It’s bigger than just dating

Gather’s Mission

Deepen your relationship with God

and each other

Our Values

The Faith is at the core of everything we do.

The Faith tells us that we are made in the image and likeness of God, and that humans are to be treated with dignity. That applies at the individual and relationship level.
We believe these three core values are what it means to build relationships within the context of a relationship with God.


To build any relationship, we must first be ourselves — honestly and openly


Relationships are not built or maintained passively. They must be intentionally cared for.


All relationships have ups and downs. We must be committed to making it work, no matter what.
Our Principles

Our values are the Church’s values.

We seek to do God’s Will in everything we do, especially in our work to build a great dating product.


Pursue God.

Love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.


Pursue each other.

Love your neighbor as yourself, whether romantically, platonically, or however else.


Keep the Faith.

Trust God and His timing. He works in mysterious ways. Be His hands.


Pray for others.

Do not focus so much on yourself that you forget to care for others.
Our Approach

The Gather Difference

Detailed Profiles

Gather profiles are include more details than normal dating profiles, allowing you to get a better sense of the person, leading to better matching and chats.

Detailed Profiles

Answer three prompts to activate your profile, and switch them up any time. We review our prompts and keep the ones that are most likely to get you out on a date.

Conversation Starters

Our research found that liking specific pictures or prompts leads to better matches and more dates than liking a profile in general. So now users must like a specific part of a Gather profile—they can even add a comment to their like to kickstart a conversation.

Matchmaking Algorithm

Gather uses a sophisticated algorithm to suggest the best people for you, leading to better matches and more dates. Gather users are 3x as likely to get a match as on other leading dating apps.

Meaningful Likes

Research has shown us that eight is the magic number. When our members had more free likes per day, their matches were worse. When they had fewer, they were paying to send more. So now everyone gets eight for free.

Transparent Likes

No anonymous likes—we show you who has liked you, so you don’t miss out on a potential match.

How We Do Things

Building a company isn’t easy and certainly not glamorous. While we’re bound to fail in many ways, we always strive to keep the Faith and serve our users as well as we can.
