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.
Koinonia Family Reunion to celebrate Koinonia’s 75th Birthday takes place back at the farm on Sunday, March 11.

We recently welcomed Drew Ludwig, his wife, Janelle Tufts, and their three daughters, Casey, Leah and Courtney. Drew is pastor of Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church in Buffalo, New York and when the chance came up to do a summer sabbatical, he chose to apply for an internship at Koinonia Farm. We are so happy to have him and his family. Learn more about our internship program here.

The England family is special to all of us here at the farm. Koinonia Director Bren Dubay and John had been planning a visit at his home in Florida this fall.
