Learn about Interfaith Relations
The Interfaith Relations Office is a part of the Theology, Worship and Education ministry area of the PC(USA) and works in close connection with other offices and ministries of the whole church.
The office seeks to encourage the participation of Presbyterians in interfaith activities locally, nationally and internationally and to support educational initiatives to enable well-grounded engagement in interfaith conversations, community building efforts and cooperation for social justice.
We aim to help Presbyterians become better able to articulate their faith in everyday relationships with neighbors of other faiths and to develop the theological grounding we all need to engage with confidence and clarity in interfaith work.
Currently the PC(USA) is involved in a search for a new staff person to serve as Associate for Interfaith Relations. Jay T. Rock, who coordinated this ministry since September 2003, retired in the summer of 2010. Until a new staff person is named, contact Charles Wiley, coordinator for Theology and Worship for assistance.
Presbyterian Interfaith Relations Network
Our conviction is that this sort of work cannot be done by a very small staff, but requires a network of people: those who have built relationships and lived with people of different faith and culture, those who can teach others about other faiths or the skills of interfaith engagement, those who can be bridges between faith communities and those who are simply interested in meeting and understanding their neighbors.
In other words, we welcome you to become part of the “Us” who are doing this work!
