SGS Member’s Testimonials

Hello!

First, I want to say thank you for building and maintaining this site. God has used it to bless me so (unbelievably!) greatly. I met my husband here; we were married in April. Both my husband and his brother were married through SGS within 3 weeks of one another- it has been an exciting year! Would you change my expired account to a "met on SGS" account please? When I was here as a single person, it was very encouraging to me to see the accounts of those whom God had led to spouses through this website, and I would like our 'story' to be encouraging to others as well- and to have the opportunity to give glory to God for what he has done! Thank you.

In Christ, Lorisha, username "shepherdess"

 

I just wanted to update you to let you know that the young man that I met through SGS and I have just been married July 31, 2011 after meeting July 2, 2010! We are so blessed to come together as like minded believers, seeking to live for Christ, and we consider each other a gift from God. We serve a great God who is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or think (Eph. 3:20) and He can use ANY means to do so! Please share with SGS as an encouragement to singles.

Blessings,

Joanna

 

“God bless you tons ! ---I am sharing this website with many in Pakistan ..... Regards, Rumasa”

 

Hello Dean, thank you for providing a safe place for Christian singles--this is the first and only singles group I've been in. Thank you for the 10-day free trial.

 

I am courting Peppermint and we don't use SGS that much any more. I thought I would let you know why I wasn't going to be renewing. I also wanted to thank you and everyone who keeps SGS going. It has enabled me to meet a wonderful woman who has the same beliefs as I do.

I appreciate it greatly,

-S

 

"As a Reformed Believer, I no longer waste my time with Christiancafe. Many of their members are very Theologically confused."

 

“…thanks for all you have done in running the site and making it the best place to meet like minded people. I have met some really nice men and women!”

 "Thanks again for such opportunities as the SGS website. I've made awesome friends!!! The Lord has been using this site is sooo many positive ways in my life. I just wanted you to know. May the Lord richly bless you and your ministry."

 

"Is there anything that the questionnaire didn’t cover?: True story: I am currently teaching ESL in Asia. The unit topic for the next two weeks is 'dating'and there is a section about 'online dating.' So I went to research the topic myself and came across this site. Amidst the plethora of not-so-helpful online dating sites that I researched, I was (pleasantly) surprised to see a site that actually had a 'user agreement' pertaining to doctrine. Who knew?! So I decided to sign up for 10 days to learn about this scene firsthand and relate whatever I learn to my dear students. (Although I'm not so sure they'd come to this one first. Small language barrier, among other things.) So whoever reads this, greetings from Asia!"

 

Thank you for all your work on this website. You have done some very good work to put SGS together. I have given thanks to God for its establishment and will continue to pray that the Lord uses it and to let others know of its existence. Sincerely in Christ, Boyd- OPC Pastor

 

"Sovereign Grace Singles is the best place I know, on the internet, for Reformed minded Christian singles to meet."

I also want to thank you for making this web site available - especially at my age and being in a smaller community, it is very difficult to meet single reformed men. Thanks!

Dean, I don't know if you've had many success stories or not, but thought you might enjoy one. This weekend reformed_lady and I became engaged. The wedding will either be 12/31/05 or 1/14/06. I'll keep you posted.

 

Thanks for being the instrument God used to bring us together!

David

I am very excited for SGS. I see it having lots of potential to do great things for likeminded persons for all kinds of purposes

 

Hey Dean,

I wanted to tell you that another member here (or former member) Regenerated and I are engaged to be married this May/June. I wanted to thank you for your site as this is where I met her!

Jeff

 

 Seriously, one of my rare moments too, my sincere thanks for referring me to this site and for your running it, in whatever role or capacity that is, forgive me my lack of complete comprehension of your daily duties with respect to all these Calvinistic cuties!. The messaging back and forth to members has been most enervating, a great blessing and plain fun

 

 I must say that I was so pleased to find your site. I have been on other singles sites and it is so discouraging because 99.9% of the singles are out for fun and games and hardly anyone truly believes in the sovereignty of God. It is a breath of fresh air to read the profiles on your site.

A.

 

 By the way, I am enjoying the interaction on the site. I am actually finding mature believers, male & female, to share ideas with - and to minister to! I was overjoyed to find a singles site for reformed believers. Thank you very much for making it possible!

Hi Dean,

I began membership last year with only the intention of meeting eligible gentlemen. However, I have found this site to be far richer than that. I have corresponded with a number of other believers, male and female, who have been a great source of encouragement, edification, guidance, and protection. I did not anticipate these blessings from a forum such as this, namely the chat room. So thank you. Keep up the good work.

Sincerely, D.

Oh yes. I have to agree. I have been having some great conversations with people. But then again, that is the way you are supposed to meet someone...Through Godly fellowship? It seems perfect.

 

My only concern is that I am becoming a SGS junkie!

 

Dear Dean, thank you SOOOOO much for creating this site. I have been having such a hard time finding a guy who loves the Scriptures like I do and appreciates the doctrines of grace.

Thank you dear Brother in Christ for setting up a dating site for fellow Reformed believers. I have had membership in most of the better known so called Christian sites, and been thoroughly disappointed. Not just with the membership itself, but with the many in them that claim Christ. It seems that the vast majority of men and women that frequent them, especially the chat rooms, are anything but true converted people. I attend a small Reformed Baptist Family church in Oregon, and its so hard to find like minded folks online (nigh impossible) at the many dating links. I look forward to spending some time and Lord willing perhaps find a fellow believer here for friendship and company.

 

I just wanted to say that this site feels like an oasis in the desert of meaningless singles web-site. I feel like people are real with who they are & that we can band together in prayer.

Thanks. By the way, I have really been blessed by meeting a woman from this site. Thank you for having this website available. A friend of mine badgered me for a long time before I gave in and posted my bio here. I really did not expect to meet anyone. God truly does work in mysterious ways.

Pat

 

Hi there, I must say, thank you for creating it. It is very seldom I find a place where I meet like minded individuals.

 

Oh, and by the way...THANK YOU! For all the work you have done here on SGS. Praise be to God for introducing me to a WONDERFUL man through this site. I am looking forward to meeting Josh face to face!

 

Hey Dean, just wanted you to know the site is great! It does not feel like just a dating site but a nice place to meet new people both men and women. Thanks for having the vision to create this Dean!

I have been reading through profile after profile - Dean! I am so impressed. There are so many truly wonderfully delightful and mature Christian brothers and sisters on this site.

 

It is hard to put into words the difference that SGS is to the -Christian online dating- world. Having been on two of the many such sites, I find this is so, so distinct and different. The caliber of people are so much deeper and actually readers of Scripture and deep theological works! It is amazing!

Gratefully,

A D

 

I will pray that God will bless this site and all of us that use it. Blessings to you from Australia Rosa

 

 This place has a hearty and sound sense of humor combined with people who still respect and honor their Lord in conversation and conduct. Wonderful stuff, God be praised.

 

Thank you Dean! And thank you so much for this wonderful site. I have made some dear friends already! God bless you Sister Sue

 

I just quickly want to thank you for this website. I have made lots of new friends and am so blessed to be able to communicate with other Christians on a daily basis. Sincerely,

PKB: Hey Dean, just wanted you to know the site is great! It doesn't feel like just a "dating" site but a nice place to meet new people both men and women. Thanks for having the vision to create it!

 

Jerseygal: Yes Dean, I have met some wonderful reformed people. Thanks for the good work.

 

"I am going to a singles' retreat (Passion4Christ summit on the SGS events) at the end of October. Do you have some SGS info/brochures that I could bring and place on the information table? This website has been such a blessing; I want to pass it on to others! Thanks! R."

 

Thank you for all your hard work into making SGS a wondeful place! I can say two of us in my family have found wonderful godly Reformed Christians through your site. :)   Thanks again!

“The one thing SGS has going for it that no other site does, is the ability to interact with everyone who is a member...fostering friendships and connections that might otherwise never have happened. I've been blessed greatly by SGS over the years.”

 

"also want to thank you for providing the means in which I met my husband. I have found the one whom my soul loves. (Song of Solomon 3:4) Life is so sweet with him and it got sweeter 6 months ago with the birth of our daughter!! Thank you! Lynette"

 

"Thanks for your encouragement Dean. I'm also glad to see the emergence of sovereign grace singles. I've already sent someone the link! May God bless your service for his glory! Dave"

 

"I'll be at a wedding on 3/26 for a couple that met on SGS. I encouraged the young woman, Cara, to sign up, she did and met Scott, whose pastor had urged him to sign up. Beautiful couple with great testimonies. Dominic Aquila"

 

"There are a LOT more details to this story and I can always share them later, but I just wanted to drop you a quick note about a "success story" from the site. I didn't expect I'd actually meet my wife from this site. I mean, that's why I signed up initially, but never REALLY expected it to end up working out for me. God, as is so often the case, had different plans. Kenny"

 

"This is the only internet singles site where I find myself impressed (and even challenged) by member's comments in terms of the depth of their Christian experience and their ability to articulate their beliefs and desires. Christine"

 

"I am new to the discussion of Reformed Theology and I am in complete agreement with the above statement... especially the portion, "What we mean by "Church"". Only a few months ago did I begin to sense the Lord tugging on my heart to seek deeper truth than what was being presented before me each church service. I have since attended a Southern Baptist Church and teh message of "Grace" has become louder than ever. Your above statement has left me with a sense of understanding about what the Lord has been showign me. Thank you so much and God Bless your organization !!!"

 

"I also want to thank you for providing the means in which I met my husband. I have found the one whom my soul loves. (Song of Solomon 3:4) Life is so sweet with him and it got sweeter 6 months ago with the birth of our daughter!! Thank you! Lynette"

 

"I'll be at a wedding on 3/26 for a couple that met on SGS. I encouraged the young woman, Cara, to sign up, she did and met Scott, whose pastor had urged him to sign up. Beautiful couple with great testimonies. Dominic Aquila"

 

"Bro, you're seriously awesome. This is how I know that SGS is a ministry, not just a business. Blessings. Soli Deo Gloria. Dennis"

 

“The site is amazing and SO needed in this world of trying to find reformed Christians to fellowship with. I am a member of a Sovereign Grace church in Spokane.”

 

“I've tried out E-Harmony for the last number of months and have been shown it is really not a good fit.”

 

"I have found my Love on your site. We will be married this month on the 31st. I'm grateful for your site and it has been wonderful meeting a lot of nice Reformed people. Thanks, Angela D."

 

"Dean... I'd love for you to meet Greg, my husband. Just so you know there have been three people that have been married in our church that met on SGS. Pretty cool, huh!"

 

"As of July 10, we are engaged to be married after having met on this site. Thank the Lord for using you in our lives! God is so good! Elaine"

 

"This is the only internet singles site where I find myself impressed (and even challenged) by member's comments in terms of the depth of their Christian experience and their ability to articulate their beliefs and desires. Christine"

 

When my parents adopted me from Ukraine, I came over to America. I had no friends except for a couple of young people in my church. When I discovered Sovereign Grace Singles, I found distinctively Reformed Christian friends from all over the world. It has been such a blessing to build up relationships through SGS. The site is not a mere dating site, as some might presume, but truly a fellowship place for singles, and a safe community where you can carry each other's burdens and share each other's joys. SGS has also helped me mature as Christian young lady and the site's administrators have been wonderfully instrumental in my daily growth in grace. Alexandria Muether

Hi Dean,

 

Beau wrote: "Sir, as a Reformed Baptist who has recently married another Reformed Baptist, and both of us having met on SovereignGraceSingles (thank you, Dean, you have made me one happy hombre!), I do have strong opposition to infant baptism doctrinally, just as my beloved presbyterian friends have strong opposition to credobaptism doctrinally (I attend Westmisnter Seminary California - I have heard all of the, "you're not really Reformed," "you're not really a Christian," "you do not go to a real church...", etc., but I do not associate every paedobaptist with that kind of asinine arrogance and disrespect, nor do I return it based on the few who treat me like the reprobate enemy). Point being, it's one thing to have strong doctrinal difference that, while important, are not worth the kind of above commentary and approach. I have a world of respect for many paedo friends and think they are striking examples to me of honor and truth and godliness among men, and I can hold to this perspective without embracing some kind of perfection doctrine (meaning I do think they are wrong in the area of baptism). I am sorry that this man is a fool and has acted as dishonorably as he has - please do not think that all of us RBs are anything like that!! Yes we hold doctrine seriously, as do the paedobaptists, but that does not entail this kind of attitude from either of us. I have been very blessed, even recently, in sitting down in very respectful contexts and discussing, for hours at a time with my paedo seminary friends, this important doctrine. We hear each other out and test each other by the Word of God and in our fallibility and imperfection we cannot come to unanimous agreement, but we agree to disagree after having made and defended our positions and then drink a few beers, smoke a stoagie, then talk about the MASSIVE amount of things we do in fact agree on. That's beautiful to me, absolutely! Lord bless my paedobaptist friends, and Lord bless you, Sir, again, for making my marriage happen in God's providence. Thank you for the site - we have considered opening up a mutual account as one of the "met and married here" groups for purposes of fellowship and support for the medium that God ordained for my wife and myself to, but at this time we are having enough difficulty paying our bills and all of my Biola undergrad loans (sigh - I loved my udnergrad education, but man it is hard to handle when those loan repayments start showing up!), so plan on seeing us at some point in the near future! Lord bless you, Sir! Soli Deo Gloria, my brother! Beau McKinley Boyd"
