Green The Church Campaign
Renewal Worship Center – Oakland, CA
The Green The Church Campaign will engage communities of faith by training faith leaders as instructors in the Roots of Success Curriculum. Once trained, leaders can engage and mobilize their congregations to initiate sustainability projects and form Green Team Ministries. The project was created to help connect the dots for congregants on environmental issues and allow faith communities to embrace the green movement through theology. The project aims to mobilize a sector of the population that is organized and has historically played a significant role in creating change.
