No-Cost Energy Practices Impacting the Mission of the Church
By Colby May, Energy with a Purpose
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 30% of the energy we use in our churches is wasted. Churches in the US spend nearly $5B in energy per year. What if we could capture that 30% at no cost and redirect the savings to global missions, to reach the unreached? I am a Certified Energy Manager, a Mission Pastor, and an alumnus of Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in Boston. I love missions and I love energy management; it seems like an odd pairing, but in the next few paragraphs I hope you see that is not the case.
