The EcoFaith Network is every congregation and member wrestling with and responding to God’s call to be stewards of the earth for the sake of the whole creation. There is no membership list or qualifications. The EcoFaith Network is not an organization, but a movement quietly growing among us.
The EcoFaith Network Leadership Team nurtures the whole EcoFaith Network by organizing gatherings, providing resources, offering networking opportunities, and helping your congregation and your conference integrate God’s love for the whole creation into its message and overall ministry.
The Leadership Team is composed of lay members and ordained (and Synodically Authorized) ministers. Members have a wide variety of interests and professional backgrounds, both currently employed and under call or retired. Each conference in the Northeastern Minnesota Synod has two or more liaisons on the EcoFaith Network Leadership Team.
The Leadership Team holds one hour conference call meetings every month and meets for in-person meetings four times a year, including one overnight retreat in the Fall. People on the Leadership Team experience vibrant conversation at our in-person meetings and find inspiration for what they are doing in their own congregations.
Are you interested in serving? We would welcome you! No previous experience needed, just that indefinable but essential spark of loving concern for the creation, a spark which together with others, bursts into a flame.
