The CONNECTING CHRISTIANS Membership Agreement describes and sets out the Terms and Conditions of this PERSONALISED one-on-one Christian Introduction/Dating Service/Agency for UNATTACHED (born-again) Christian men and women looking for a relationship, love, romance and yes, even marriage!! The aim of this service is to assist as many unattached Believers as possible, to this end we would appreciate that you kindly adhere to the following:

  3. Photographs

      • You welcome to submit (photographs) after we have received your form.
      • There is no provision for photographs to be uploaded on our website as this is not Internet Dating!
      • Photographs are not posted on our website or any other Internet Service.
      • Member’s profile (details) is not posted on our website or any other Internet Service.

  4. Membership is reserved for UNMARRIED Christians only (i.e. divorced / widowed / not yet married).
  5. Membership is reserved EXCLUSIVELY to Committed (born-again) Christians.
  6. Membership fees are not refundable or transferable for any reason whatsoever.
  7. Six packages offered.
  8. Duration of membership is dependent on the package chosen, however, once membership activated (i.e. membership fee is settled), said membership will commence for duration of membership i.e. Member will (commence) receiving profiles. However, after settling membership fee, if member requests to hold back on receiving profiles for any reason, three months grace is permitted and duration (date) will only commence once the grace period has expired. If a further grace period is requested, this will be at the discretion of the Facilitator.
  9. The Membership fee is payable before contact names/profiles are provided.
  10. Membership fees must be paid in full. Instalments just create more administration. Thus, we do offer a reduced fee (solely at our discretion). We have a heart for Single Moms and other unattached Believers who are experiencing "financial hard times" and if you believe that you fall into this category then we will gladly offer (a reduced fee).
  11. All information given is STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL. We never divulge member's home addresses / work address / landline numbers. Only certain information will be given out to fellow members.
  12. Members are welcome to edit their own profiles, however, we do reserve the right to re edit/shorten/amend profiles.
  13. Should it become necessary, we do reserve the right to "check" members credentials including (but not limited to) member's church group ministers, but only in the most extreme cases.

    Having said the latter ...
  14. We are not responsible for investigating individuals and therefore we make no representation as to their character.
  15. We assume all applicants/members are (born-again) Christians with a basic belief based on John 3:16 (For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have Eternal Life).
  16. To avoid possible gossip and slander, members are requested not to discuss (with other members) details of who they have met previously, how many people they have met thus far or similar. If questions of this nature are put to you simply change the subject. The Bible is clear and speaks against gossip and slander which can bring dissention into the Body of Christ. Lets make a difference..... Because we are different!
  17. Regret cheques not accepted. For security reasons, kindly do not send cheque/money order or similar through the mail.
  18. Upon joining, we provide (via email) profiles of select members as close to member's specifications as possible and thereafter members are kindly requested to contact us monthly for further profiles (introductions). Thus you will be updated regularly with profiles.
  19. The onus is on members to personally keep in touch with us on a regular basis requesting profiles and simultaneously providing feedback.
    • To this end, kindly email for profiles and not text (SMS/Whatsapp) me.. as I cannot then file the request.
    • All members can also expect to receive contact from other members, thus when receiving profiles, we urge members to make contact SOONEST.
  20. Profiles include name, age, marital status, occupation, height, church group, hobbies/interests/sport, ABOUT ME (brief description of your character/personality) as well as who you trusting God for, area you reside, email address and mobile no.
  21. There is no limit as to the amount of profiles you receive at any given time
  22. Connecting Christians, its parent company, its leaders/facilitators, employees, agents and affiliates will under NO circumstances become embroiled in ANY kind of dispute over any members' race / colour / ethnicity choice or preference. It is a members constitutional right to chose whom so ever they wish and whilst Connecting Christians, its parent company, its leaders/facilitators, employees, agents and affiliates may or may not agree with such a choice / preference - Connecting Christians, its parent company, its leaders/facilitators, employees, agents and affiliates will NOT be held responsible in any way should any member or members request a particular race / colour / ethnicity of another member.
  23. Please note that this is not a marriage bureau and therefore we cannot be held responsible if members do not meet their "soul mate"! To this end, anything more than friendship will be a bonus from God! Furthermore, we will not be held responsible in the event of any other member not connecting/communicating/ceases communication with another member for whatever reason. Membership is continually on the increase, and therefore we believe there is somebody for everyone. PLEASE BE PATIENT!! In the (unlikely) event of a member not connecting with any other member (including whose profile(s) they may have received) during duration of their membership we will gladly extend membership (at our discretion) FREE OF CHARGE.
  24. Best form of communication is to e-mail me however, members are welcome to call /SMS/WhatsApp. KINDLY NOTE: Hours (to contact) are STRICTLY (unless urgent) MON-FRI 09h00-20h00; SAT 09h00-14h00. PUBLIC HOLIDAYS and SUNDAYS excluded.
  25. We reserve the right to terminate membership at ANY time, should any member be found to be married, dishonest in supplying wrong information on the Membership form or whose conduct we find unbecoming or unethical.
  26. As mature Christians we are all aware of the biblical principals regarding relationships, therefore please do not embark on anything that could harm the BODY OF CHRIST.
  27. When contacting another member and a meeting is arranged between two parties, if for some reason the appointment cannot be kept, the other party must be notified accordingly and as soon as possible, so as to prevent any inconvenience or embarrassment. MEMBERS are personally responsible for making and cancelling appointments; therefore we urge members to have contact numbers on hand.
  28. In the interest of "responsible security" - members first meeting should take place in public / neutral surroundings i.e. Restaurant / coffee shop etc.
  29. Personal details of members are exclusive and confidential and will UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES provided to NON members (i.e. friends, family etc.)
  30. Should any member meet someone special through Connecting Christians and request their membership to be placed "on hold", BOTH parties must personally inform (via email) this service/agency SOONEST - and if for any other reason members wish to be placed "on hold" the same would apply. Including if members meet someone outside of Connecting Christians or are away on holiday/business for a lengthy period of time. Members may re-instate their membership at any time during duration of membership or are welcome to re-join (if their membership date has expired). Kindly notify us accordingly (via email). Once you have signed up as a member there are NO REFUNDS.
  31. It is imperative that members inform Connecting Christians soonest of their request to be placed on hold for any reason especially if members meet someone through the service/agency or even if its not anyone through Connecting Christians - to avoid any embarrassment for the person (i.e. a member) who may have been given another members profile by the Facilitators. Remember, for some people (in particular some ladies even men who are shy!) it is difficult enough to e-mail/make that all important call. Now imagine how that person feels when they are told ”Sorry I have met someone!” Please make our job easier by adhering to this simple, but all important request. Please note: Should members request to re-instate their membership, duration of membership will commence for the remaining time i.e. date of joining (membership activated).
