Mennonite Church Canada has appointed Sandy Plett as climate action coordinator, effective Nov. 28. The two-year term position coordinates efforts across regional churches to build understanding and action around the climate crisis.
Plett, who lives in Morden, Man., co-facilitates Mennonite Church Manitoba’s Climate Action Working Group.
She was director of camping and youth ministries for MC Manitoba in the early 2000s and organized and led worship services for two alternative models of church between 2010 and 2018: Simple Church in Winnipeg and This Ground at Camp Assiniboia.
Most recently Plett has facilitated Faithful Climate Conversations, an initiative started by For the Love of Creation, a national coalition of faith-based organizations working for climate justice.
