Green Revolution: Coming together to care for creation

Speaker: Ben Lowe, Evangelical Environmental Network

Join us at 7 p.m., with coffee at 6:30 p.m.

Ben Lowe is Director of Young Adult Ministries for the Evangelical Environmental Network, where he promotes creation care as Christian discipleship among various organizations, colleges and universities.  Lowe's views on creation care were shaped early in his life. Growing up as a missionary kid in Singapore/Malaysia, he often dealt with water shortages and bad air quality due to mismanagement and abuse of natural resources. Carrying these experiences with him, he eventually found his way to Wheaton College where he majored in environmental studies and helped organize Wheaton's first national Climate Change Summit. His summers were filled working as an environmental educator with the Massachusetts Audubon Society and as a student researcher for fisheries projects in Corpus Christi, TX and on Lake Tanganyika, Tanzania.
