UMC Creation Justice Movement

The mission of the UMC Creation Justice Movement is to collaborate and build networks and resources within and between United Methodist Churches in a system beyond the Mountain Sky Conference.  The initial focus will be to help the United Methodist Creation Justice ministries group build contacts within our Western Jurisdiction.  Want to learn more?  Contact Mary Beth Downing at

 The UM Creation Justice Movement will be offering a series of seven online workshops focused on building and strengthening Conference-level Creation Care ministries and teams.

The next workshop will be Monday, November 15 at 11:00 am MT | 1:00 pm ET. The topic will be What is our Mission Context for Creation Care? It will be led by Daniel Joranko and Pat Watkins. You can register for this second workshop HERE.

Dates for the other sessions will be announced shortly. In the meantime, the remaining five topics will be:

  • What is our vision for Creation Care?
  • Who and How Do We Recruit for Our Ministry?
  • How Do We Structure Our Ministry?
  • Moving to Mission: Activities on the Ground
  • How Might We Restore Ourselves in Mission?


These workshops are designed to focus on the particulars of your own context. They are open to anyone currently or hoping to be on a UMC Conference Creation Care Ministry team. The workshops are designed both as a series and as stand alone workshops – you are invited to participate in as many or as few as you are able. Please invite others in your networks who might be interested.
