McCormick Offers Certificate in Environmental Ministry and Leadership
Beginning in August of 2010, McCormick Theological Seminary will be offering the Certificate in Environmental Ministry and Leadership in partnership with Faith in Place, a Chicago-based organization educating faith communities about clean energy and sustainable farming.
The certificate program takes an interactive, cross-disciplinary approach to the faith and environment conversation, leveraging Faith in Place’s experience with a number of innovative ecological initiatives and McCormick’s expertise in leadership development for a variety of ministry settings.
Designed for pastors and leaders of religious and nonprofit institutions seeking to integrate ecological justice and care for God’s world into their communities and core missions, the program consists of a series of two and one-half day sessions held at McCormick’s Hyde Park campus on Chicago’s South Side. Sessions are scheduled for August and October of 2010, and February and May of 2011.
