Green The Church (GTC) is an initiative designed to tap into the power and purpose of the African American church community, and to explore and expand the role of churches as centers for environmental and economic resilience. Developed in partnership with Carroll Ministries and Pastor Ambrose Carroll (a Green For All Fellow), GTC works to empower church leadership and lay people to develop practical solutions to economic and environmental issues in the Black community.
On Thursday March 12th, some of the most influential African American church leaders in the country joined forces with the U.S. Green Building Council and Green For All to launch Green The Church. You can listen to this inspiring tele-conference right here.
