About Ed Brown

Here’s a bit about me:Ed teaching seminar
My wife Susanna and I live in Madison WI.  We have four children who are all young adults – Melanie, Tim, Katrina and Amy – and one small white Bichon Frise whose unlikely name is Pumpkin.
I have have been serving Care of Creation Inc. as Executive Director since its founding in 2005.  We joined Craig and Tracy Sorley, who were then working with an environmental project in Kenya, to create one of the first ‘environmental missions’ organizations with a goal of mobilizing the Church toward a God-centered response to the environmental crisis. As Director and CEO of Care of Creation, I divide my time between directing the organization, fundraising, and speaking throughout the US and internationally on the topic of Creation Care.

My book is ‘Our Father’s World: Mobilizing the Church to Care for Creation‘, published in revised edition by InterVarsity Press in 2008.  The book has been praised by biologist and environmentalist E. O. Wilson as “beautiful and inspiring..” and by former President of Latin America Mission David Howard as “a remarkable combination of a broad spectrum of the environmental crisis today coupled with a deep understanding of God’s desire for his creation as developed in the Scriptures…”

Past tense:  I’ve had an interesting and varied career, having previously served as Chief Operating Officer for Au Sable Institute of Environmental Studies (where I first joined the environmental stewardship movement), and before that with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and as a pastor both in the US and overseas.  Interesting (and I think important) bit of trivia – both Susanna and I grew up as children of missionaries in the country of Pakistan, and we carry a love for that country and for overseas ministry with us to this day.

About our organization: Care of Creation Inc. is an environmental missions organization. It was founded in April, 2005, “to pursue a God-centered response to environmental challenges that brings glory to the Creator, advances the cause of Christ, and leads to a transformation of the people and the land that sustains them.” The organization currently has projects on the ground in Kenya and plans to expand to other countries in East Africa in the near future.

Care of Creation seeks to “mobilize the church” in various countries to focus on creation-care as an important part of ministry. Overseas projects include education, tree-planting and agricultural programs.
