CCSP's Organizational Structure and Partners
CCSP is an integral member of a synergistic group of creation care programs comprising an umbrella organization entitled Christians for Environmental Stewardship. Christians for Environmental Stewardship (CES) has two primary divisions, a Christian grassroots environmental advocacy division whose activities are organized under a program entitled Restoring Eden, and a division devoted to leadership and education entitled the Center for Environmental Leadership.
The Center for Environmental Leadership (CEL) is devoted to two things. The first is helping individuals, institutions, and communities act on their convictions to care for creation, and the second is to educate the next generation of Christian environmental leaders through CCSP, and a peer-to-peer Christian student leadership program entitled Renewal.
More information about each of CCSP's synergistic partners is provided below.
To achieve its twin goals of helping individuals, institutions, and communities act on their convictions to care for creation, and educating the next generation of Christian environmental leaders, the Center for Environmental Leadership convenes strategic gatherings to explore critical environmental issues and practical responses; coordinates scholarly reviews of environmental issues and publishes policy papers that cut through the confusion so institutions can make sound environmental policies; offers topical, practical open-enrollment seminars, workshops, and courses; and finally trains and educates future generations of Christian environmental leaders through the Creation Care Study Program and Renewal.
Renewal is a student-led college creation care network. Through its work on college campuses Renewal endeavors to inspire, connect, and equip colleges students to care for creation. Together through prayer, service, and action Renewal aims to expand the creation care movement, and whenever possible support existing initiatives.
