Who We Are

The EcoFaith Network NE-MN works in collaboration with Saint Paul Area Synod Care of Creation to promote the care of creation within and beyond synods.


The EcoFaith Network of the Northeastern Minnesota Synod is a growing network of ELCA Lutheran congregations and their members with a mission to live out God's call to be stewards of the earth for the sake of the whole creation.

The network encourages creation care awareness and action among the 133 congregations and serves as a catalyst for creation care awareness and action throughout the upper Midwest. The EcoFaith network meets on the third Wednesday of the month. For more information, contact


The Saint Paul Area Synod Care of Creation work group believes that we are called to care for God's creation as a central part of our Christian faith and identity. The group was established in 2018 to:

  • explore life-giving ideas

  • share best practices within our synod, the larger church and the community

  • become part of the public and teaching voice of the church


The Care of Creation work group is part of The Bishop's Committee for Public Witness. To join or for more information contact Don Schuld at or 651-491-2078 or Pr. Bob Lehner at 320-583-4732.
