Who owns Christian Mingle? A few years ago, social media blew up recently during the History Channel’s The Bible miniseries because some online dating site named Christian Mingle had the audacity to use the beloved old school Jars of Clay song, “Love Song for a Savior” in its marketing attempts. Every good Christian knew that when Jars of Clay sings, “I want to fall in love with you,” they’re referring to Jesus and not an online dating match. Gah… You want to get some Christians talking? Take one of their beloved Christian songs and use it inappropriately.
So who owns Christian Mingle? They use “our” music in their commercials, after all. Besides the basics of it being an online dating site, one of the regular questions we get about the site is about whether or not Christian Mingle is a Christian site. There are two ways we can answer that question: no and yes. Confused? Let us explain.
Is Christian Mingle owned by a specifically-Christian company? No. It is owned by Spark Networks, a company that calls itself “a leading provider of iconic, niche-focused brands.” Translation: “Christians” are just another niche they market to, along with JDate (Jewish), LDSSingles (Latter-Day Saints/Mormons), Black Singles, and Silver Singles.
This is not a problem for some people. However, for those who are leery of sites that are not specifically-owned by Christians but are matching them in relationships, then you might be averse to Christian Mingle.
But, if you are of the view that you don’t shop only with specifically-Christian companies in other areas of your life, the details of who actually owns Christian Mingle might not matter to you.
The other question that is often implied when people ask us “Who owns Christian Mingle?” is whether or not Christian Mingle is a good site for Christians to use in regards to online dating. Or, in more succinct terms, “Can a Christian find a like-minded date on Christian Mingle?”
Our answer: yes. Presently, Christian Mingle boast a registered membership of more than 9,000,000 members. If you’re just playing the numbers, chances are, you’ll find a few people in that 9,000,000 that qualify as the kind of Christian you’d at least want to go on a date with. We also can speak to this because we’ve used Christian Mingle and had successful dates with the site, and we know had SingleRoots readers who have met on Christian Mingle and gotten married.
Whether or not you find true love through any online dating site, let alone Christian Mingle, is not a matter we can speak to. While we don’t rate Christian Mingle as high as eHarmony when we evaluate the Best Online Christian Dating Sites, we do think the site has the numbers to qualify it as a major contender for helping single Christians meet.
