Become a Member Today

Join Now

The MFC has been blessed with an active membership during its 20-year history. We continue to depend on the support and engagement of our members to carry out our vital bridge-building mission in NW OH.

We now have a new database to help us to keep track of our members. We are asking everyone, old and new members of the MFC alike, to please “Join” the MFC formally so that we have your contact information in the new database. This will allow you to receive our newsletter and stay informed about upcoming programs and events. We appreciate financial gifts when possible because we receive no funding outside of generous donations from individuals and groups. However, finances should never be a barrier to participation in the MFC, so we also have a “Basic” membership level that is 100% free. Approximately 1/2 of our membership has joined at the Basic level.

Please join today, and invite your friends and faith communities to do so as well! Our goal is to reach 300 members by October of 2023.

Jennifer Vasquez, Executive Director

The Multifaith Council of Northwest Ohio

About Us

The MultiFaith Council of NW Ohio was founded by Woody and Judy Trautman and an initial Board of Directors in 2001. It became an official non-profit in 2003. It has been a largely volunteer organization.

We seek mutual respect and understanding among all faith traditions, through overlapping strands of education, fellowship, and community service.

We believe that we need to work together to realize our shared humanity.


A Greater Toledo Compassionate Community

In 2014, this significant initiative of the MultiFaith Council led to official designation as a Compassionate Community as the Mayor, City Council and Lucas County Commissioners passed resolutions affirming the Charter for Compassion. We were the first region and thirty-ninth city to become a part of a global community of now over 86 cities.
