How does LRC support outdoor ministries?

We have three purposes:

  1. To offer stories and reports about ELCA camps and retreat centers care for Earth.
  2. To provide resources to foster a comprehensive approach to care for creation.
    — In the programs and activities for participants
    — In the treatment of your buildings and grounds as model for creation-care.
  3. To promote networking among the ELCA outdoor ministry sites.
