Job Description:

Global Ministries EarthKeepers is a training program for United Methodists to develop Creation Care projects in their communities.

  2. develop a plan for connecting EarthKeepers via affinity groups;
  3. develop a system for encouraging and tracking regional cohort and affinity group meetings;
  4. develop a system for requesting, receiving and organizing success stories;
  5. develop a system for onboarding new EarthKeepers into cohort and affinity groups;
  6. develop a system for sharing news among EarthKeepers that is accessible to those who do not wish to use mainstream social media channels.

  • Some understanding of the non-profit work environment and the concepts of Creation Care.
  • Strong analytical skills and attention to detail.
