And welcome to our new website. We continue to transfer content from our old site so come back often to explore — we're almost 75 years old so there is much to transfer! Explore our site and plan a visit to our community. We are a house of hospitality and we would love to welcome you to the farm.
“Offering welcome is basic to Christian identity and character,” writes scholar Christine Pohl. Koinonia has been extending hospitality to all since 1942.
Join us in Americus, Georgia, for a gathering to celebrate Clarence Jordan’s prophetic witness by plotting how to build up a new world of peace, community, and racial justice today. In addition to keynotes from leaders of today’s God Movement, the Symposium will offer trainings in nonviolent direct action, moral fusion organizing, and sustaining practices for Christian community.
Intensive pre-symposium trainings will be offered here at the farm during the day on Thursday, March 8th.
Symposium opens Thursday evening and ends Saturday hosted by the First Baptist Church and First Methodist Church in Americus.

We are celebrating spring and new life with 12 new calves on the farm! Luna is Elsie’s new calf and she is a fun and active new addition to our farm. The other 11 calves live out with the big herd of cows who roam through the pastures and pecan orchards. It is always a blessing to have tangible reminders of new life and growth during a beautiful spring season.
Our beautiful new Paulsen Library is all set up and ready for visitors! The library has beautiful handcrafted shelves and tables made from wood harvested from the farm and from the old dining hall. There are many comfortable places to sit and read. We still have plenty of shelves to fill and would love any new or gently used books you have to send our way. Mail them to us at 1324 GA Hwy 49 S, Americus, GA 31719 or drop them off at the farm next time you come to visit.
The plan is to renovate the Frances Warren House (our old library). We will keep you posted. A special thanks to the Scheibner and Paulsen family and for all the donations and hard work from the whole Koinonia family — friends, members, interns, neighbors and guests.
Jubilee Partners came recently for a working retreat for their community. It was great to have them at the farm. They were even greeted by a double rainbow as we all gathered for a bonfire, singing and storytelling.
