BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2013) -, the largest and fastest growing online community for Christian singles, has teamed with H.I.S. BridgeBuilders, a Dallas-based ministry that helps restore urban communities. In this partnership, ChristianMingle and H.I.S. BridgeBuilders join forces to host charitable events and cultivate social experiences in the Dallas metropolitan area. 

"At ChristianMingle, our goal is to foster strong relationships within the Christian community and this partnership enables us to extend those connections offline," says Ashley Reccord, community manager at ChristianMingle. "Working with this influential ministry also empowers our members to give back to the communities that God has built for us."

H.I.S. BridgeBuilders is a ministry that unites Christians across cities to advance urban restoration through education, health, economic and spiritual development. The ministry is focused on building bridges that connect individuals to one another and to God to help successfully rebuild generationally underprivileged urban communities.

Mark Gaither, director of marketing and communications for H.I.S. BridgeBuilders, adds, "Our model thrives when leading organizations, such as ChristianMingle, pool resources to create a greater impact within the communities we mutually serve. While our network spans corporations, nonprofits, government agencies and more, our relationship with ChristianMingle is elevated by our shared devotion to the gospel and helps bring our vision to life."

As the inaugural proof point marking this new collaboration, ChristianMingle will work with H.I.S. BridgeBuilders to plant urban gardens in low-income communities in South Dallas. These gardens will help bring healthful food options to impoverished communities that have restricted access to grocery stores.
