Our Closest Colleagues
Since 2004, Eco-Justice Ministries has enjoyed a close and collaborative relationship with seven other agencies that work to encourage and support environmental programming in local congregations. Representatives of our organizations have meet for planning retreats on two occasions, and we keep in close touch with each other about resources and strategy. We are honored to have such excellent friends in the cause! In alphabetical order:
  • Earth Ministry
    Based in Seattle, Washington, with a mission "To inspire and mobilize the Christian community to play a leadership role in building a just and sustainable future."
  • Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon
    The Environmental Ministries Oregon's ecumenical agency "embraces a variety of environmental concerns and is concerned with how care for creation is woven into faith and the life of congregations and denominations."
  • Faith in Place
    In Chicago, Illinois, this interfaith agency gives "religious people the tools to become good stewards of the earth"
  • Green Faith
    Located in New Jersey, they are "inspiring, educating and mobilizing people of diverse religious backgrounds for environmental leadership." Green Faith has developed a certification program for houses of worship, and a national fellowship program for leadership training.
  • Interfaith Power and Light (Regeneration Project)
    "A religious response to global warming", the IP&L network has affiliates in more than 34 states.
  • National Council of Churches, Eco-Justice Program
    Working at a denominational level, they provide an opportunity for the national bodies of member Protestant and Orthodox communions to work together to protect and restore God's Creation. They have developed a collection of strong resources and curriculum materials for local churches.
  • New Community Project
    With headquarters in Elgin, Illinois, NCP is "promoting peace through justice, care for creation, and experiential learning." They lead immersion trips to locations that vividly demonstrate the interconnection between social justice and ecological sustainability.
We have also appreciated a strong working relationship with several of the grassroots organizations that highlight and coordinate environmental work within several denominations:

The agencies listed below also are ones that we know well and recommend highly. (Web of Creation has a very extensive listing of faith-based envirnomental groups.)
