Global Ministries is bringing EarthKeepers training to Salt Lake City on November 1-4, 2018. EarthKeepers equips United Methodist laity and clergy to develop or deepen environmental initiatives in their churches and communities. It connects them with a broader community of United Methodists who are actively engaged in creation care. Training topics will include eco-theology, anti-racism, strategies for social change, and United Methodist resources. Participants will leave the training with a plan to develop a creation care project in their church or community.
The training will be led by Rev. Jenny Phillips, Global Ministries Creation Care Program Manager and clergy member of the Pacific Northwest Conference. (Check out her video below.) The training will include a component on climate change as it relates to disaster mitigation, relief, and recovery. We will meet with Brian Diggs, associate director of the UMCOR West Depot, and will volunteer at the Depot.
The application deadline is October 11, 2018. Read more and apply online today at: www.umcmission.org/EarthKeepers.
