For many years, The Greater Kansas City Interfaith Council (GKCIC) has been a not-for-profit organization striving to break the barriers amongst all faiths and religious traditions by creating a community based on cultural knowledge, respect, appreciation and trust. The Council strives to provide engaging and educational programs about the many diverse faith philosophies represented in Greater Kansas City by joining religion, spirit and community.
We are excited about the 2015 Table of Faiths and hope you can join us for this inspiring evening. Although this is a major fundraising event, it also provides the opportunity to enrich your spirit and be uplifted and inspired.
This year’s theme "One Family, One World, One Future" recognizes that, together we are moving into a future filled with hope.
Engage with representatives of over 20 different faiths, each with a presence in Greater Kansas City, as part of the interactive Faith Quest activity, meet people of different faiths from all over our metropolitan area and participate in amazing dialogue opportunities…all while enjoying a “small plate” buffet and entertainment. In addition, Table of Faiths is an opportunity to publicly recognize special work within the community, by the presentation of the Table of Faiths Award and The Steve Jeffers Interfaith Leadership Award.
This year's awardees:
The Steve Jeffers Interfaith Leadership Award (named in honor of the late Director of Spirituality in Health of Shawnee Mission Medical Center) will be awarded to Rev. Dr. Wallace Hartsfield, Sr., former pastor of Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church, in Kansas City, Missouri, as well as pastorates throughout the United States. He has been active at the local and national levels of the Congress of National Black Churches, has served in various civic positions at the local and state level, and is a member of the Executive Board of the Jazz District Redevelopment Corporation.
The Table of Faiths award, given to an organization that exhibits interfaith values in the community, will be presented to The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. The contributions made by the Nelson-Atkins to interfaith and intercultural education and understanding is exhibited through its emphasis on works of great cultural, as well as artistic, significance, in special exhibits like 2014’s Echoes: Islamic Art & Contemporary Artists, Roads to Arabia, and The Plains Indians: Artists of Earth and Sky as well as in its permanent collection.
