This research aims to examine the activities of cultural approach in preaching as a solution to building tolerance. This is urgent in providing a solution to the highly intolerant social and religious life, which is very concerning in weaving the social ties of the nation. The role of community organizations such as Nahdlatul Ulama and Muhammadiyah in carrying out their social functions through cultural preaching approaches is significant. The understanding of cultural preaching among NU and Muhammadiyah is essentially the same as a preaching approach but differs in the preaching object. If cultural preaching among NU aligns with the social and cultural practices of the community, cultural preaching among Muhammadiyah is more about emphasizing the pure teachings of Islam. The implementation of cultural preaching among NU and Muhammadiyah has the same implementation process, which is direct cultural preaching that touches on aspects of the community, while cultural preaching is more about cooperation with government institutions.
