FOLLOWING JESUS IN A WARMING WORLD

Rev. Kyle Meyaard-Schaap is the Vice President of the Evangelical Environmental Network. He holds an undergraduate degree in religious studies from Calvin University (B.A. ’12), a Master of Divinity degree from Western Theological Seminary (M.Div. ’16), and is ordained in the Christian Reformed Church in North America (CRCNA). For the last 10 years, he has educated and mobilized Christians around the world to address the climate crisis as an act of discipleship and neighborly love.
His forthcoming book, Following Jesus in a Warming World: A Christian Call to Climate Action, uses stories from the field, theological and scriptural exploration, and practical advice to offer hope to Christians paralyzed by the scale of the climate crisis and turn it into action. A field guide for Christian climate action, the book is set to be published on Feb. 21.
Meyaard-Schaap’s environmental work has been recognized in many places. His work has been featured in national and international news outlets such as PBS, NPR, CNN, NBC News, The New York Times, Reuters, and U.S. News and World Report. Additionally, he has been named to Midwest Energy Group’s 40 Under 40, the American Conservation Coalition’s 30 Under 30, and the Grist 50 Fixers cohorts for his work on climate change education and advocacy. And in 2020, he was named a Yale Public Voices on the Climate Crisis Fellow.
