Thumbs up for the HOLY app!

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?


Ethical design

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.


Meaningfully paced

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.


Community supported

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 our team 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.



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)
