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.
A big year ahead as Koinonia turns 75. Help us create a walkway to and a prayer garden at Clarence’s Writing Shack to celebrate this momentous occasion.
Prayer is central to our life together here at Koinonia Farm. Submit your prayer request online and know our community will pray for your intentions.
Your help to secure any items on our wish list is most appreciated.
Thursday (3/29): Koinonia Farm hosts the Sumter Area Ministerial Association’s Holy Thursday service at 12 followed by lunch. Let us know if you’re coming for lunch so we can have enough food prepared.
Friday (3/30): Reading of the Passion of the Gospel of John at 3pm in the Chapel
Saturday (3/31): Praying in the chapel throughout the day (6am-6pm)
Easter Sunday: (4/1): Sunrise service outside the chapel at 7:10am followed by breakfast. Let us know if you’re coming for breakfast so we can have enough food prepared.
We hope to see you at any or all of these Holy Week events!
Summertime is just around the corner and that means family vacations, church trips, group trips, and any excuse to leave town! Come see us at Koinonia Farm. We have plenty of space for large groups and we always have some way for you to help out on the farm. Or you can come to rest, relax, and retreat. Register your group’s summer trip today.
We are taking applications for upcoming internship terms. We have a summer term (June-August) and a fall term (September-January). Learn more and apply online.

2018 Clarence Jordan Symposium
Thanks to everyone who attended the 2018 Clarence Jordan Symposium. We had a great few days learning, discussing, fellowshipping, and connecting. As we go forward, we will remember our conversations and songs which encouraged us in our work together to build up a new world.
Koinonia Farm Turns 75!
Koinonia Farm celebrated 75 years last November and we held a birthday party and family reunion to close out the 2018 Clarence Jordan Symposium. 150 or so people came to the Farm for brunch, birthday cake, reuniting with old friends, and making new friends. Almost every decade of Koinonia’s history was represented by people who lived on and nearby the farm. It was a beautiful celebration of the legacy of Koinonia Farm and Clarence, Florence, Martin, Mabel and all those who came after them.
Springtime on the farm
Spring is here at Koinonia Farm! We have chicks in the brooder, sprouts in the greenhouse, and seeds in the ground. It’s an exciting time to walk the land and see the green grass with pops of color from the flowers. We’d love to show you around! Register for a tour or come stay a few days and help out in the garden. We always have room for you.
