American churches own vast portfolios of land and buildings. The stories in this series explore how congregations are working to steward those assets effectively in the context of a changing climate. Are these efforts working? What's the impact? And how might they gain broader support and traction? This reporting project, a collaboration between five Christian news organizations, takes on those questions. It is supported with funding from the Fetzer Institute.
