Why Missions?

We believe missions fulfill the Great Commission commanded by Jesus. The call to make disciples locally and globally.
Acts 1:8 calls us “to the ends of the earth”. Practically speaking we know we are not all called to go live in Africa, but some are.

  • The call to missions is fulfilled through the mantra Pray, Give, and Go.
  • We are to pray for the nations, we are to support and give generously to building God’s kingdom worldwide, and we are called go to the ends of the earth.
  • Missions help connect us to what is going on in the world and to see the bigger picture of God’s kingdom.
  • Seeing what is happening in another context and in our local community creates the opportunity to gain new perspective and inspiration to serve and love Him more.

How We Partner?

How do we decide to who to support?
With so many wonderful ministries and missionaries, it is impossible to support them all! Some years ago, our staff and elder board identified three guiding principles for missions support.
We want to partner with GOSPEL- CENTERED people and organizations that focus on the following:

Building the Church

Koinonia partners with other ministries to plant churches and train a new generation of leaders.


Koinonia partners with other ministries and missionaries to feed the hungry, and care for orphans and widows.


Koinonia partners with other ministries and missionaries with the goal of building long term relationships and hosting teams.

Why We Give To Missions?

Generosity is the fruit of proper Biblical understanding of ownership. I’m convinced by the psalmist words, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it”.
God is the source, provider, creator, and owner.
Understanding this truth is the first principle in handling our money well. Our role isn’t to “give back” to God but manage the resources He asked us to invest for His Kingdom’s sake.
We give at Koinonia Church because we know God is expecting a return according to the story of the talents in Matthew 25. We give to invest in the Kingdom-building ministries He set before us.
I believe when you give; ‘you are saying to God, you’re in charge, God, and everything I have is available to You for Your Kingdom.’
