UY: The best rated Christian dating & friendship app. Connect with people on mission for the Gospel. Make friends. Grow your faith together. It’s free to join!

United Young (UY) is an app to meet people who love Jesus, made by wife and husband duo Kathleen & Jonathan.

Every day the app lets you connect with an inspiring selection of Christians near you.

See someone you’re interested in? Like their profile. If it’s mutual, we will connect you both and you can chat!

• Find a friend within the Christian community.
• Read why people say Jesus matters.
• Share your testimony and Bible inspiration.
• Find inspiration in the faith journey of people near you.
• Discover people in similar seasons of life.

Note: Christ-centered dating is only available to those who are single and of age 18 and upward.

We welcome everyone who confesses Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and considers themselves a Christian (confessing the Nicene Creed) to join! We seek to connect the greater Christian community, and are united in our love for Jesus.

Whether you are Catholic, Nondenominational, Evangelical, Anglican, Baptist, Reformed, Orthodox, Pentecostal, Lutheran, Methodist, or are just at the beginning of your journey with Jesus, you are welcome to join our diverse community of believers!

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.

Best Christian-Dating App I've Seen

I'd never heard of this app until a few days ago when I downloaded it somewhat as a lark. I was very, very pleasantly surprised by the level of care and intentionality that clearly went into it. In terms of experience, United Young is essentially a nice combination of the best elements of Hinge and Coffee Meets Bagel and that is designed specifically for Christians. I'm genuinely impressed by what Jonathan and Kathleen, the app's creators, have produced. I'm impressed by the video introductions they give, that they personally review every application to join, the type of questions they ask for your profile, the constant support and attention they offer, and even by the way they market the app. Clearly, they have an earnest commitment to their mission to create an app that fosters Christ-centered relationships and communities. I love this app and I want it to succeed. It's not perfect--there are a few features I wish it had, its user base is still relatively small, at least in my area--but I respect its creators, I think it's the best Christian dating app right now, and it has a lot of potential. If it continues to grow, I think this could easily become the top dating app for Christians like me. Jonathan and Kathleen deserve your support. Download it and give it a try.

Promo App?

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.

Married My United Young Match

I’m not one to write reviews but I joined United Young back around when covid was just beginning. There weren’t a lot of people as it was just a newer dating app, however it made things pretty authentic. I love the platform of having to send in an application with your pre-made profile, to me, this was a key factor in understanding that people who want flings wouldn’t wait for an acceptance or would rather go to another app that allows them to sign up immediately, so I felt safe using UY.

Within two months of joining, I met my now husband and we hit it off pretty well. We lived an hour away from one another, but the drive was not too bad and it was worth it. This app helped me to find someone who was genuine and that shared very similar values, especially with God being the first priority. We married in April this year and are now expecting our first child, who will be here February 2023. Thank you for making this wonderful app and helping me find my soulmate.

In times of uncertainty and many people who aren’t in relationships for the long run with God as their foundation, I truly recommend this app to anyone who wants a deeper connection with someone.
