This course meets the requirements for mandatory training in the Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response Policy and Procedures and the Workplace Discrimination, Harassment & Violence Prevention & Response Policy  for Ministry Personnel, Candidates and Licensed Lay Worship Leaders.

We'll explore some of the common boundary issues that can emerge in the practice of ministry, and discuss how to expand our repertoire of strategies for dealing with situations that can require careful navigation. The courses will be an opportunity to discuss best practices with others in church leadership across the country; find out how others cope with complicated boundary issues, and, reflect on how to ensure that the church continues to be a safe and hospitable place for everyone.

We'll use some video clips from FaithTrust Institute and case studies developed from real-life ministry settings in Canada to spark small group discussion. The session uses the online Zoom platform, moving back and forth between plenary and small group discussions. Before the course, you will receive the Zoom connection information and some material to review in preparation.
