Banquet Report

God our Father has raised and equipped some amazing “Radical Responders” through Koinonia House National Ministries to respond to the urgent need of those impacted by Incarceration.  At this year’s radical banquet, the vision and mission for “Radical Responders” was captured by many others for which Barb and I are so grateful, aleluya!

More than 500 partners, pastors, ministry volunteers, prison staff leaders and former prisoners and their families impacted by the Koinonia ministry celebrated KHNM’s 26th year with joy, worship, prayer, gratitude and generosity at our annual banquet. A very full house!

Donations and pledges that evening of more than $113,000 puts us on firm financial ground for 2018 and beyond. We were delighted to add 57 new donors this year. Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!

The theme for this year’s program was “Snapshots of Radical Prayer. Radical Love.” Below are some photo highlights in a short slide show from the banquet.

“Radical Prayer” Book Dedication

RP book dedication for blog

The Koinonia Banquet last night was an outstanding event – a full house experienced the “God at Work” movement in this ministry. A key highlight of the evening was the book dedication of “Radical Prayer,” the new Moody Publishers release. Leading in this part of the program was Dr. David Gieser, while Manny Mill and his two contributors, Barbara Mill and Harold Smith laid their hands on the book.

Please pray for the banquet

Koinonia Banquet – 2013

Last night’s annual banquet was an amazing success. A huge “thank you” to everyone who could be there, and thanks to everyone who prayed for God’s blessing on this event. We heard outstanding stories from ex-offenders, volunteers and team partners about what the ministry has done this past year. We were blessed!
