"Guides" to the Religions of Des Moines

In 2013 The Comparison Project began creating guides to religious “communities” in the greater Des Moines area. Each guide includes a history of the community and description of its practices, along with information relevant to visiting that community’s services.

For the most part, each guide was created within the context of a Drake University course about that community (as part of a “Religions of Des Moines” series). In cases where courses have not yet been taught about a religious community that is featured in our photo-narrative on religion in Des Moines (Spectrum of Faith), we provide the student entry from it.

We thank Bob Blanchard for the photos of these communities (http://www.bobblanchardphotography.com)
