Kainos Koinonia 2020 – Portland, OR Area

KAINOS KOINONIA 2020 – Portland area, Oregon USA

October 29th – Nov. 1st, 2020  (DATES UPDATED!)

We are so excited to be all together again soon, to revel in Jesus and His New Creation Realities! This year we found a beautiful and amazingly affordable place in the forest just south of Portland, OR USA!

We have had a few of the Kainos events on a single location, and received so much positive feedback that we decided to do it again! The whole event will be held at the Molalla Retreat camp and conference center, including lodging, meals, and all gatherings! The location has access to many acres of natural beauty for adventures and personal quiet times in the great outdoors as well!

Kainos Koinonia is a a yearly gathering of those who are interested in exploring new wineskins of community expression in Jesus, his new creation reality, an inclusive finished work message, and experiencing His supernatural in authentic ecstatic JOY! Not sure what all that means? You’re most welcome to come and find out! All are welcome!

You are also welcome to join our online Facebook group for more Grace & Glory community interactions before, during, and after the yearly event: https://www.facebook.com/groups/372596676525770/ 

The point of these gatherings is to empower local communities to walk in this stuff throughout the year!


Matt Spinks & Jared Gustafson will be sharing Good News & vision, but the goal of the Kainos Koinonia gatherings is to empower each person in community! We engage in free-flow worship and group sharing times, along with genuine connection encouraged between “official meetings!” This isn’t a conference, it’s a family reunion!! There may be additional speaking and Q & A sessions subject to change. Let’s flow in Holy Spirit and mutual listening hearts! There are rumors that we may have a couple of surprise speaking guests as well!

Cole Harmon will be leading worship!!!                       https://www.patreon.com/user?u=16029437

Covid – 19

We WILL NOT BE CANCELLING any of the rest of our events for 2020!

We will, therefore, be making intentional steps so that everyone can comfortably participate!

We are not requiring masks at our events. However, if someone comes and wants to wear a mask, we ask that you please respect that. Please do not judge anyone for either wearing or not wearing masks.

If someone is wearing a mask, we ask that you keep 6 feet away from them at all times, unless they indicate that it is ok to approach them.

We will still be having worship and singing at our events.

We will have enough space in all of our meetings so that those who want to remain socially distanced can do so.

For our Kainos Koinonia overnight campers, our hosts have given us extra buildings so that we can give anyone who wants to remain socially distanced the option to do so. There are also still Airbnbs and hotels available nearby for those who want to stay off site.

We will also have plenty of sanitizer spray and towels available to clean off areas of concern.

Food prep and clean up for Kainos Koinonia will be done with extra care given to sanitizing and washing hands frequently, before, during, and after meals.

Any questions or further requests???
We want everyone to feel celebrated, safe, and free!!!
