Bishop T.D. Jakes’ megachurch The Potter’s House has teamed up with dating website ChristianMingle.com in an effort to help Christian singles connect. The Christian Post reports members of the Dallas-based megachurch will receive exclusive offers from Christian Mingle, such as discounted membership fees.
The partnership began as a way to connect Dallas church members with The Potter’s House members from other campuses, as well as Christians who don’t attend the megachurch complex.
Potter's House pastor Bonne Moon said, "This one-of-a-kind singles program from ChristianMingle will expand the opportunity for our singles to build a strong sense of 'like-minded' community with others, and may even spark some love matches!"
Spark Networks CEO Michael Egan was also enthusiastic about the idea.
"Having worked with numerous church leaders across the country to shape this unique initiative, we're excited that we continue to expand our ability to help single Christians meet others that share their faith while also strengthening their ties to their church,” he said.
Jakes and his wife have been married for almost 30 years.
The pastor said, "Marriage requires work and expecting the unexpected. Don't let other people design a marriage you can't live with. Keep other people out your business. Every marriage is different."
