LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

If you're interested in organizing in your congregation for climate justice, this page is for you! We offer opportunities for leadership development in our Movement Builder Program and Community Connector roles, as well as many trainings and programs for individuals interested in developing their leadership skills.

Take a look at our leadership development options below by clicking on the titles, and email [email protected] with any questions.

Movement Builder Program

Movement Builders are key volunteer leaders, who are assigned a small group of Community Connectors, each representing a unique faith community. Movement Builders work in either circles, which are made up of faith denominations or religions (for example: Baha'i, Presbyterian, etc), or networks, which are determined by location (Mankato, Rochester, etc).

Community Connector

Community Connectors serve as a liaison between MNIPL and their congregation in order to support and inspire climate action in their community. They are assigned a Movement Builder for support, feedback, and coaching as they take action in their own faith community. Learn more!
