Ethical Boundaries Training

ETHICAL BOUNDARIES TRAINING
October 11th ~ 9:00am – 5:00pm
Because the position of minister in EVERY setting places the pastor in a position of power, this workshop explores how this power manifests itself in many different dimensions of ministerial life: profession, personal, sexual, and spiritual. For each of these dimensions there are boundaries of which we need to be aware and many we dare to cross for our own wellbeing, the wellbeing of individual congregants, and the wellbeing of our ministry with the congregation we serve. We explore discussing these boundaries in a workshop setting so when they present themselves in our ministry setting, we know how to react in an ethical way.
This workshop is required by the Commission on the Ministry for the Christian Church in Ohio. For maintenance of Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Ministerial Standing, this training must be completed every five (5) years. (See the Policies and Criteria for the Order of Ministry for more information.)
Please note a separate Anti-Racism training event will be announced soon for later in the Fall. Also, we are actively working on getting these training sessions more often throughout the year, so if you are unable to attend this one, there will be another offered soon.
