What We Do
Launched in the fall of 2016 by a gift from Ray Martin, CSCS advances thinking and action in Anabaptist and other faith communities to mitigate climate change. In order to establish a mission-focused, data-driven foundation for the center’s work, initial activities are focused on broad-based research and strategic planning.
The research includes large-scale survey of the U.S. Mennonite Church attitudes and beliefs on topics such as conservation, sustainable living, creation care and climate change. CSCS plans to make its initial findings from the survey available to the public in the summer of 2017. In the coming years, the center expects to initiate and support a wide variety of innovation, research and education efforts.
