Many churches, such as Redeemer Presbyterian Church, provide bulletin boards, newsletters or other resources appropriate for roommate wanted advertisements. Additionally, church social networks provide excellent resources for spreading word of mouth information about someone searching for a roommate.

ChristianRoommates.com offers a paid-access roommate search that includes individuals with apartments or homes that need roommates, as well as individuals looking for roommates and places to rent. The service charges a sliding-scale donation for a four-month membership and offers discounts for individuals in hardship situations.

ChristianHousing.org provides free profile creation upon acceptance of the company's terms, which includes agreement with a statement of faith and a declaration of regular church attendance. The website includes profiles from roommates looking for housing and roommates with space available, as well as landlords with various spaces to rent. The website asks for donations from users that successfully find housing, tenants or roommates using the website.

General roommate resources, such as Craigslist and newspapers, allow individuals searching for roommates to create ads that describe what the person hopes to find in a roommate. Individuals seeking a Christian roommate can specify this requirement in their ads.
