HOW CAN CHURCHES AND ORGANIZATIONS GET INVOLVED?
We believe in the church being ONE body, serving our community as a whole. We are looking for partners to help accomplish this God-sized goal to better our town. At this stage in the project, our primary need is financial partnerships. City Station is a non-profit, tax deductible organization. Donations can be made by clicking here.

Also, we will need volunteers for the work of the City Station, and we need to get the message out to our community through His church. We are excited about what God is doing in and through the obedience of His church in the Carroll County Community. This is the perfect opportunity for His people to come together regardless of race, economic status, or denomination.

HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
First and foremost, prayer is essential to the success of City Station. Additionally, we need volunteers who would like to be a part of making this vision a reality. If you would like to explore ways you can get involved, please e-mail us at info@citystation.org.

IS MY DONATION TAX DEDUCTIBLE?
Your donation to the City Station is 100% tax deductible.  City Station is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.  All funds received will be allocated completely to the success of City Station.

WHAT IS COVENANT HOUSING?
The residents of City Station Housing will commit to a lifestyle based on Biblical principles. City Station Housing will provide a safe, secure, and nurturing environment so that each resident’s relationship with Christ will be actively cultivated. Residents will be individuals seeking a place where they can live out their faith in Jesus Christ and take advantage of all the amenities and ministries that City Station offers. Following a Christian lifestyle includes growing in the practice of the Christian spiritual disciplines like Bible study, prayer, fellowship, worship, and service to others. Also, residents will strive to avoid behaviors that could detract from their own spiritual growth or from other residents at City Station. These behaviors include the use of abusive, destructive and vulgar speech; addictions to any kind of substance, activity or relationship; participation in sexual relationships outside of marriage; the viewing of pornographic or indecent media; or the use or possession of any alcoholic beverages, tobacco, or illegal drugs while on City Station property. Each resident will live in a quad style dorm with an additional 2 other residents and a mentor. The mentor will disciple the 3 residents under the direction of Southern Hills Christian Church leadership.

DO I GET TO PICK MY ROOMMATES?
Each 4 bedroom unit will have one pre-assigned mentor. When you complete your online application, you can request two other people you would like to room with. It is helpful if these people put the same names on their application. Requesting roommates is not a guarantee of living with those people, but we will do our best. If you do not request roommates, we may have you answer a short questionnaire later to determine which other applicants would be a good fit for you to room with. 

HOW DO I APPLY FOR STUDENT HOUSING?
Simply visit the website citystationhousing.org and choose, "Vacancies" then apply for a vacancy. There will be a $35 fee for each applicant. If the student lacks financial history, we may ask for a guarantor (parent) to fill out an application as well, and guarantee funds.

ARE APARTMENTS CO-ED?
In our efforts to offer Covenant Housing, City Station will not offer co-ed housing. We believe having males and females living in the same apartment will bring on un-due temptations. This applies to siblings as well.
