Celebrating 30+ years of Interfaith Engagement


About Us

We Exist:
  • to facilitate communication among and the mutual strengthening of interfaith organizations,
  • to affirm humanity’s diverse and historic spiritual resources and bring them to bear on contemporary global, national, regional and local issues,
  • to foster the work of interfaith organizations and provide networking possibilities

NAIN's Mission

NAIN builds communication and mutual understanding among interfaith organizations and diverse religious groups throughout North America. Without infringing on the effort of existing organizations, NAIN facilitates the networking possibilities of these organizations and encourages cooperative interaction based on serving the needs and promoting the aspirations of all member groups.
