Interfaith Growth and Vision Conference

Posted by on April 5, 2002

Dear Religious and Community Leaders:

The Era of Faith
Whether your opinion is for or against government and faith partnerships
we can all agree that faith at center stage of public debate can
ultimately increase the visibility of the faith community, which can add
more value to the concerns voiced by the faithful. What are your
concerns about faith based initiatives? More importantly, what do you
know about resources such as Charitable Choice, Collaboration Building
and Workforce Development? Are you aware of the current financial
resources that are being made available to faith and community
organizations? What is your capacity to write federal and private grants
for social programs? Lastly, how do you assess your capacity to provide
services? The time to build new paradigms in religious and community
collaborations in programs and social services has come. Resources for
Organized Active Religions (ROAR), an interfaith organization whose
mission is to: Assist faith based organizations in their endeavor to
successfully implement results-oriented management practices to improve
their social service mission and program outcome, invites you and key
members of your organization to attend a one day conference entitled,
Interfaith Growth and Vision Conference.

You are invited to attend on April 16, 2002 an Interfaith Growth and
Vision Conference to be held at the Friends Meeting House on 4th and
Arch Streets starting at 7:30 AM and ending at 5:30 PM. Cost: $20.00
per person. Please be sure to register early. Continental breakfast
and lunch will be served for approximately 600 people.

The purpose of the “Interfaith Growth and Vision Conference” is to
stimulate and support the efforts of Philadelphia-area religious
organizations to increase their capacity to deliver important community
services. The conference will attempt to accomplish this task by 1)
providing educational forums and resource information in topic areas
recommended by a widely representative planning committee of interfaith
leaders and 2) by facilitating networking among participating religious
organizations and encouraging the formation of ongoing collaborations
among members of ROAR and the wider faith community.

The conference will provide valuable information that can assist in the
religious communities efforts to refine management practices and enhance
existing program goals. In addition, participants will have
opportunities to learn methods essential to the procurement of federal
and state contracts.
