The Tri-Faith Initiative is a bold interfaith endeavor in the heartland. Comprised of three intentionally co-located congregations of the Abrahamic faiths, on the Tri-Faith Commons in the Sterling Ridge development near 132nd & Pacific Streets in Omaha, Nebraska. A fourth building, the Tri-Faith Center, will be a central place of education, outreach, programming with the mission of fostering empathy and creating dialogue that celebrates pluralism and diversity in religion.
The four buildings on the Tri-Faith Commons are unified by a circular bridge and walking paths that will cross “Hell Creek” and physically bring members of the three faith groups together. The Master Plan concept drawings below highlight how the circular bridge will provide each congregation easy access to the shared common space and how each building within the Commons has been designed to maximize the shared views between them.
- Temple Israel is on the east side of the Commons (Dedicated in 2013)
- Countryside Community Church will be located on the southwest portion of the Commons (Grand opening, April 2019)
- AMI is on the northwest corner (Opened 2017)
- Tri-Faith Center will be located on the west side of the Commons between AMI and Countryside (Anticipated construction complete early 2020)
