Welcome to Koinonia!

We’re a UC Davis campus ministry that believes that college is the perfect time to explore the big questions like, “Does God exist?” and “What am I here for?”

At Koinonia, you’ll find a safe space to seek answers to these questions while building lasting friendships. Koinonia is a Greek word that means “fellowship.” Throughout the week we “do life” together - studying the Bible, hanging out, eating lots of good food, going on fun trips, and lots more.

Meet the Council

We’re the Koinonia Student Council, and we’re all here to serve you by keeping Koin up and running! We are in charge of planning events and taking care of logistics, but aside from the roles we hold, we are also just a few more familiar faces you can look for if you join us at our events. Hope to see you at Koin!
