Amplifying Green Theology

For over a century, African American churches have been on the front lines of the most important social movements in the US. Our churches have been centers of resilience where people can go to have needs met in a multiplicity of ways—spiritually, emotionally, physically, and socially. Green The Church (GTC) is a national initiative designed to tap into the power and purpose of the African American church community and explore and expand the role of churches as catalysts for environmental and economic resilience.
