Since 1942, people from all backgrounds have been visiting Koinonia (pronounced Coy No Knee Uh) and since the 1950s we've been shipping products through our mail order business, which today includes pecans, chocolate, and much more. Learn about our history, our community life and work today, and how you can get involved by visiting, interning, or donating!
Welcome to Koinonia Farm!
Since our founding in 1942, we have welcomed and shared with anyone and everyone regardless of race, religion, no religion, background or anything else that divides people. We are an Intentional Christian community with a rich history — from the Jordans and the Englands founding the farm, to the bullets, bombs, and boycotts of the mid century, to launching the Partnership Housing Movement that became Habitat for Humanity, and the birthing of many, many other projects. Explore our site and plan a visit — we are a house of hospitality with plenty of guest rooms. We would love to welcome you to the farm!
Some of What We Do
Meet the Members of the Community
As I walked around the pond one day after lunch, this thought came to me: though we gathered at Camp Loucon from all over, our common home is the wounds of our Healer. We can become vulnerable because Jesus allows us to dwell in his vulnerability.
I was struck by Clarence’s words that “you can’t put Christianity into practice. You can’t make it work … For Christianity is not a system you work – it is a Person who works you. You don’t get it; he gets you.”
I think if we are so full of ourselves or the words of others, we may miss the Word. So, we listen. We seek fellowship with the Word. We, too, want to be with him, follow him, know him, and love him. We are open to being changed by this fellowship with him. We are open to “being gotten” by the Word.
Koinonia Grow partners with Healthy Sumter at Koinonia Farm, Brookdale Park Community Garden, and the Jimmy Carter Boyhood Home.
