If you’re ready to find a connection that lasts, then join Elite Singles today. At least it does until you realize that not all of these Canadian Christians can be considered 'active' in their church communities.
- Janelle Paris, social anthropologist at Messiah College Indeed, a surprisingly large percentage of Christian singles are turning to the internet to find a long-term, spiritually-connected partner.
This goes to prove what so many spiritually-minded Canadians already know, that there's a difference between being a cultural, church-on-Christmas Christian and actually being a dedicated worshipper of Christ.
This may be a small matter for some but for Christian singles who want a faith-filled partnership, it's a vital difference, and one that adds to the challenge of finding a partner who you trust shares the same values.
One of the challenges for young Christians in China is finding spouses who are also believers.
Because of family and society expectations to marry, young people, especially those whose parents are not believers, are under extreme pressure because their parents do not understand (or accept) their commitment to marry other Christians.
In the words of Jenell Paris, social anthropologist at Messiah College; “Christians should look online for dates…because that’s where the people are! Rebecca says ‘'my faith is at the central part of who I am [so] I need to be able to share that with my partner.” And she’s not alone in that wish.
