Before it was cool to be green, we at Wild Frontier have been encouraging youth workers to teach, talk, and live a creation care worldview because this is an issue many youth are concerned about and it is a Christian responsibility.  Creation Care is more than a trend. This is more than a political issue.  It is obedience to one of the first commands God gave Adam.  Genesis 1:28 tells us "Be responsible for the fish in the sea and the birds in the air, and for every living thing that moves on the face of the Earth." (The Message) When you study all of the scriptures with this eye, you will see that the Church should have been the leaders in any and all of the environmental movements.  We as Christians have a responsibility to fulfill to our Earth.  We always have.  It's too late to take the lead on this but we certainly can get involved.

Bringing your church and youth ministry near and direct to Creation Care is a youth ministry issue.  Our teens are becoming more and more passionate about this.  So are the ever‑so‑slow‑adapting adults.  Typical of adolescence, teens become passionate about many things that don't transfer into their adult years.  However, we have hope that with a proper approach to Creation Care in youth ministry we can address that passion and teach lifelong habits about our responsibility to "every living thing that moves on the face of Earth."

"People frequently ask me how we can choose between caring for the poor and caring for creation, as if they are mutually exclusive. The question surprises me, because my own concern for the earth grew directly out of concern for the poor.  It is true that our immediate convenience often comes into conflict with the long-term needs of creation.  ...But more often than not, care of the environment lines up with the long-term needs of people."  --Scott C. Sabin, Tending to Eden, p. 88, www.PlantwithPurpose.org

Don't Call Them Environmentalists

A Pew Research Center poll (2014) asked participants if they felt the term "environmentalist" describes them very well. Over 40% of respondents said yes, except when it came to millennials. Just 32% of them agreed. One millennial offered the following reason: “environmentalist” has become too politicized and outdated.
