They have done a wonderful job making sure it’s a safe and encouraging environment for finding new friends as well as building new relationships in Christ. Wonderful job.
Met my now fiancé on here!
Thank you for this app and ministry. It definitely stands out over other Christian dating apps out there. I barely used it before I met a guy last August, and we just got engaged in January.
Quality Christian app
So refreshing. I love that there’s a focus on authentic relationships. You can feel that this app is run by Christians who value Jesus and connecting the body of Christ first and foremost.
Great dating app
I like how they actually vet the profiles before letting people join the community. Definitely recommend this for any Christians looking to date or looking for friends!
There’s so much prayer and intentionality behind this app. I can sense it immediately. The small details matter to God. Praying this app grows with more believers.
Met my wife on this app
On other apps I’d have weeks of conversations to know what people believe. Here you can tell who loves Jesus and who plays church. Love my wife, and I have this app to help thank.
I am so grateful that there is an app out there for people who want to date differently. I love the approach that they take as it aligns with my values.
Met my wife through here
After downloading, I eventually found my wife. I love that the mission is to find God-centered people. As opposed to faith being a label, it is the core philosophy how this app is designed.
A breath of fresh air for Christians trying to find a partner. Not only are the staff friendly, even the subscription fees are reasonable. Exactly what the Christian community needs!
It’s a real Christian app
This app is different because they manually review each application. If you’re looking for a hookup, please go somewhere else. Believers who have Christ in them, give this app a chance.
Best Christian app ever
This app is phenomenal! It’s one of the best Christian dating apps ever made in my opinion. Beats other apps with their emphasis on Jesus! Can’t recommend it enough!
Best dating app
I absolutely love Holy! It’s the best dating app I have ever been on. It’s extremely safe and the quality of matches is amazing. I love how Christ centered it truly is. Highly recommend.
So thankful for this app!
In a world of shallow dating apps, this gem stands above the rest. It's Jesus centered. It feels genuine. I recommend this to my Christian friends all the time.
Met my wife so it was worth it
The app is great! A place where other Christians exist besides church! I’ve been married two years now. Don’t be here to meet “nice” people, but people who you can grow in the Lord with.
I love how this app has so many Bible verses throughout it! It’s so rare to find an app that seeks to uplift and encourage one another and honor Christ!
Designed to grow your faith.
We named our app HOLY to remind ourselves of our calling as Christians. Regular dating apps are about instant gratification, leaving dignity and holiness at the door. We put our Christian calling first, always seeking to encourage one another in faith.
Christ before all things
The whole app is centered on Jesus and God’s word. Unless we focus on what truly matters, we’re doing relationships wrong.
Intentional people only
Goodbye trolls. We manually review every single profile and selfie-verify all photos. Yes, that’s a ridiculous amount of work, but worth it, so you can talk to real people.
Culture of encouragement
The profile prompts are designed for uplifting connections, allowing people to express the love of Christ in their lives. How can we encourage one another with the hope we were given?
No swiping here. We believe each human is made in the image of God, and that technology impacts how we see and treat others. That’s why the actions on the app are designed to show dignity.
Have you ever met 150 people by name in 15 minutes? That sounds exhausting. That’s why we pace our app for meaningful interactions, with intentional breaks and scripture reminders.
We are independent and 100% community supported. No ads, no selling of data, no corporate agenda. Only one simple mission: encourage people in their faith through community.
A tiny team on a big mission
Unlike apps made by big companies, the HOLY app is completely built by a married couple Kathleen & Jonathan, with support from two caring psychologists. We take our mission seriously in serving the HOLY community. You have direct access to chat with us in the app. We love to hear from you!
After a decade long design career at large and small startups, Kathleen started HOLY (formerly United Young) with her husband Jonathan. Her main focus is helping grow the community, improving the app experience, and bringing great fun to the team.
Writing code since he was 10 and leaning on his experience as a PK, Jonathan has decades of experience using his talents in technology to build and serve the Christian community. On his time off he loves building legos with their 2 year old daughter.
Community Support & Review
After receiving her degree in psychology and helping underserved communities for 5+ years, Nazaret joined us to care for the HOLY community. She is a mental health and children’s rights advocate. Under the name “Nile van Nile” she crafts beautiful pottery and illustrations, as seen on HOLY.
Prayer Support & Review
Judith (a marriage and family therapist, who is also Jonathan’s mom) has been the biggest supporter and advocate for the HOLY community since day one. She has spent endless hours praying over the community and plays a big role in reviewing and approving community applications and photos.
1 Thessalonians 4:9–10
“Regarding life together and getting along with each other, you don’t
need me to tell you what to do. You’re God-taught in these matters. Just
love one another! You’re already good at it; your friends all over the
province of Macedonia are the evidence. Keep it up; get better and
better at it.” (MSG)
