At Koinonia, we consider it one of our ministries to welcome people to walk our path for a period of time. Our Community Intern program offers people a chance to live at Koinonia for 3-4 months, go through orientation together, have spiritual and work mentors, and participate in the life of the community. Interns receive food and lodging (which may be a room shared with another intern) and, if needed, a stipend of up to $15 per week. An internship at Koinonia is often a life-changing experience, and Community Interns enrich our lives by rejuvenating community life and helping in our labors.
Koinonia does not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, beliefs or any other difference that has been used to prevent people from coming together and sharing their lives. We have seen a broad diversity of people over the years and welcome all faiths, but interns are invited to explore elements of the Christian faith in our ongoing programs.
At Koinonia, we live together, learn from each other, resolve differences, and work for the good of our community and the rest of the world. An internship is also the first step in the process of becoming a long-term member of the Koinonia community.
