Welcome to Earth Ministry
Earth Ministry’s mission
To inspire and mobilize the religious community to play a leadership role in building a just and sustainable future.
Washington Interfaith Power & Light is a project of Earth Ministry and part of a growing national network of religious groups organizing an interfaith response to climate change.
Our latest issue of Earth Letter looks at nature and environmental justice in our urban landscapes.
For over 20 years, Earth Ministry has been the statewide leader in engaging the religious community in environmental stewardship and advocacy. Our Greening Congregations Program was the first in the country to help houses of worship implement sustainable practices, and our faithful advocacy program is on the cutting edge of empowering clergy and lay leaders to speak out on public policy issues. Through education, outreach, organizing, and training, Earth Ministry builds a powerful moral constituency of people of faith taking action for the health of our communities and the environment.
