The Greater Kansas City Interfaith Council’s Speakers Bureau is dedicated to building relationships within our community as part of the Council’s mission of growing a sustainable, pervasive culture of knowledge, respect, appreciation and trust amongst people of all faiths and religious traditions in the greater Kansas City metro area.

GKCIC speakers embrace the goals of the Council and are eager to share their knowledge of the Council’s work within the community as well as the principles of their personal understanding and experience of their faith traditions. Though fees are not required by the GKCIC, honorariums are very much appreciated, as are contributions to the community of faith the Speaker represents.

Many of our speakers are also available to visit hospice, hospitals and nursing home patients. Many are available to be called upon to facilitate prayer services, memorial services, and other ceremonies. Please feel free to explore our Council Directors for their photos and biographies for more comprehensive information about our individual Council Faith Directors and At-Large Directors and their interfaith activities within our Greater Kansas City communities.

To arrange for a speaker for your organization or event, please contact the prospective speaker directly through the information provided. We will also be happy to assist you in arranging an interfaith series of speakers for your organization, and help you organize an interfaith discussion panel.

Whatever your program planning needs feel free to contact our Speakers Bureau Coordinator Kara Hawkins at 816-509-7984 or karaleehawkins48@gmail.com.
