Where do I Draw the Line: Maintaining Boundaries in Life and in Ministry
Boundaries are a part of self-care. They are healthy, normal, and necessary. The goal of this training is to increase awareness of the need for healthy boundaries in life and in ministry. This training will cover topics such as theology and boundaries, transference and touch, personal needs and self-care, dual relationships, as well as emerging issues in maintaining healthy boundaries such as technology and social media. This workshop will explore clergy sexual misconduct (CSM), but also move beyond CSM to discuss the more mundane boundary challenges and the ordinary and vexing dilemmas that rob clergy of the experience of life-giving ministry. The goal of this training is not only to prevent sexual misconduct, but to promote life-giving, invigorating ministries that don’t just survive but thrive. Participants will walk away with a much deeper understanding of where boundary challenges come from, how to better respond to them, and how to work within themselves and their congregations to set boundaries that revive and strengthen their ministry.
This workshop will combine synchronous and asynchronous learning. Synchronous workshop time will be Saturday, June 25, 2022, from 10 – 1pm EST, via Zoom. Asynchronous learning will occur via personal reflection guided by selected chapters from the books, Boundaries, by Dr. Henry Cloud, and Dr. John Townsend, Saying No to Say Yes: Everyday Boundaries and Pastoral Excellence, by David Olsen and Nancy Devor, and Emotionally Healthy Spirituality: It’s Impossible to be Spiritually Mature, While Remaining Emotionally Immature by Peter Scazzero.
Detailed instructions will follow registration.
