Interfaith Executive Director

 

The Interfaith Council of Metropolitan Washington (IFC) is seeking a new Executive Director to help the IFC continue its mission of creating an inclusive community of diverse faiths in our nation’s capital that is focused on the values that unite us and the distinctions that make each faith unique.

Described by the Washington Post as “one of the most dynamic, diverse inter-religious coalitions in the United States, “the InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2013. The IFC engages 11 faith communities in the Nation’s Capital region to promote inter-religious communication, mutual understanding, and a sense of community. The member faith communities of the IFC are the Baha’i, Buddhist, Hindu, Islamic, Jain, Jewish, Latter-day Saints, Protestant, Roman Catholic, Sikh, and Zoroastrian faith communities of metropolitan Washington.

The IFC celebrates and honors religious diversity, while seeking to identify and advance those values that all of the member faith communities share. The IFC works through the sponsorship of large and small-group dialogues, the presentation of concerts and lectures, the publication of resource materials, the dissemination of public statements, institution-building, networking, and the sponsorship of annual awards for interfaith bridge-builders.

Over the years, the IFC’s activities and agenda have responded to the needs and priorities of its expanding membership of faith communities. When, for example, the faith communities saw a need to serve the region’s hungry people, the IFC helped found the Capital Area Food Bank. When service providers were faced with opposition to their location within residential neighborhoods, the IFC created a coalition called the Campaign for New Community to foster more mutually supportive relationships.

Today, IFC’s initiatives include:

• Creating and disseminating “Strengthening Teaching About Religion (STAR), a high school curricular resource used by social studies and world religion teachers.

• Publishing the vital Emergency Food, Shelter, and Health Care Directory to enable community organizations to connect people in need with relevant service providers throughout the region.

• Empowering the next generation of interfaith leaders by sponsoring the annual DC Young Adult Faith Leaders Summit.

• Providing a supportive voice for religious communities that are affected by disaster, discrimination, restrictions on religious practices, or vandalism.

• Providing a religious leadership on environmental sustainability through IFC’s program affiliated, Greater Washington Interfaith Power & Light.

• Promoting interfaith understanding through dialogues on a variety of topics and in a variety of formats.

With a successful transition to a new Executive Director, the IFC will continue to build on its historic legacy, serving the diverse community of metropolitan Washington.
