Register for Annual Luncheon (details below)
Mobile Area Interfaith Conference, Inc. (MAIC) is a collaboration of faith-based organizations and religious congregations on mission to encourage development of community resources to address unmet human needs with a focus on serving marginalized citizens.
Jesus once asked his disciples, “Who do you say that I am?” This question was to test and encourage his disciples’ faith. At Mobile Area Interfaith Conference’s (MAIC) annual luncheon, we will share MAIC’s unique faith-based history, going all the way back to 1979 as the Conference of Downtown Churches (CDC), what influential organizations it has birthed, and what it is doing to impact our community today with its reentry programs.
The MAIC’s Annual Fundraising Luncheon will be held Thursday, May 12, 2022, from 12: 00 pm to 1: 30 pm at Government Street Presbyterian Church (GSPC), 300 Government Street, Mobile, Alabama, 36602. All funds generated will strengthen its current programs: the Metro Jail Chaplaincy Office, The Neighbor Center, and the Academy for Career Development. We are excited to have the Government Street Presbyterian Church host the event, since this congregation was one of the original churches involved in the Conference of Downtown Churches before it became the Mobile Area Interfaith Conference.
Telling the story of the Conference of Downtown Churches and the Mobile Area Interfaith Conference will be Reverend Rebekah Abel Lamar of GSPC, Reverend Charles Fail, UMC, and our current MAIC Board President, Mr. Troy Ephriam.
Please join us for a delicious lunch, a look back at our history, and insight into our vision for the future, and see how you and your congregation can become a vital part of this mission to confront the needs of the marginalized in our community.
Tickets are $50.00 per person and $400.00 for a table of 8. Table sponsors will be recognized at the luncheon.
We look forward to seeing you there!

This annual event was established to help educate public officials and residents on the importance of the Community Development Block Grant and other federal grant programs. In Mobile, these kinds of federal funds have played a significant role in programs related to affordable housing, public services and expanding economic opportunities.
