Clergy Boundaries in a Modern World

Effective evangelism also requires having an awareness of what constitutes good and bad boundaries, and knowing how issues of misconduct typically arise.  In addition to the daily in person interactions, we live in an era of instantaneous, electronic communication. Taking steps that can help prevent misconduct or the appearance of misconduct will strengthen our message to the world.  Note: Four Sexual Ethics/Boundaries/Safe Sanctuary trainings are required each quadrennium. Participants will be able to count this workshop as the first of the upcoming quadrennium.
