Seminary Stewardship Alliance logoGordon-Conwell has recently entered into the Seminary Stewardship Alliance (SSA) with several other institutions who are dedicated to reconnecting Christians with the biblical call to care for God’s creation. The goal of the SSA is for member seminaries to teach, preach, live, inspire, and hold each other accountable for good stewardship practices. This will be accomplished specifically through catalyzing sustainable practices, advancing scholarship on creation care and nourishing dialogue within and among seminaries.

The SSA was initiated by Dr. Matthew Sleeth, founder and director of Blessed Earth, whose biography is provided below.
