Student Activities - Interfaith Club

Founded in 2020, the Interfaith Club is designed to provide people on Greenville’s campus with educational opportunities to learn about different faiths.  

Interfaith Club strives to create a safe space for students outside of the academic realm to learn about diverse worldviews, think critically about complex issues, develop skills for interfaith dialogue, and clarify their own faith identity. We believe that experiences like these enrich the Greenville University community by promoting a mature and thoughtful faith that can engage the world with respect and love.

Interfaith is a sanctioned club, approved by Student Senate, that meets each week for food, fellowship, and dialogue. It is open to all students, staff, faculty, and alumni. These meetings are a source of educational content as well as an opportunity to connect with and learn from local religious leaders. The Interfaith Club also hosts a weekly small group for students to discuss a variety of topics related to theology, spirituality, and worldview. The Interfaith Club has hosted a wide variety of programming, with our most popular event honoring the Jewish holiday of Purim in collaboration with Vespers and the Jewish Christian Studies Program. 

Interfaith Club offers several experiential leadership opportunities through the positions of Chaplin, Education Coordinator, and Marketing Coordinator. This team hosts our weekly meetings and organizes all programming. Members can apply for any of these positions when they become vacant. Leadership positions are hired by the previous leadership team and the club advisor.  

Interfaith Club works closely with the Shapiro Jewish Christian Studies Program (SJCS) as the program does similar work on GU's campus. The Shapiro Jewish Christian Studies Program "...seeks to promote respectful Christian engagement with the Jewish community by teaching students about Judaism and Christianity’s interconnected past, present, and future and preparing them to relate empathetically and productively in a globalized world, combatting hate and Christian anti-Semitism."
