EcoFaith Network

Welcome to the EcoFaith Network of the Northeastern Minnesota Synod!

Our mission is to live out God’s call to be stewards of the earth for the sake of the whole creation.

The EcoFaith Network of NEMN Synod is made up of congregations, individuals, and other partners across the Northeastern Minnesota Synod and beyond. The Network’s website is found here.

The current co-chairs of the EcoFaith network are Kristin Foster, retired pastor, and Dave Carlson, pastor at Gloria Dei in Duluth.
