Environmental Ministries Action Network

Are you active in an eco-justice ministry in your church or presbytery?  If so, or if you would like to become involved, please join the Environmental Ministries Action Network (EMAN). 

Participants in EMAN will work with their churches and/or presbyteries to care for God’s creation. PC(USA) Environmental Ministries will be in regular communication with EMAN participants to provide them with tools and resources for this work. 

The goal of EMAN is to inspire and equip Presbyterians to care for God’s earth and to increase the channels of communication between PC(USA) Environmental Ministries and congregations and presbyteries with environmental stewardship programs.

What are the benefits of participation in EMAN?

  • Regular email updates from Environmental Ministries with information on new resources, upcoming events, advocacy opportunities, and more.
  • Receive a guide for being involved in environmental stewardship in your church/presbytery.
  • Be eligible to apply for grant funds for an environmental project at your church/presbytery (coming soon).
  • Receive a list of other EMAN participants in your presbytery.

What is expected of EMAN participants?

  • Publicize new resources, programs, events, and Earth Day Sunday resources from Environmental Ministries in your presbytery and church.
  • Connect with other EMAN participants in your presbytery.
  • Update Environmental Ministries on how your church and/or presbytery are involved in environmental stewardship every 6 months.

  • In addition to building raised beds this spring in cooperation with the trails system organization we are developing a native grassland and wildflower area adjacent to our building. by Skip Dunford on 02/02/2012 at 3:36 p.m.

  • Dear Ellie, This sounds like a great garden! You might wish to contact someone at the Presbyterian Hunger Program for more information (, including Katie's suggestion of the "Let's Move!" program. by Rebecca Barnes-Davies on 01/11/2012 at 1:03 p.m.

  • We too have a "church garden." To date, we have donated over 100 lbs of fresh veggies to our local interfaith ministry which feeds the poor. We have also planted about 7 blueberry bushes for future picking. I would like to know more about gleaning and how to share this with the poor. by Ellie Wilson on 09/01/2011 at 3:20 p.m.

  • What an exciting ministry that your church is undertaking! You can sign up to be a "Let's Move" congregation at to help meet the goal of getting 1,000 Presbyterian Churches involved in ending childhood obesity through projects like neighborhood gardens. Also, we'd love to have someone from your church join the Environmental Ministries Action Network if anyone is interested. Both programs will offer resources and ideas to churches working on projects like yours. by Katie Holmes on 06/23/2011 at 7:45 a.m.
