GIPL’s Second Annual Coastal Green Team Summit will be held on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Savannah, GA.  All Creation Care champions and environmental stewards from congregations across the state are invited to join us for this interfaith celebration featuring an inspiring keynote address, educational workshops, and a sustainably-sourced lunch.

Featuring Keynote Address
“Reforesting Faith:
What Trees Teach us About the Nature of God
by Dr. Matthew Sleeth
, Executive Director of Blessed Earth

Dr. Sleeth is a former atheist and chief of hospital medical staff, turned eco-activist.  Following a new calling, Dr. Sleeth resigned from his position as chief of the medical staff and director of the ER to teach, preach, and write about faith and the environment throughout the country. More information.

This will be a great opportunity to network with other people of faith committed to our shared work of caring for the Earth. You’ll walk away with best practices for engaging your congregation back home too!


This year, GIPL is offering two ticket options for the Green Team Summit. Every ticket includes the opportunity to engage in networking, keynote address, two workshops, and a sustainably-sourced lunch.  Read More.
