American Baptist Churches of Pennsylvania and Delaware

Creation Justice Network Program Leader

 

I am the Reverend Tom Carr, Coordinator of the ABC,USA Creation Justice Network (CJN) and I write as the Interim Program Leader for CJN. In January, we received a grant from the World Relief Committee to engage, encourage and equip congregations in the essential ministry of creation justice. One of the main emphases of the grant is for congregations to become a Creation Justice Congregation which means that the congregation would commit itself to intentional work towards the healing of God’s creation which includes justice for all people. Though our brochure is being updated, you can gain a glimpse of the program by checking out the link - https://www.abc-usa.org/creation-justice/creation-justice-congregations/.

As you may have noted, I introduced myself as the “Interim” as we are currently seeking to find a Program Leader to move the two-year grant forward. The attached is a position description and I am hoping that you would distribute this to those you may know who have the interest and skills to apply for this position. You will note that this is not full-time; the first year is for 48 hours a month and the second year is 60 hours a month. To apply, please have the applicant respond by sending a message to, CJNSteering@gmail.com. If you have any questions or would like to speak with me about the work that CJN is engaged in, feel free to email me at thomascarr1957@gmail.com.

Thank you for your consideration and for your work on behalf of the Gospel. What you do matters so very much. I’m now retired after almost 40 years in pastoral ministry and so, I know that in these very difficult times, the Light continues to shine in so many ways, including through you. I am grateful.

Peace be with you.
