Director of Faith Networks | he/him
As Director of Faith Networks, Buff guides the MNIPL team that helps congregations and area networks take bold climate action. Having served as a congregational pastor for 15 years, he understands the unique challenges and opportunities faith communities face in taking up climate justice work and also how the work can invigorate communities both small and large.
Having worked as a wilderness guide, a market gardener, a news reporter, and a non-profit entrepreneur, Buff brings a wide variety of perspectives to environmental justice efforts. He welcomes preaching or speaking with faith groups and strategizing with leaders about how to bring their gifts to the climate movement. For rejuvenation, he enjoys poetry, canoeing, and listening to his children play jazz.
