Rev. Robyn Hartwig serves as part-time pastor/organizer for EcoFaith Recovery and three-quarter time associate pastor for St. Andrew Lutheran Church. Her leadership of EcoFaith Recovery has been greatly enhanced by her training as a GreenFaith Fellow in 2009 and 2010. Her participation in the 2008 Climate Project training of 150 religious community leaders by former vice-president Al Gore, also influenced her leadership in the organization. She received training from Lutherans Restoring Creation to serve as a “Green Congregations” trainer. She also participated in the Industrial Areas Foundation’s Northwest Regional Leadership Institute to enhance her abilities as a faith-based organizer. In her free time Robyn reconnects with the natural world through hiking, drumming, and dancing.
