Faith Organizations

Faith Organizations Consider the following issues when looking for a place of worship:
– Are the buildings and sanctuary accessible, welcoming and inclusive?
– Are the programs or ministries accessible, welcoming and inclusive?
– Are the fellowship or social activities accessible, welcoming and inclusive?

This is an example of an inclusion survey that may be used or adapted for use by any faith community.

The resources below are provided as a way of offering ideas, examples, and resources (many free) about inclusive communities of faith. Most of these resources are interfaith or easily adaptable regarding application, although some contain doctrine specific to certain faith traditions.
