Each time we meet we have an opportunity to expand our own awareness of how the geography and history of our communities shape our ministry. Building on work we have begun in Cedar Rapids, Newark and Lexington, this training event will introduce us to the communities and history of Koinonia Farm and Habitat for Humanity.

Koinonia Farm is a Christian farm community founded in 1942 in Americus, GA, which is the birthplace of Habitat for Humanity, as well as several other ongoing ministries. It is also still a working pecan and peanut farm, it still welcomes visitors, and it still strives to be the “demonstration plot for the Kingdom of God.”

The schedule is still being planned, but we will use the time to build on the leadership foundation that is already in place, and to identify sustainable strategies for network development. We will explore how best to support the practical needs of our many ministries around the nine principle functions of Jubilee Ministry: Consciousness Raising, Designated Jubilee Centers, Training, Human Resources, Research and Evaluation, Publications, Network for Public Policy, Evangelism and Congregational Development, and Jubilee Ministry Grants.

Diocesan Jubilee Officers are strongly encouraged to make participation in this event a priority. To make that possible, a flat $100 registration fee will be charged for participation, and the Office of Social & Economic Justice will cover ALL the related travel and lodging expenses for those who register by September 1. Travel expenses will NOT be covered for those who register after that date.
