The City of David Parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God has opened an online dating site for mature singles.
This came after the Pastor of the parish, Idowu Iluyomade promised at a forum that the site would be opened.
At the forum, Pastor Iluyomade had charged the singles to interact and create an ambiance that would allow them to make decisions for life partners.
Pastor Iluyomade during the forum had approached a young man called Deji and encouraged him to mingle with the single ladies. He was excited when the man said he was willing to marry.
But how exactly he would make the choice is something that could not readily be determined.
Deji was made to sit in the midst of two ladies named Mercy and Joy and he was encouraged to chat with them.
We will connect you
It was at this forum that Pastor Iluyomade promised that the church would open an online Christian dating site.
He promised that the site will be a platform for single men and women to connect. He however said the people who connect have to do their due diligence.
Exactly a week after the site was launched, the Facebook page of the parish has an advertisement of the site as www.connectnow.com.ng with the sign off…don’t just say God when! Sign up for our Christian dating site.
When a person registers on the site, from the experience of this reporter, the information would still have to be processed before approval.
But there is a caveat by the church on the site urging people who connect to do their due diligence.
The disclaimer reads, Connectnow is a Christian singles platform where men and women meet to prepare for courtship and marriage. This website, its content (including any information provided by registrants), and activities of Connectnow is for the purpose of connecting for courtship and marriage only and is not intended to replace or serve as a substitute for any due diligence/background checks to be conducted by the registrants prior to connecting.
“Every registrant must conduct his or her own independent background check before connecting with another registrant on this platform. The Redeemed Christian Church of God, City of David Parish makes no representations or warranties and expressly disclaims any and all liability concerning any damages sustained by any registrant as a result of connecting with anyone on this platform.”
