We understand the uncertainty surrounding your home during extended absences. You have found a great place to live, near your ministry, but are concerned about leaving the house empty for an extended period. The cost of rent and utilities for the months away also weighs heavily on your minds.
Oikonomos Stewards share the cost of keeping your house or apartment while you are away. They live in the unit and are required to engage with the local church. They are vetted and trained based on the unique requirements of your area and your home.
Lead-time: For best results, Oikonomos International would like to receive requests 12 months prior to need. This allows time for identifying Stewards, planning and conducting training, and organizing travel. We can, if necessary, respond to shorter leadtimes, but that reduces our flexibility and our ability to support your needs.
Through the application, you tell us what you need, and when you need it. You tell us about your home, your community, and your church. We will use this information to select and prepare the Stewards to live in the local community of your city.
Please note, Oikonomos International is NOT a Security Service. If you live in a high-risk / high threat area, we will not be able to provide Stewards.
