The Koinonia Trust.

The name of the organisation is The Koinonia Trust. ‘Koinonia’ is a Greek word meaning ‘love and fellowship’. Inspired from Acts 2:42 where new believers ‘were devoted to one another’. This Trust seeks to be devoted to one another and to those it seeks to serve. Our Motto Bringing Beauty out of Ashes’ is inspired from Isaiah 61:1-3. This talks about the wounds of the brokenhearted being bound and bringing liberty to the captives. This is something that can be very real and can be experienced regardless of our brokenness, including the inner struggles with mental health due to trauma and grief. God has the ability to bring beauty out of the ashes of our lives and give us hope for the future.

Context and Mission Statement.

Here you can read about the context and find our mission statement.

Context

Liberia has suffered an immense amount of trauma since 1985. There was  oppression, mass killings and rapes by all the militant and rebel elements. Children were  kidnapped, abused, drugged and made to become soldiers. Therefore the consequences of this relentless abuse and trauma has not just impacted that generation but has now manifested itself into the next generation.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to support the healing of adults and children who have experienced trauma and brokenness. The roots of love, faith and encouragement of The Koinonia Trust are embedded in our partnership approach. Through practical actions we demonstrate God’s love to those who are marginalised or socially excluded from society.

A Growing Partnership

We see a growing partnership developing between the trust and local communities. To support this disadvantaged community made up of different faith denominations, religions and ethnic backgrounds offers a great opportunity. We seek to demonstrate God’s love in action through different projects. In utilising a holistic approach that understands we are created with a spiritual, emotional, mental, social and physical well-being.

Taking a partnership approach remains very important to the Trust. We seek to encourage, empower and strengthen individuals, families and communities. Consequently we seek to develop wider partnerships that are viable, accountable and reciprocal. Partnership is not just at an organisational level, but also with those individuals who support the work on the ground.

We also ask for your partnership as we embark on a new journey pouring God’s love and grace wherever needed. Jesus came to heal the brokenhearted, to set the captives free and to restore beauty for ashes. Please pray for us and for Liberia as God continues to restore His people, to rebuild a community and strengthen a nation.
