The Missoula Interfaith Collaborative has invited renowned Christian evangelist Tony Campolo to help put "feet to our faith," in getting groups and individuals to work together to help solve the social and spiritual ills of the community.

Casey Dunning of the Interfaith Collaborative says the group, made up of various churches, synagogues and local civic groups, has been working on several projects for the last two years. Dunning hopes Campolo's visit will help to energize the various groups and get the projects closer to fruition.

Dunning says some of the projects include engaging a faith-based response to homelessness and coordinating food drives among the congregations; working with Opportunity Resources to develop one-on-one relationships with the disabled, and working toward a community-wide response to domestic violence.

Campolo will be in Missoula Thursday, March 14 at 6:30 p.m. in the University Center Ballroom. Admission is $10, and the public is welcome to attend.
