About Gladness of Heart

Founded in 2023, Gladness of Heart grew out of founder Eva Warren's own frustrations with modern dating. Most dating apps do not have the space to explain that when you select "Christian" you mean, specifically, Episcopalian and, frankly, most people on dating apps don't care enough for that level of nuance. How do you explain that yes church is important to you but no you don't think everyone else is going to Hell? How do you describe the joy of attending a weekday service without everyone looking at you like you're only there to convert them?

With Gladness of Heart you know that the people you are talking to already understand these critical issues so you can turn to the things that really matter like whether Rite I or Rite II is more your speed (this is meant only slightly in jest).

Gladness of Heart seeks to serve as your first stop in building a relationship rooted in your Episcopal faith. We serve all Episcopalians regardless of gender, race, or sexual identity. We will work with you to connect with potential future partners and look forward to celebrating your love for years to come!
