The Green Task Force is an environmental coalition made up of faculty, staff, administration, students, and alumni of Lexington Theological Seminary. The team enables the institution to fulfill its mission of “preparing faithful leaders for the church and strengthening the church’s participation in God’s mission for the world” specifically by attending to the ecological justice issues that affect ministry and God’s Creation. The group focuses on both short-term and long-range goals for helping the seminary bring healing and wholeness to Creation and God’s people. These goals include working with LTS constituencies in the areas of academic curriculum, worship, building and grounds, community life, public ministry, and financial investments, in order to “green” the seminary and holistically participate in God’s restoration of our planet.
- The Green Task Force was recognized as the first Green Chalice Seminary in January 2022!
