can seem a far away goal when you’re single and don’t know when you’ll meet that special person. Rachel and Matthew didn’t know their love story would come together as quickly as it did, and they have Christian Mingle to thank for the introduction.

Christian Mingle has sparked many lasting marriages.

Christian Mingle helped the couple connect and get to know each other on a deeper level. After several weeks of chatting online, they had their first date at a Halloween-themed amusement park followed by dinner at a nearby restaurant. At dinner, the two ended up talking for almost seven hours. Their first date ended at 2:00 AM, only because they both had to get to work the next day. 

Sparks flew that first night, and their love story unfolded rapidly in the months to come. Seven months after their first date, the couple got engaged. 

They were married in a small chapel in Tennessee surrounded by family and friends.

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. — Ephesians 4:2

“Allow God to lead you to a suitable match. Have patience, especially when things seem bleak,” Rachel said in her testimonial. 

Takeaway: Be patient and remain hopeful, especially when things look bleak.

5. Emily and Daniel

Modern life is busy and fast-paced. Despite their busy schedules, two single Christians yearned to connect with a special person to share in life’s joys, forever.

For Emily and Daniel, Christian Mingle meant the end of single life and the start of a new love grounded by a strong faith in God. 

“I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine…” — Song of Solomon 6:3

Emily prayed to be led to that special person who would be her partner for life. At the same time, Daniel put faith in God’s Will and trusted that He would lead him to his future wife.

The two came across each other’s profiles on Christian Mingle and took a leap of faith by pursuing the match. After several weeks of chatting on the app and talking on the phone, Daniel convinced Emily to meet in person. The couple had their first date at a coffee shop.

Emily and Daniel prayed together on their first date.

When they met in person, an instant connection was made. The couple spent three hours talking about Jesus, the Bible, and their hopes for the future.

At the end of the date, Daniel asked Emily if she would pray with him, and she agreed. They held hands, and he prayed for her and her upcoming school events. It left a deep heartfelt impression on Emily, and she thanked him for the prayer.

More dates followed over time and ultimately led to Daniel proposing the day after Valentine’s Day in front of Emily’s friends and family. They are now married and building a life together.

Emily’s advice to single people thinking about using Christian Mingle was simple: “Trust in God’s plan for you and know that God’s timing is perfect!”

Takeaway: Pray together from the beginning and always thereafter.

Christian Mingle Has Seen Success, But Will It Work For You?

Results from dating sites can vary across the board. But, for Christian Mingle, the success rate for Christian marriages is head-and-shoulders above other dating platforms. According to one study, Christian Mingle is responsible for more Christian marriages than any other dating site available.

That means singles who actively use Christian Mingle to meet Christian partners are more likely to fall in love and start families grounded by Christian faith and Christian values.

If you are marriage-minded and serious about finding a partner who shares your faith and beliefs, then Christian Mingle can be an effective tool to help on your journey.
