Koinonia Christian Fellowship is the name of a number of different Christian churches and other organisations. The name derives from the word koinonia, the anglicisation of a New Testament Greek word for fellowship. The organisations are generally unrelated to each other.

Bloomingdale, Ontario[edit]

Koinonia Christian Fellowship is a church in Bloomingdale, Ontario. According to their own statements they are " a body of believers whose goal is to passionately pursue Koinonia" with God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, to develop and demonstrate Koinonia with one another through covenant relationship, and to expand their "Koinonia" and extend God's heart to the world by reaching the lost through personal and corporate evangelism".

Koinonia was founded in 1984 in Waterloo, Ontario. The church first met in the Waterloo Inn before relocating in 1986 to its present location in Bloomingdale. Since that time, both property and facilities have been expanded.

In 1993, Koinonia Christian Academy was established accommodating children from Junior Kindergarten through high school. Both the church and the school continue to thrive and grow.

Ministries include Kidzone Urban Ministries, Impact Youth Ministries and Twenty20 Young Adults Ministry.

Koinonia Christian Fellowship is a student run organization at Clarion University of Pennsylvania. Koinonia was founded nearly 40 years ago by students and community members who shared a vision to reach college students. It is still a community-based ministry and has continued to grow.
