QUESTION: Is this Introduction Service only for committed (born-again) Christians?

We cannot guarantee that everyone that visits this site is a committed (born-again) Christian, however only committed (born-again) Christians are eligible to become members.

QUESTION: How many introductions (profiles) do I receive?
ANSWER: There is no limit to the amount at any given time during duration of membership

QUESTION: How many members do you have?
ANSWER: Not any easy question to answer. Lets try to answer it this way. We have been in operation since 1987. This service is BLESSED & SUCCESSFUL. Membership grows DAILY. Many online services might tell you they have e.g. 15 000 members. (That possibly includes members PAST & PRESENT, members "on hold" for whatever reason, non paying members (who might have just completed the membership form online but have as yet not officially joined or paid the membership fee) etc etc. If we were to include all these members, we could tell you we have 50 000 members!! There are many /friendship services. We are not online per se (which means Members do not connect with others via the website - but connect DIRECTLY.) We are not worldwide. We chose not to be. Our membership is in the region of 2500+ ACTIVE members. (From all walks of life, age & ethnical origin) Remember the larger the membership the harder it becomes to maintain a PERSONALISED service. We do not want to lose the HANDS ON approach. We also believe that God would not want you to become JUST a number. We are EXCLUSIVE to committed (born-again) Christians. Which makes Connecting Christians exclusive!! Specialised!! QUALITY rather than QUANTITY! Thus we can share with you that we are one of the largest one-on-one Christian dating/friendship Introduction services in South Africa.
