“Christian relationship and interactive platform for mature adults who are ready and hoping to get married,
“it is not a dating site as the world knows it, but a faith-driven interactive community of mature believers, who are connecting with one another with a view to building enduring and fruitful Christian relationships.
“This is a pre-finding-marriage counselling session to prepare mature adults, who are ready for marriage for that journey of a lifetime. With the view that they make their choices in line with the fear of God and along with the dictates of our faith,” he explained in the letter.
The pastor said that the emphasis will be on being grounded in the faith, right family values, and being fit and proper for marriage.
He said the platform is for mature adults, widows, widowers who are looking forward to God getting married, adding that the age range is from 18 and above.
He added that interested participants are to register on the website’s registration page and would be thoroughly vetted and in turn approved to sign in directly on the site.
