“As a follower of Jesus I seek to honor God and love my neighbor by committing to pray faithfully and act boldly to care for the climate.”

One of the founding members of Climate Caretakers, Micah Challenge USA has just released this powerful film following four musicians to Paris for COP21.

Individual actions on climate change are critical, but gathering a group of believers to collectively address the problem promotes unity in the body of Christ and expands the impact that each of us have on our own. Caretaker chapters promote prayer and action in your community by gathering believers to learn about climate change, to grow spiritually, and to practically address this challenge as a team.
