About our partner
Georgia Interfaith Power & Light equips faith communities across the state of Georgia to care for Creation through worship, education, and the stewardship of our natural resources. GIPL was founded in 2003 by Rev. Woody and Carol Bartlett as part of the national Interfaith Power & Light movement. Since that time, GIPL has partnered with over 500 congregations, helping them reduce their energy consumption and costs and implement Creation care initiatives.
