Program for Environmental Ministry and Leadership

McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago is going to offer a Certificate in Environmental Ministry and Leadership, through a partnership with Faith in Place, a Chicago-based organization educating faith communities about clean energy and sustainable farming.

The program is designed for pastors and leaders of religious and nonprofit institutions who want to infuse eco-justice and care for the earth into their communities and missions.  Courses will take place over four two and one-half day sessions in Chicago, which will explore faith and environmental issues through many disciplines.  Sessions are scheduled for August and October of 2010, and February and May of 2011.

The curriculum for the program sounds exciting, starting with a basic overview of ecological and religious issues, it also explores biblical and theological foundations for eco-justice and earth care, and culminates with a session on “practicing green faith.”

The program is currently accepting applications.  Learn more and find an application on McCormick’s website.
