Who will you dine with?
Houston & Dallas Christian Singles
The backstory of Eight Date: during my single season I consistently yearned for an elevated form of the “singles group.” Living in the city center of Houston, I saw eligible singles circulating around each other and often not intersecting. We had large church based singles communities, all sorts of house parties and large special events – but nothing that scaled the opportunities and interactions. Around all this activity there was a shocking level of disconnect and many found refuge and hope inside the chaos of online dating sites. Have you experienced loneliness even amidst an active pool of single adults? Perhaps, like my wife Jennifer, you live in area where eligible peer candidates are lacking. Hundreds (even thousands) of potential mates may be around you yet making meaningful connections is often a rare occurrence. Eight Date, Christian singles matched dinner groups will change all of that. We’ll have groups for all ages and a a simple code of conduct to keep things on track.
Network Christian Singles Together
I longed for a sophisticated, mature network of Houston Christian singles – a community that would encourage driven dating with a marriage focus while promoting friendship, spiritual growth, and personal development. I wondered if it would be possible to integrate like-hearted Christian single adults into a self-sustaining circle capable of generating marriages by the bushels, year in and year out. Surely there had to be a way to transcend the posturing of the church single scene. These singles groups should be a place where it is perfectly normal to speak out an intentional desire to get married. The communities and clubs of runners and hobbyists training for competitions and spurring one another on toward goal attainment & milestones inspired me. My ministry partner Brent Hathorn and I brainstormed for years on the best approach to connect Houston Christian singles. Then we put things together and iterated. Now we are ready to introduce Eight Date! This is our prayer for Eight Date:
Lord, would you call together your sons & daughters, men and women spanning the metro Houston area for the purpose of holy matrimony?
Let’s Talk About Christian Dating
We’ve been coached, taught, tutored and instructed on a wide array of subjects throughout our lives and even though marriage is the ultimate human institution in our lives, the critical subject of Christian dating is seldom discussed. Men and women study the intricacies of healthy eating, exercise, NFL receivers, and political candidates, yet for many access to Biblically grounded relationship guidance is out of reach. This will change inside our community with a steady stream of edifying content and productive discussions on Christian dating. Far too many Christian communities drill down the fine points of ecclesia or soteriology while neglecting the obvious elephant herd pounding the floors – Christian singles need to get married!
A Better Form Of Houston Online Dating
Online dating (and now dating apps) have long been effective means for singles to scout their mates. In fact 30% of the wedding ceremonies I’ve conducted have been for couples that initially connected online. Of course the bottom line is that we always actually meet in-person. Online interaction can be a helpful bridge to real life encounters. Though unfortunately, many times digital dialoguing and dating can be damaging and disappointing. At Marriage Pursuit we recognize the potential of online dating and will advance this social medium further. It is time for an upgrade from the dating sites of the mid 2000’s! Our innovations will boost the success rate (% of profitable relationships leading to marriage) of online interactions and greatly reduce the let down factor. When you connect with Eight Date you’ll be at the forefront of a fundamental reengineering of online dating, starting with Houston Christian Singles. For a limited time this is free Christian dating! Clearly something dramatic is beginning!!! Be sure to be a part! Receive information on all that Marriage Pursuit is doing by connecting below.
