Host families needed

Host families needed

Dear Gaston Christian families,

The GCS International Student program is still in need of host families for the 2019-2020 school year! We are still receiving applications from male students for next year and we need families who are willing to welcome them into their homes.

New Oasis International Education, one of our premier student agencies, is offering families $150 for applying to host a male student for the next school year. Our host families receive $1,100 every month to help cover the student’s expenses such as housing, food & transportation. All other costs incurred are covered by the student’s natural parents.

If this is a ministry you feel your family would be interested in or would simply like more information about, please contact Karen Brooks at kbrooks@gastonchristian.org or our TBI/New Oasis Homestay agency coordinator, Amanda Knight, at aknight@tbiedu.comThis promotion lasts from now until Friday, April 19th.

As a side note, since we now have to offer 2 host family options to each student and their natural parents, there is no guarantee that you will be matched with a student. You do not have to be matched to receive the bonus.

If you’re interested in hosting a male student and would like to qualify for the $150 sign-up bonus, please follow the steps below.

  1.  Fill out the New Oasis International Education host family application and a background check online. https://newoasisedu.com/homestay360/host-family-application/
  2. Once your background check clears, our homestay coordinator Amanda Knight, will make an in-home visit and complete a host family profile.
  3. Once you are approved to host, you will receive $150.00!

Upon approval from New Oasis, each family will also complete the GCS Host Family application and the background check links provided below. GCS also requires a pastor’s reference letter and 2 personal reference letters.  (See attached.)

GCS Elementary students signed banners for Autumn (2nd-grader) who is home recovering from a surgical procedure. The banners were presented by Mrs. Renfroe’s class to Autumn’s grandmother. Thank you to Image360 Gastonia owner and fellow 2nd-grade parents Tim and Joy Henderson for the banners. We love and miss you, Autumn.
