CeCe Winans has found a unique way to grow the size of her church congregation – set up single members with each other.

Dozens of parishioners have coupled up and started long-term relationships at Nashville Life Church, which Winans started with her husband, Alvin Love II, about six years ago.

“My husband has married, oh, I don’t know how many people. Now we’re having a lot of babies at Nashville Life,” she added with a laugh.

Turns out the pastors have a hand in creating these families. Single men and women there often get a nudge toward romance from Winans and her husband.

“More like a shove!” said Nashville Life worship music director Dwan Hill, who married a fellow congregant, Laura, three years ago.

Dwan Hill, 32, is a founding member of the church, and he became the music director before Laura, 35, started coming to Nashville Life.
