To encourage youth, adults and units to do their Duty to God.
Activities Supporting Our Mission:
Educating youth, adults and units about and encouraging them to earn religious awards and recognition
Promoting interfaith understanding
The Interfaith Religious Recognition Committee is an official committee of the Relationships Division of the Grand Canyon Council, Inc., Boy Scouts of America. More simply referred to as the "Interfaith Committee," we are a team of volunteers from various religious organizations that coordinates Duty to God activities with the assistance of a Staff Adviser employed by the Council.
The Interfaith Committee was formed to work with religious organizations and Scouting units at all levels, their parents, religious leaders and youth members, to promote the Religious Emblems program to their religion and to provide recognition of their achievements after they have earned a Religious Emblem.
The Interfaith Committee members visit and assist with Scouting units, religious leaders, Scout Leaders, Roundtable Meetings, Camporees, Baden-Powell University (formally Pow-Wow and University of Scouting), Leader Basic Training courses and Summer camps. We introduce, instruct and encourage youth to earn the Religious Emblems of their faith. Our subcommittees include Relationships, Chaplaincy and Religious Emblems.
Interfaith Committee Meetings
The Interfaith Committee meetings are held quarterly, and Meeting time is from 7:15pm to 9pm. All are welcomed to attend. Sub-committee meetings and special events are held throughout the year.
