As clergy we interact with people with many vulnerabilities both in our congregations and our communities. This workshop will provide training regarding how to manage situations in which sexual ethics become an issue in ministry. Participants are invited to bring specific situations and cases from their ministry settings for exploration and discussion. CEU’s are available.
For more information, contact Rev. Jacqueline Hines at 610-495-6807 or 410-963-1721.
