LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 7, 2014) - ChristianMingle.com, the largest and fastest growing online community for Christian singles, announced today the launch of Good Deed Dating, a service program dedicated to giving back to communities while bringing together like-minded Christians to help inspire long-lasting, faith-based relationships.

ChristianMingle is working with various service organizations to host the program's inaugural events in three cities: Los Angeles, Houston and Dallas. Good Deed Dating participants will assist these communities through various charitable channels, including volunteering at local food banks and building community gardens to aid in economic development.

"Good Deed Dating is just the start of an ongoing initiative designed to inspire charitable work across the country," said Greg Liberman, CEO of Spark Networks®, owner and operator of ChristianMingle. "The events support our mission to build and strengthen the Christian community and provide a unique opportunity for Christian singles to meet in person and build meaningful relationships based on a shared passion for giving back to those in need."

The Good Deed Dating program kicks off with the following events:

  • Saturday, Jan. 11, Los Angeles Regional Food Bank: Good Deed Dating will come to Los Angeles to serve the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Christian singles will help sort, clean and repackage healthy meals for thousands of children, families and seniors in the Los Angeles area.
