As the result of a meeting of international interfaith organisations convened by the World Congress of Faiths in 1983 at Ammerdown, England, the Temple of Understanding was charged with a task to identify and support interfaith activity in North America. Temple of Understanding hosted meetings during 1985 through 1987 to discuss the formation of a network of interfaith councils in North America. It was with a great deal of donated energy, insight and prayerful envisioning that NAIN was born. Foundation in Wichita, Kansas, in 1988.
