Level 1 (Basic) Sexual Ethics Workshops provide the essential, ethical and legal dimensions of appropriate healthy boundaries for those serving in ministerial roles. The primary purpose of this workshop is to educate participants on how to incorporate such healthy boundaries into their professional and personal behavior.
The Level 1 (Basic) Workshop is mandatory for all persons seeking certification as candidates in ministry, candidates for ministerial roles and for all other individuals beginning ministerial roles within the Eastern PA Conference. Peninsula-Delaware’s comparable course may be substituted. Please note: The pastoral care team of the Board of Ordained Ministry is currently reviewing similar courses offered by area seminaries but at this time, they are not approved as a substitute for the conference course. After-the-fact requests to accept these courses as fulfilling this requirement will be denied.
The Level 1 (Basic) may be taken as a “refresher” workshop (instead of, or in addition to, an Advanced Level Workshop) – in fulfillment of the quadrennium continuing education requirement – by all serving in a ministerial role who have previously completed a Level 1 course.
