Programs

Be the Spark 

Convening leaders in faith communities for training and inspiration. Work with us to design a custom program for your faith community or denomination, or participate in a four-part workshop series to build community and skills for leading in your faith community. 

Youth Be The Spark

Empowering youth to lead the way. Participants from area youth groups gather for outdoor fun and leadership training and then return to their home congregations to spark the movement. MNIPL provides on-going mentorship and support for participating congregations. This program is supported by a grant from Hennepin Green Partners and St. Luke Presbyterian Church.

Climate Conversations 

Breaking the silence on climate change through a relational approach to organizing. MNIPL will come to your faith community to facilitate large group or small group conversations and will train you to launch a climate conversation campaign in your community. This work is funded in part through a grant from REAMP.

Cool Congregations

Empowering faith communities to become carbon neutral. Work with our MN GreenCorp member and MNIPL staff to create a carbon reduction plan for your congregation. We will work with you to conduct an energy audit and to create a certified carbon reduction plan for your house of worship. We will also help your congregation connect the dots between what you do in your home congregation with the global movement, so that your actions are part of the emerging social justice story. This work is funded in part by the MN GreenCorp Program.
