CREATION JUSTICE MINISTRIES NEWS
The Creation Justice community is transitioning as we say goodbye to our beloved executive director Shantha Ready Alonso. While we are sad to see Shantha leave we are celebrating with her as she starts her new position at the Department of the Interior. Despite being in a transition, the Creation Justice staff and community continue to work to protect, restore, & rightfully share God’s creation as we go through the process of hiring a new executive director. Read Shantha's Farewell HERE.
