Koinonos is a Greek word that refers to one that is a partner, associate, comrade, or companion. 


"If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself."

Philemon 1:17



Koinonos perfectly describes the collaborative effort between the Dominican churches and ministry partners in North America to fulfill the Great Commission.



Koinonos was founded by Dan & Barbara Woodring in 2017.  The primary goal was to help the Dominican churches transition from missionary receiving to missionary sending churches.


The Dominican church leaders have embraced the call and have set a goal to plant 50 churches in the next 20 years.  In 2023, Koinonos transitioned to Dominican leadership.  Dan & Barbara now serve with The Way of Truth Ministries but continue to partner with Koinonos.

Dominicans are now doing the majority of the ministry, the Woodrings are focussing their efforts on leadership development, training, funding, & strategic partnerships.

All tax-deductible contributions for  Koinonos Ministries are received through The Way of Truth Ministries.
