Keynote Speakers

The main sessions of the Environmental Stewardship Conference in Boise, Idaho are now on-line - Rediscovering the church's responsibility to lead my example in Creation Care.

Ken Wilson
"The Evangelical Awakening to Environmental Concern: A Pastor's Perspective"
Senior Pastor at the Vineyard Church of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Ken is a recent participant in Scientists and Evangelicals United to Protect Creation. In collaboration with Dr. Joel Hunter, Ken has compiled “Creation Care: An Introduction for Busy Pastors,” a resource to assist pastors in equipping their congregations to care for creation.

Richard Cizik
"For God’s Sake: Caring for Creation"
Vice President for Governmental Affairs of the National Association of Evangelicals, an umbrella organization that represents over 60 evangelical denominations nationwide. He has become a leading proponent of Creation Care since 2002.

Tri Robinson

"The Advent-ure"
Senior Pastor of Vineyard Christian Fellowship of Boise. He is also the founder of "Let’s Tend the Garden", an environmental stewardship ministry that serves as a model for churches across the country. He is the author of two books, Saving God’s Green Earth and Revolutionary Leadership, published by Ampelon Publishing.

Scott Sabin

"Creation Care in Service to the Least of These"
Executive Director of Floresta, a Christian nonprofit organization, which reverses deforestation and poverty by transforming the lives of the rural poor in Mexico, Haiti, Dominican Republic and Tanzania. Scott has held this position for ten years, and has worked with Floresta for fourteen years, after beginning as a volunteer. Floresta has planted over 3.2 million trees, offered over 3500 small business loans, and advanced the gospel in over 120 communities.

These are four quite different speakers, all of which I enjoyed. If you needed to look at only one, I would pick the presentation by either Ken Wilson or Scott Sabin's.
