2019 United Methodist Creation Care Conference, July 11-13, 2019
General Board of Global Ministries Earthkeeper Program
Are you called?
Is God calling you to a vocation of caring for God's creation? Would you
like to be one of five hundred Earthkeepers working to create a more just and sustainable world? Earthkeepers work within their U.S.
Lifting up the importance of caring for God's creation at the heart of our Christian faith
Responding creatively to climate change and other environmental challenges
Working for justice so that all communities have access to clean
water, clean air, clean energy, fresh food, and green space.
Who are Earthkeepers?
Earthkeepers are United Methodists who are keenly aware of the ecological challenges in our world today and feel called to be part of a movement to transform the world.
Earthkeepers work with their congregations and communities in many
different ways; creating community gardens in urban "food deserts," advocating for renewable energy policies, or working for environmental justice by cleaning up toxic waste sites near their communities. They may do all these things and more!
Earthkeepers are laity and clergy, students, part-time and full-time
workers, and retirees. They may have a vocation that allows them to focus on
caring for creation during their regular work hours, or they may choose to volunteer their time.
When are the Options for Training?
Global Ministries will announce the training dates and application for 2019 in the future, and we will share those when they do.
