What is Oikos?

       Oikos is a New Testament Greek word that means household or family. It is the name we give for our Small Group Ministry at Koinonia. Oikos provides a setting where brothers and sisters can build relationships with one another and with God.

       An Oikos meets weekly from the beginning of September to the end of July. During the 11-month journey, group members are committed to grow, share, and pray for each other. It is a journey where precious relationships in Christ can be built. Many of these relationships will last a lifetime.

Four Oikos Tracks

(A) The Discipleship Track

       This track is suitable for people who want to build a solid foundation in discipleship. Believers who have recently accepted the Christian faith, or have been away from church but are now returning will find this track helpful. This track will be offered in September 2019 at the Koinonia Ministry Center.

(B) The Spiritual Formation Track

       If you desire to deepen your relationship with God and to build a Christ-like character, join other like-minded Christians to pursue this journey. This track will be offered in September 2020.

(C) The Kingdom Movement Track

       Continue from previous Oikos journey, a disciple will seek God’s kingdom and pursue the movement that God has started in Vancouver. This track will be offered in September 2019 at the Koinonia Ministry Center.

(D) The High School / College Track

       College and high school students (grade 8 to college) who seeks spiritual growth and companionship will join one of these tracks. Together they will deepen their faith and learn important skills to face life’s challenges. These tracks will be offered in September 2019 at Richmond Christian School and Koinonia Ministry Center.
