Global Ministries seeks U.S.-based United Methodists to lead grassroots environmental projects that are action-oriented, antiracist, bold and entrepreneurial. 

Global Ministries EarthKeepers is a training program that equips laity and clergy to launch and grow environmental projects in their communities. Topics include eco-theology, antiracism, community organizing, and project planning. All participants plan a project during the training. 

This fall, October 5-8, 2023, will be the first in-person Global Ministries EarthKeepers training since the pandemic, held in three locations: Birmingham Alabama, Denver Colorado, and Hartford Connecticut. The cost of the program is underwritten by Global Ministries (except your transportation to the location). Find more information and the EarthKeeper application, which opened June 1 – at
