The Front Line of Faith

Muslims For Muslims


Muslims for Muslims International (M4M) seeks to advance the mission and key strategies the 2004 Amman Message envisages by: reconvening the Amman Conference, operationalizing the Amman Message, and responsibly advocating on behalf of the Muslim community. Key to this effort is M4M’s encouraging the ancient Islamic tradition of open public discourse free of consequence, backlash, and fear. M4M's methodology is unique: it currently does not exist anywhere across the world.

Crossing Faiths is creating podcasts. Listen Now
Crossing Faiths is a podcast in which people from diverse religious backgrounds engage in open dialogue about all the things you're NOT supposed to discuss at the dinner table.

Join hosts Jt Pinna, a career national security, international affairs, and D.C. insider, and Elliot Toman, a former media director in the Evangelical church, as they engage in lively conversations about the impact of faith on current events. Crossing Faiths also welcomes guests from various religious and experiential backgrounds to share their insights.

The podcast was initially developed in collaboration with Matt Hawkins, a former policy director for the Southern Baptist Convention. Their conversations are built on a decade of collaboration, advocating in Washington, D.C., for religious freedom domestically and globally. The two developed the podcast to share conversations that model friendship and cooperation despite profound differences in religion and background. The podcast has reached almost 3 million multi-faith listeners, 83% millennials.
