To qualify for missionary housing, applicants must be:
- Currently under appointment with the IMB and,
- Currently receiving salary and benefits from the IMB.
Missionary housing is provided rent-free, but is reported as income on a 1099 Form for tax purposes. Utilities are charged each month to missionaries on a flat-rate basis. Assignments will be made based on availability. Missionaries are encouraged to make application at least one to two years in advance of their intended stateside assignment. Requests for missionary housing can be made by email to [email protected].
Availability is limited and preference will be given to students enrolled in the seminary for a minimum of eight semester hours. Missionary Commuter Housing is exempt from this requirement and may be used by missionaries for short stays.
Occupancy of missionary housing is not to exceed two continuous semesters. Verification of IMB status will be required.
