Global Faith Forum


Unlikely Allies Building Flourishing Communities

October 10-11, 2021 • DFW


About Unlikely Conference

The Global Faith Forum is a gathering of unlikely allies that venture down an unlikely path in order to build flourishing communities. The GFF takes us from having a conversation about others to having a conversation with others.

We are living in a time of polarization and fear like few times in American and global history. The fear between the faiths should not be something that causes us to destroy one another and the world in which we live, but to understand one another so we can move forward building flourishing communities together.

As a long-time champion of bridge-building between different religions, not many have worked to cross divides in the world more than Dr. Mohammad Al-Issa. From acknowledging the Holocaust to reaching out to different faiths & ideas, this has led to the culmination of his writing of the Makkah Declaration in 2019.

Sunday night of the conference, a historic event will take place in Dallas Fort Worth as Dr. Al-Issa will read the Makkah Declaration and others will respond. It will be the first-ever national public gathering of evangelicals and Muslims. The next day, we will hear from other top religious leaders including Pastors, Rabbis, and Imams on how we build bridges together.
