About Christian Housing

Behold how good
and how pleasant it is
for brethren
to dwell together
in unity.
- Psalm 133:1

Since 2001, Christian Housing has been used to connect Christians who want to "dwell together in unity."

The users, such as yourself, are segmented in various ways.
One important factor is whether you are looking to relocate or if you are sharing your existing home.
Another is how much space you are willing to share, versus what rooms you would want to use exclusively.
"Dwelling together" may not go as far as sharing the same bathroom,
but it does mean that you'll be fellowshipping in some way,
to "encourage and build one another up" (1 Thessalonians 5:11).

How it works

Follow these simple steps to connect with a future flatmate.

Register on the website

Register for free.
Maybe you're an empty nester with a few bedrooms and an extra bathroom who is open to a small family sharing a home with you. Maybe you're the mobile one (or ones) with flexibility about where you live. Perhaps you'll even find someone else who is looking to move, who you connect with, and you feel comfortable supporting each other in a Christ-filled home atmosphere. This network may be just what you were searching for.

Add information about yourself

Post information about yourself. Give the other seekers as much of a background as possible. The website will immediately connect you with those in your area who seem to meet your qualifications. If you are in the stable grouping, rather than the mobile group, then you will also have the opportunity to list what resources are either exclusive to your future flatmate or shared with you.

Analyze the list of people

Filter people out by seeing the last time they were on the website. Trim your list down. Request to see their contact information, and then use discretion about how and when to contact them. The first two (2) contact information queries are complimentary, but we ask for $20 beyond that or if you do connect, both to support the website and to serve as a deterrent against information harvesting. If you do not have $20, please let potential flatmates know your financial predicament before moving in.

Make your connections

Find a time to ask each other questions about your lifestyles, hobbies, history, preferred home environment, or anything else that would be appropriate.
Be yourself!
Have the confidence to decline an invitation if you don't feel it would be a good fit.
Be respectful if the other party says no or wants to pray about it. When you connect with your roommates (or flatmates), set up the rules of the household, such as the ways of paying the bills on time and splitting the chores. If you have some hobbies in common, find a way to make use of those connections to fellowship. Dwell together in unity!

Success stories

Below are some of the emails we have received from thankful participants!

Wow!!! I was struggling on finding Christians listed on Roommate searches, as everybody was listing "N/A" under their religion. Your site is such a blessing... praying that you have much success & that we find a few Christian brothers to share my house rental!! God Bless

Lance

Thank you for your kind words. May the good Lord continue to bless this Christian service. This can help Christians live together as room mates and be a blessing to each other. I do hope more people can see the great benefit in all this. May the presence of the good Lord be with you always.

Maya Keswani

I know it is by God's grace that I came across this website. I always wondered if there was a Christian roommate matching service. Thank you for all you do.

Michele Blemur

I was desperate, looking for a house and all of a sudden the spirit said type in Christian Landlord, when I did, this is one of the listings that came up under that site. ... It's nice to know there are Christian Landlords banded together in an organization like this. God bless you.

Sheryl

We think your website is fantastic and we have referred many people to check it. I pray that you will be empowered to continue this vital ministry. On behalf of Moody Northwest, we express our appreciation of your excellent labor.

"I like getting your newsletters, because then I know how to pray for you. And I've told several of my friends about you to spread the word. I'll be brainstorming some more ideas and e-mail them to you guys.

Rachel Hiser

I am an international student who needs to move around the USA frequently. A Christian Housing service would definitely help us, especially in ministering the Gospel. I really thank God for your guys' service!

Thanks to you I've got a great new roommate already. I appreciate your service... My new roommate came into town--went online looking for a Christian roommate in Denver and...we connected. It's been great! Thanks for your service!!
