The Hendricks Chapel Interfaith Council is a student led organization dedicated to fostering fellowship, conversation and community engagement among people of all faiths and no faith. The Interfaith Council leads campus wide initiatives designed to bring together people across difference through events, programs and community projects.
Hendricks Chapel Interfaith Council seeks to nurture inter-religious conversation and create a safe space for affirming one's own tradition while understanding the religious practices and beliefs of others. We seek to build bridges through service, education and dialogue to promote a mindset for living peacefully in the global community.
The Interfaith Council is part of the President’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge, an initiative that invites institutions of higher education to commit to a year of interfaith and community service programming on campus.
Membership in the Interfaith Council is through application and is open to people of all religious traditions and lifestances. We are looking for students who are deeply committed to dialogue across difference and who seek to make a positive difference in the world through collaborative community projects. Students should have a passion for exploring the most pressing contemporary issues of our day, as well as a commitment to working together to create change. Commitment to the Interfaith Council includes regular meetings, planning of and participation in the President’s Interfaith and Community Service Challenge initiative, and other possible activities during the academic year. Members are asked to dedicate at least 2 hours per week to the work of the Council and asked to serve for two consecutive semesters, though members may remain on the Council for the duration of their studies. For more information, please contact email@example.com. To apply, simply fill out the Interfaith Council application.
