FAQ

Hello! We’re Kathleen & Jonathan, makers of the app, and here to help!

How does this app work?

Every day at noon you get up to 8 profiles in your “Daily Matches” and you can like the answers people write on their profile or tap “No, thanks” if you’re not interested.

If you tap “Like” on someone’s profile, they will get a chance to see your profile in the coming days. If they like your profile as well, we will connect you both and you can chat. People won’t know you liked their profile unless they like your profile too.

In the “Discover” section of the app you get up to 18 profiles each day of people who are outside of your preferences. For instance, they might be a little further away. You can choose to like their profile answers or tap “No, thanks” if you’re not interested. Just like your daily matches, these will be refreshed at noon each day.

We hope you are encouraged by reading about the work of Jesus in the lives of our community members. We believe Jesus gives us hope, dignity and a new way of treating each other with humility and kindness.

How do I message someone?

In order to message someone, you and they first have to like one of each other’s profile answers. Once that happens, we connect you both and reveal which answer you both liked, and a chat is created where you both can message each other.

How long does it take to connect with someone?

This varies greatly per person. In general, we see most people make a connection within the first two weeks. The more time you invest in writing thoughtful profile answers and selecting clear pictures in which your face is visible, the more likely someone is to like your profile. In addition to that, the best way to increase your likelihood of connecting with someone is to like more profiles, creating more opportunities to connect.

What pictures should I upload?

For a successful profile, make sure to upload six unique pictures in which your face is clearly visible. It’s best to have at least one close up portrait of your face, and several pictures of you with your friends or doing activities you enjoy. This lets people who view your profile learn about who you are, and increases the likelihood of them liking your profile.

We strive to have the app be a warm and welcoming Christ-like community. As such we do not allow pictures with graphics or captions, pictures of firearms, pictures in which your face is not clearly visible for some reason, pictures of someone other than you by themselves, bathroom mirror selfies, or any other kind of inappropriate or explicit pictures or graphics.

Why do I have no daily matches?

We are a brand new app, just starting to get the word out. As such there may not be a lot of people on the app close to you. We’re working hard on that! In the meantime, the best way to increase your daily matches is to be generous with your preference settings, increasing the distance and age range. While you may not find someone local, you may still find inspiring people, who share their love for Jesus. We hope that learning about them is encouraging and uplifting, regardless!
