Climate Boot Camp Workshop


This in-depth workshop equips faith leaders to speak confidently and knowledgeably about our present climate crisis, and to respond as people of faith to this critical challenge. The workshop covers scientific, theological, pastoral and behavioral research dimensions of addressing environmental issues with people of faith in your community, and offers space not only for conversation but also for exploring strategies to implement change in participants’ settings for ministry.

The workshop is led by Dr. Ben Brabson (Indiana University climate scientist), the Rev. Wyatt Watkins (pastor of Cumberland First Baptist Church in Indianapolis, Indiana —an Alliance congregation—and H-IPL’s board chair), and the Rev. Dr. Trisha Tull (biblical scholar, author of Inhabiting Eden: Christians, the Bible, and the Ecological Crisis, Westminster John Knox, and H-IPL’s former program director).

According to a recent article in Grist, most people care about climate change but don’t talk about it simply because they don’t hear others doing so. This is a pattern of inaction that we have a moral responsibility to break—by talking and acting!
