Our mission is to inspire and equip Christians to know and love their local places through practical, community-focused conservation. We see care for creation as a worshipful response to God in recognition that all things have been created through and for Jesus, in him all things hold together, and, through his death and resurrection, all things are redeemed. We believe that God calls his people to steward creation, but many faith communities are unsure of where to begin.
Our Conservation@Church programs are a way to do just that. We are working with A Rocha USA to develop resources and opportunities for churches to explore what it means to know and love their places in practical ways. There are several ways for local churches to get involved.
Partner with Us
What are the needs and opportunities in your church’s place? Is there a creek that needs to be cleaned? Vacant land that can be turned into a community garden? An entire watershed that can be adopted? As you work to restore people and places in your community, we are here to provide you with resources, support, and advice through our partner program.
A Rocha can help you begin new or continue existing conservation efforts in your community and sustain your project over the long haul. In addition to Nashville A Rocha events and resources, as an A Rocha USA Church Partner, you will have access to a number of educational and worship resources, opportunities to connect with other A Rocha partners and projects, and use of A Rocha branding.

Nashville A Rocha Activities
We are always happy to have new friends join us for any of our events and workshops. We send periodic email updates to local churches with bulletin and newsletter-ready blurbs about our upcoming activities. Local churches also have an opportunity to host certain Nashville A Rocha events.
