LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

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.

All in the Circle Creative Arts & Nature Camp 

All in the Circle is carefully designed to give children the opportunity to fall in love with the earth and to be co-creators of a culture of kindness. Informed by the wisdom, teachings and experience of educators, spiritual leaders, and developmental psychologists, children gain the skills and “know-how” to live peacefully with each other and the natural world.

Interfaith Garden

The Gandhi Mahal Interfaith Garden is a collaboration of MNIPL, Gandhi Mahal Restaurant, and First Nations Kitchen. Together, we are exploring the intersections between food justice, faith, and climate change by growing healthy food for our partners and creating a radically welcoming space for community to thrive.

Interfaith Dialogue 

MNIPL seeks to reduce carbon while simultaneously building equity and justice in our communities. Interfaith cooperation is an essential piece of our work. We are an interfaith organization, made up of people of faith and conscience that represent diverse faith and spiritual traditions.
