Our keynote speaker for The State of Dating 2023 is Jason Lee. Jason is a Christian, a husband, a father, a former U.S. Army officer, and an industry expert in the field of online dating. For nearly a decade, Jason has worked with dating app brands (faith-based and secular) in the realms of marketing, customer acquisition, and consulting, giving him an unparalleled look behind the scenes at how the industry operates. Additionally, Jason is the founder of Higher Bond, a Christian dating app designed for singles who value faith as the driving force behind their relationship decisions.
Jason is passionate about two main topics in this industry—creating a safe, Christ-centered, and intentional space for Christian singles and educating Church leaders and singles on what they need to know to support and stay safe in this uncertain landscape.

We are passionate about educating Christian singles about the world of online dating. As many pastors have been married for 5, 10, 20 years, it’s understandable that they may not have all of the answers about what online dating for Christians is like today. Our team is excited to come alongside churches and leaders to help fill this knowledge gap and equip singles to safely and intentionally navigate the world of online dating while keeping Christ at the center of the process.
No, attendees do not need to have a webcam or microphone access to attend the event. There will be chat options for asking questions, though, this is not a requirement to attend.
