This app was inspired by the call to unity (in Ephesians 4 & John 17) and the call to love and encourage one another (in Hebrews 10 & 1 Thessalonians 4). In addition we were greatly inspired by Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s book “Life Together”. Bonhoeffer beautifully describes how we can see Jesus more clearly in the lives and testimonies of our brothers and sisters.

United Young is now HOLY. Thanks for joining us on this journey! This update packs a bunch of small improvements and bug fixes. You can now see your ended chats of the last 30 days. Ended a chat respectfully, but still want to go back and see what you wrote? Now you can. We also fixed a bug where a notification badge for a new message would misbehave. No more. Other notable improvements include blocking and reporting, where we added an option to say that you’re not interested. Finally, we clarified that you can use the app for free or choose to support us and get extra features. Either way, we’re so grateful for you being part of our community! Be blessed!
Ratings and Reviews
Met my husband so can’t complain 😂
I did the whole “download and delete dating apps game” for about a year. Downloaded United Young in October of 2020, started talking to a guy in November 2020, officially started dating him in January 2021, engaged in April 2021, married in August 2021. We joke about this all the time because one of the first conversations I had with him I stated, “Don’t even talk to me about dating for at least a year.” …and we got married 8ish months after meeting 😂 We have been married for a year and a half now and we are both still baffled at how God worked this all out.
I’m not saying your story will be the same, I’m not encouraging everyone to get married quickly (but I will say it is very apparent if God is the center, so why wait)?! My husband and I both really liked how this app was deliberate about who Jesus is to you and how your walk with the Lord is. Most other Christian dating apps are just like, “What’s your denomination?”…seriously?!
Anyway, considering I met my husband through United Young I can’t NOT recommend it. I will say, just be diligent in seeking God’s will through it all. Don’t take things too seriously either and think every guy you talk to is going to be your potential husband 😂
Hi Kathleen! My name is Dan and I live in Carrollton Ohio. I just joined yesterday and wanted to say that I am very pleasantly surprised. I haven’t been on many dating sites over time because I am always in long-term relationships and in general just not that type. I have to say from the things that I have seen that your site is much different and pleasantly surprising in a lot of good ways, and I am very impressed with the set up of it all. The only thing that I’m not too fond of his the character minimization on things, but I guess I could also be a good thing. I have reached out to some people and haven’t heard anything back yet, but I’ve only been on here a day and that is not the point. I can honestly see from the people that are on here that mostly from what I’ve seen the majority of the people are here for one reason and God based in the way, they live their life. That’s truly what I’m looking for is to be surrounded by good people that are faith based and truly good hearted, sincere and moral base people. Like I said, I’ve been in a lot of long-term relationships. My entire life and I’ve never been married.. The difference is, I’ve never 100% base the relationship with focus on faith in God, and I feel now looking back that without that or not having that leaves no real chance of a true, lasting in lifelong relationship, which is why I’m here. Just wanted to say thank you and I hope you have a good day!
I honestly like the app or the ease of finding friends who believe what you do and have the same goals BUT most females on here are just promoting themselves or their Bible study. Now, nothing wrong with Bible Study and I am a lover of the Word- however, I’m here to make friends- I thought that was the purpose of the app. Most of the “friends” I connected with invited me to a Bible study and then I didn’t hear from them after lol like what??And there were some bible studies I was invited to and attended and the person that invited me wasn’t even there?? And this has happened more than once. It’s Weird. I feel this is the type of stuff that turns people away from truly experiencing Christ. Not everybody is even comfortable attending group meetings and may have anxiety with being around other people. Some people aren’t even fully mature to know what Bible study is and attend. You can show the love of Christ, be a true friend, share the Gospel without even mentioning your Bible study. You can’t connect with someone by just inviting them to your Bible study. Friendship is much more than that and you’re missing a whole audience by doing that. Thanks for listening lol. Thanks for the app but I’m unsubscribing for this reason. I’m better off meeting people in person which I have no problem doing either lol all said with love ❤️ and I was strictly on here to meet friends. I did appreciate that since I’m married , it only suggested females to friend. I like that.
