About GINI

Green Interfaith Network strives to be a model for green faith communities in the Southern Appalachians and to become a spiritual voice for environmental sustainability in the Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia region 

GINI's volunteers -- individuals, families, and our growing network of congregations -- are the driving force behind the vision of faith-based, sustainable living and Earthcare in the Southern Appalachians.

We offer resources on Earth stewardship,  eco-justice and advocacy, and spiritual tools for growth. Through eventsmeetings, and our web-based community we also offer opportunities to connect with others who share similar values. We celebrate the successes of our area faith communities. Read some success stories from the Tricities area in northeastern Tennessee here.

GINI can help faith communities undertake energy assessments and and improve energy sufficiency at their houses of worship through our Greening Grants!!
