When faith and media work together, society benefits.

A Mission to Unite

84% of humankind identifies with a religion* – it’s a deep part of our identities and worldviews. Yet most stories about faith are negative, sensational or divisive. 

Our initiative brings together faith leaders, media members and content creators around shared interests, helping them create, collaborate and reach larger audiences. Joining forces, we can do more to heal divisions and promote understanding, inspire more balanced faith stories, and foster a healthy conversation about spirituality.
