Nominate a Deserving Individual or Church/Group for a PEC Award
PEC is excited about our national conference, Down-to-Earth Advocacy and Action, September 15 –18 at Montreat Conference Center in North Carolina and are looking forward to seeing you there. We will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary at the conference and will also be presenting our annual awards. Even if you cannot attend, you can participate in a couple ways:
• Share your recollections of the first 20 years of Presbyterians for Restoring Creation/Presbyterians for Earth Care by writing about your experiences at www.pecmemories.com
• Nominate a deserving person or organization to receive one of two Presbyterians for Earth Care Awards.
If you are a member of PEC, you are encouraged to nominate awardees. The William
Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to an individual whose
faith-based work for the environment deserves recognition. Rev. William Gibson was a founding member of PEC, author and eco-justice advocate,
and editor of the book, “Eco-Justice – The Unfinished Journey.” Previous
awardees include the Rev. William Gibson and our other founders, the Revs. Bill
Knox and John Jackson.

The Restoring Creation Award is given to a faith-based organization including congregations, governing bodies, ecumenical agencies, and Presbyterian-related entities for environmental work that is particularly praise-worthy. Montreat Conference Center and Warren Wilson College have received this award in the past.
We generally look for award nominees within the Presbytery or general region of the conference: North Carolina or Southeastern US. However, nominations from other areas or regions are welcome. Click HERE for more information about the awards, the Rev. William Gibson, and previous award winners.
If you are not a member or your membership is not current you can join or renew today. Then go to the nomination form and fill it out with your favorite awardee.
