ILGL Mission & Vision

Interfaith Leaders Greater Lafayette (ILGL) is a coalition of leaders of religious institutions and organizations in greater Lafayette dedicated to dialogue, service, hope, and a shared vision for our local community. We are united to create and support a community of respect, dignity, and responsibility for all. Through our work together, we hope to create an atmosphere of hospitality, belonging, compassion, and safety, where the city can stand firmly together in our diverse beliefs. 

ILGL’s vision is to foster and sustain the multi-faith fabric of the greater Lafayette community through: 

• Relationship building

• Community education 

• Celebrating diversity 

• Providing support and solidarity 

• Taking action towards a more welcoming community 

• Collaboration and communication 

The group meets regularly as faith leaders to learn about issues facing the greater Lafayette community, engage in critical dialogue about these issues, and invite common responses to them. Our goal is to disseminate resources, promote events, and connect individuals in our faith communities to initiatives furthering our vision for the greater Lafayette community and promote increased understanding of various faiths and how our faith informs our values.
