The Religion Communicators Council exists to spread the good news to the world. Its members come from all religious groups and work in various public relations arenas.
What does a religious community do when they are attacked on the political stage? The answer: form a non-profit to address this. That is exactly what happened in 2011 when the American Center for Outreach was formed by Muslim leaders in Nashville, Tennessee.
The American Center for Outreach (ACO) plans to host the Religion Communicators Council (RCC) for its April 21st meeting. Director Paul Galloway will speak to the mission, purpose and history of the center to RCC members.
RCC hears regularly from a variety of organizations and groups which better the community, promote messages of faith or give tips on how to spread the good word.
The American Center for Outreach works to promote religious liberty and faith-based social justice through advocacy and issue-based coalitions. Its principles are religious freedom, mutual respect, and interfaith cooperation, among others.
“It is wonderful that such an organization exists to bring justice and equality to all legal processes,” says president of the Nashville RCC chapter and pastor of the Church of Scientology, Rev. Brian Fesler.
Director of ACO, Paul Galloway who will be presenting to the RCC has been called “the Yoda of interfaith affairs” while he was with Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston, where his work was honored with a Jefferson Awards Certificate of Excellence for Public Service.
Fesler continued: “All religious communicators are welcome to attend and become members of RCC.” RCC is open to members from all denominations, and the Nashville group includes Baha’is, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Scientologists, and more.
