Koinonia--vision, mission, history & partnership
Encouraging students to pursue the fullness of Christ
College students are the politicians, business leaders, and teachers of tomorrow. We want them to gain a full understanding of the Christian faith today so they can carry a biblical worldview into their future careers. Koinonia strives to have a God glorifying impact on the Clarion University campus and ultimately the world!
- To share the transforming power of Christ with the Clarion University community.
- To establish students in a maturing faith in Christ.
- To equip students to embrace a lifestyle of servant leadership.
- To send out students who model the life changing love of Christ, impacting the church, community and world.
Koinonia began in 1967 when a few students who were seeking growth in the Christian faith approached some Clarion County community members for help. The small group grew from a Bible study to a larger Christian fellowship where it became necessary to bring on staff members. We’ve grown leaps and bounds since those early days and our students now not only attend Bible studies but outreach events, missions' trips, conferences and more. Thousands of students’ lives have been touched by Koinonia.
Koinonia partners with Coalition for Christian Outreach (CCO).
