The InterFaith Alliance was founded on October 17, 2012 when Fr. Arturo Bañuelas called together a diverse group of faith leaders within El Paso & Southern New Mexico who agreed to gather regularly to dialogue and learn from each other.

From 2012 until 2015, Rabbi Larry Bach and the Rev. Deborah Clugy-Soto co-chaired the alliance. When Rabbi Larry moved away from El Paso in 2015, Pastor Deborah assumed the leadership as chair until 2020.  During these years several city-wide prayer vigils were held, along with other community and youth events.

In 2020 the alliance was incorporated, elected it's first Council and secured it's non-profit status.
