Joni and Friends has a range of events for both individuals and families of all ages. See what Joni and Friends is doing and how you can get involved.

The success of a Joni and Friends event depends heavily on the carefully nurtured Christian community that allows individuals and families to feel blessed and supported. For this reason, Joni and Friends reserves the right to accept individuals and families and/or assign accommodations based on our ability to meet the needs of everyone in a safe Christian environment. Thank you for your understanding in helping us preserve the community of Joni and Friends events.
