Communication

There are many ways for you to communicate with members at BigChurch.com. Unless the member has a Platinum membership, you must signup for a membership to contact them. You can send members different Icebreakers, which are short multiple choice questions to start your conversation. This is a no pressure way to start communicating. When you are ready to get more personal with your match, you can email them using BigChurch.com's secure and safe email system.

You can also let another member know if you are interested in their profile by clicking on the "Are You Interested?" link. Another way to show interest is by clicking the "Like It?" link next to a member's profile photo if you like them. You can bookmark a profile to show the member that you wish to talk to them later and they will be notified that you bookmarked their profile. Another unique way to start communicating with members is by praising their posts on The Congregation wall. They will again be notified that you praised their post.

It's obviously been quite some time since this review was penned because the layout, ownership and goal(s) for this particular FriendFinder site has changed considerably. The current ownership of this site feels it's good business to run ads for their sister sites that promote casual and deviant sex. Keep in mind, this site is suppose to be religiously based.
