Since 1969, Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston (IM) has been helping our community learn more about each other through dialogue, collaboration, and service, as a demonstration of our shared beliefs. Under the umbrella of the Interfaith Relations and Community Partnerships (IRCP) at IM, we offer educational opportunities and places where people can connect with individuals of diverse faiths and backgrounds through existing programs such as our Dinner Dialogues, Faith in our City, Interfaith Podcast Project, and iLEAD youth leadership and service programs.
In addition, our team can provide high-quality, engaging, and affordable interactive and experiential educational opportunities for schools, colleges, as well as religious, corporate, and community groups interested in understanding Houston’s cultural and religious landscape. Our expertise and resources can foster a deeper understanding of Houston’s religious diversity and help people and organizations appreciate our diverse and growing community.
Our work builds bridges by providing opportunities to learn about our community’s religious diversity. We focus on cultural competency, greater understanding of our community, and practical skills to navigate our diverse world. We believe that these attributes can contribute to healthier communities, classrooms, and workspaces, an increased confidence in interpersonal interactions, and a deeper understanding of the people and the world around us.
