Thank you for taking the time to provide a reference. Your opinion matters and is critically important to the application review process. Please know that no information you provide will be given to any third parties. Only the Koinonia team that makes decisions about who is invited to participate in the Come, Stay Awhile, & Serve program will view your recommendation.

For the purposes of providing a recommendation, we hope this may be of help to you:

  • Since our founding in 1942, Koinonia has welcomed and shared with anyone and everyone regardless of race, religion, no religion, background, or anything else that divides people
  • There is a variety of physical work on the farm both outside and inside. We usually work six days a week or some portion there of.
  • We want to be sure that those selected for the program will be emotionally and physically “safe” and capable of giving, as well as growing.
  • In addition to the work, participants are encouraged, but not required, to be a part of other aspects of our community life. There are shared meals, daily chapel services, a weekly Gathered Worship, discussion groups, and plenty of fellowship, which all helps participants to immerse themselves and more fully experience life in community.
