Creation Care and Christian Mission: The Gospel in Action

How should Christians respond to growing concerns over the environment? And what does this have to do with Christian mission? This seminar will explore the biblical basis for creation care before discussing how this relates practically to the church’s mission. You will hear about real-life examples of faith in action as well as discussing how to apply this in your own contexts.
