The Redeemed Christian Church Of God (RCCG), the City of David Parish, has launched an online Christian dating platform for mature singles to interact and find their life partners.
The Parish Pastor, Idowu Iluyomade, who disclosed this at a forum, said single persons who are searching for their life partners in Nigerian can do so in the Christian way on RedeemersConnect.org
The cleric said he had approached a young man identified as Deji to relate with single ladies and was pleased when the man stated that he was willing to marry.
How to go about his decision was the issue and this made the cleric to promise that the church would open an online Christian dating site where singles can interact and create an atmosphere that would allow them to make decisions for life partners.
Pastor Iluyomade further stated that when a single lady or young man registers on the site, the information would still have to be processed before approval.
It was gathered that every participant must perform an independent background check before connecting with another registrant on the platform.
The site has a disclaimer that reads in part, “Every registrant must conduct his or her own independent background check before connecting with another registrant on this platform.
“The Redeemed Christian Church of God, City of David Parish makes no representations or warranties and expressly disclaims any and all liability concerning any damages sustained by any registrant as a result of connecting with anyone on this platform.”
The site has its mission as follows: “Redeemers Connect is exclusively for Christian singles, widows, widowers, and unmarried seniors in the RCCG global family with serious intent to get married within a year or two upon enlisting as a member.
“Our ‘connect to court” matchmaking algorithm has been carefully designed to take your preferences into account. We encourage honest and genuine responses so that we can match your preferences in the most accurate manner.
“We are committed to keeping your profile safe and ensuring that members registered on the site are genuine and active within the church community.”
Meanwhile, a group of married men has staged a protest at a radio station where they accused Pastor Harrison Anazodo of allegedly “snatching” their wives, sisters, and mothers.
