The Seminary Stewardship Alliance (SSA) brings together seminary leaders who covenant to teach, preach, model, and hold each other accountable for good stewardship practices.  Serving as a powerful catalyst for change, the SSA helps prepare the future pastors of our 300,000 houses of worship to take a leadership role in caring for God’s creation.

 

Specifically, the SSA:

  1. Catalyzes sustainable practices in seminaries
  2. Advances scholarship on creation care
  3. Nourishes dialog within and among seminaries
