Join us Online or In Person in Nashville

HODC NASH is a Friday, Saturday, 2-day event where Christian singles will gather together from all across the globe to make friends, feel not alone, and discover new dating tools that will actually help them find clarity, health, renewed hope, and joy in their dating lives.


Are you tired of hearing ONE message a year (if that) from your pastor about dating? Not sure how to navigate online dating, ghosting, or other dynamics the modern dating world brings? Does knowing HOW and WHERE to meet quality, Christian singles feel hopeless? Do you feel lost on how to date as a Christian in this post-pandemic, social-media-driven world of 2023?

We’re here for you!


with single christians

Our yearly Heart of Dating Conference is back-virtually AND IN PERSON!

The Heart of Dating Conference NASH, led by Kait and JJ Tomlin, brings together top pastors, speakers, authors, thought leaders in the relationship and dating space to create an event that is all about HOPE mixed with PRACTICAL DATING ADVICE.

Join Kait and JJ and thousands of singles from around the world for practical dating advice, insightful discussions, Holy Spirit worship, new friendships, and FUN!

"It was ultimately super encouraging to my faith, more so than just engaging with my singleness and dating life. The worship on Saturday night was unexpected and beyond incredible. The Lord did some amazing liberating work in me that evening. I came to Atlanta expectant, and honestly had NO IDEA the Lord would liberate me from a longstanding soul tie like He did. What a blessing of a weekend!!!!"


"Overall, I just feel more at peace and content in my singleness. I feel like I can be truly happy for my friends that are in that married/kids stage of life instead of saying woe is me. I left the conference feeling more confident in this time to really live my story and not worry about what stage everyone else thinks I should be in."


"I definitely heard Gods voice during worship for the first time in 3.5 years after trying to run away from the Lord. I can’t stop listening to worship music and reading my Bible. It’s literally a revival in my life and a real heart change. I don’t really even care about the dating. I’m just glad I have my relationship with the Lord back. "

"Overall the HODC has been the single best Christian dating conference I have ever attended. Great content, great community in the forums, all very relevant and practical. I attended virtually and y'all had superb coordination of the entire virtual event."


"I haven’t felt Gods presence in a such a long time, and He was there the entire weekend. He revealed so many struggles I didn’t know I was dealing with through the speakers, the worship night, and from others I didn’t know that God used to speak to me through strangers. Praise God! I am so thankful I was apart of our own “mini revival “ with singles hungry for God’s spirit! I can’t wait for next year!!! I’m bringing all my friends with me next year!"


"It was also SO nice to be around like minded people since I don’t have that sense at community at my current church in Chicago. In fact, I feel called to find a new church where I can get around more like minded people to do life with."


"The conference has encouraged me as an older single guy and given me single life/dating practical advice to use.  The conference has equipped me as a single man."
