The Koinonia Center will be the new home for ministry teams as they stay in Salyersville. If you have been on a trip and stayed in the old Prater school, things will look very familiar to you. The K-Center is going to be housed in the sister school that was built at the same time, just in the Royalton area on the East side of Salyersville. Below is the mission and vision of the center which is a ministry of Licking River Baptist Church.

The vision of LRBC to be “The Life of Christ in Person…The Love of Christ in Action” has never been more vibrant than it is today. With the addition of their mission center, LRBC is positioned to provide their community and surrounding cities with Christ-centered, evangelistically focused ministry.

It is LRBC’s goal is to create long-term partnerships with ministries and mission teams to advance God’s kingdom and enrich the lives of the people of Appalachia and beyond.
