End Date:

Due to attendence and current travel concerns.  Future dates of this same training are listed below.


Saturday, March 14th   ~   9:00am – 5:00pm
at Legacy Christian Church, 216 N. Sycamore St., Harrison, OH 45030


This workshop is designed for new and current ministers wishing to gain standing with the Christian Church in Ohio.  The Ohio Policies and Criteria for the Order of the Ministry, requires ministers to complete a training in both anti-racism and ethical boundaries every five years in order to remain in good standing. United Church of Christ and other Ministers are also welcome to attend for their denominational requirements.

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:  professional, 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 and discuss 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 Ohio Commission on the Ministry.
