Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary and OFMN partner with the Climate Justice and Faith Center to bring this practice-based course.

This web-based three-part training in the arts of faith-rooted community organizing for climate justice will equip participants with skills, knowledge, spiritual grounding, and a community of support for organizing to address the climate crisis in ways that build racial and economic equity. A 3-day training session is followed by a mentored 12–week practice phase and a second training session of 2 days.

Participants Include:

  • Clergy and lay leaders in Christian traditions and other faith traditions or value systems who appreciate the contributions of critically engaged Christian theologies

  • Teams from congregations or synods/diocese/districts/regions

  • Recent seminary graduates in first calls

  • Seminary interns

  • Leaders developing new faith communities/congregations or reshaping existing congregations/faith communities

  • Community organizers who wish to equip themselves better for climate justice work

  • Organizations sending staff members or board members to the training
