Off Campus Housing Listing

Disclaimer: This listing is intended only for Candler School of Theology students. We do not screen the renters or roommates. We are not promoting any of the listings; please take care to inquire into each situation.

Intentional Communities

Theology Group House - A Candler graduate is starting a theology group house in the summer or fall of 2016 for students studying theology, divinity, or religion. Housemates will live in community with others of diverse religious and spiritual perspectives. This is a new community, so we'll decide together on a house to rent, probably in the range of $500-$700 per person. Common life will follow guidelines that the community works out together. Share meals and life in company with people who know what you are going through. Two friendly, clean cats are part of the deal. If interested in joining or learning more, contact Shirley at

The Passion Collective - Looking for grads/post-grads interested in working through calling in life. The Passion Collective is a very exciting addition to the many wonderful programs out there. It is a "gap year" style program based in intentional community structured to uplift and hone the gifts natural to the participant. In return for housing in Midtown Atlanta, the participant will work 10-15 hours per week in the Grace House campus ministry serving Georgia Tech, Georgia State, Emory and Agnes Scott College. They will live in intentional Christian community, be challenged and uplifted, will serve alongside Pastor Matt Simpkins at the Lutheran Campus Ministry, and will follow the unusually amazing journey that God places before them while in the Passion Collective. Our desire is to seek out and lift up the passions of the participants so they can grow in that passion and see how they can use it to glorify God in their vocation. Participants will have the opportunity to be connected into their field/industry/calling in their free time as well. The program will be specifically tailored to each applicant. Applications for the Passion Collective are accepted online in late winter or early spring. After submitting online, we will be doing phone screens, and inviting those who stand out for the program to come tour the city for an in-person interview. Apply online at
