Big Church Review
Big Church is one of the most popular dating sites that specialize in catering to people of faith, and its popularity continues to grow. However, it isn’t an online dating site built on faith and promises alone. It has a strong backbone of services. They hold their own against any of the best secular dating sites out there. It does have one major drawback, but, overall, as we’ll shortly explain, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by checking it out.
We’ll start with the bad and end with the mostly good news about BigChurch.com. The only bad thing I can say about it is that you cannot see most profiles before upgrading from a free account. You can do free localized searches, but you won’t see full-profile details except for a few select members. Premium subscribers can pay an extra fee to allow everyone, including free members, to see their complete profiles. Very popular profiles can also earn special viewing privileges without upgrading.

Now that that’s out the way, I have so many nice things to say about the site. Being able to see the date that a given member last logged in is equally as important as being able to read a profile. On this point, the site delivers. The last login date is easily visible in search results. Even if you can’t read profiles, at least you’ll be able to see how many people logged in during the past day. That’s usually a good indication of how popular a site is in your area.
What’s more, it’s free to reply to messages from paid members. That should encourage you to try the site out and see if anyone decides to contact you. However, it should also serve as an encouragement to signup for a paid subscription. After all, you’ll be able to initiate emails and instant messages with any member, regardless of his or her level of membership. You’ll know that you can get a response without the other person having to pay any money.
When it comes to additional services, there are many ways to be part of the BigChurch community. There are personal blogs. There’s an online magazine with member-submitted articles. There are message boards and group chat rooms. Best of all, you know that given the site’s audience, you won’t have to worry about inappropriate language or subjects.
Sometimes when a site caters to a special group of people, it fails to live up to the usual standards. However, Big Church is a great site without a doubt. It’s a real chance for online fellowship as well as safe Christian dating.
