All clergy serving churches in the Great Plains conference are required to Boundary and Ethics training. Boundary training focuses on developing healthy boundaries in ministry and is specific to the role of a clergy person. Of particular concern is the power difference between a person in a ministerial role and a member of his or her congregation or a person being counseled. Boundary training also includes conversation about personal and professional health and the use of social media.
Boundary 101 trainings have been scheduled for those who have not previously had training, primarily for new clergy, DSA or CLM. This training must be renewed every four years be retaking Boundary 101 or by taking Boundary 201.
Boundary 201 trainings have also been scheduled for early 2017. This is for those who have already taken Boundary 101 and now need to be renewed.
If you have questions about your need for Boundary training please contact your district office. You may also contact Rev. Nancy Lambert by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (402-464-5994, ext 126).
