The EcoFaith Network holds an annual EcoFaith Summit to bring God’s people together to encourage, enlighten, and engage each other in God’s movement of healing and renewal for the whole earth creation.
Through worship, speakers, breakout sessions, and networking opportunities, the spring EcoFaith Summit is energizing earth stewards among churches not only in the northeastern Minnesota Synod but throughout the upper Midwest.
