Ethics for Active Retired Clergy
Time & Location
About the Event
Boundary Awareness Training Boundary Awareness Training is required of all authorized ministers. Each authorized minister is required to complete eight (8) hours of Boundary Awareness Training every five years. In 2013, the Southern California Nevada Conference of the United Church of Christ in partnership with the Pacific Southwest Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) made significant modifications to Boundary Awareness Training offered.
New Format We have replaced the one-day, eight-hour training with a modular approach. A four (4) hour module on sexual ethics will remain a core module and is required of all authorized ministers. The additional four (4) hours can be fulfilled by any combination of several new modules that have been developed to address all the areas of the Minister’s Code of Ethics. The new modular training is intended to empower authorized ministers to properly identify and address the many issues around boundaries they will engage in their calling. You can choose to complete your training in one day or pick modules from multiple days. The cost for participating in all or part of a Boundary Awareness Training day is $30.00 (includes the text for the sexual ethics course and all handouts). See list of offerings for 2020 below.
Change to Sexual Ethics Module The Sexual Ethics Course now consists of an online session and a face-to-face session. The online session will be a two (2) hour module that will require you to have read the book, Professional Sexual Ethics; A Holistic Ministry Approach. We will provide you with this text when you register. You will be required to submit reflection papers and participate in online dialogue based on this book. The Face-to-Face session will be a two (2) hour module that will be dialogical in nature and focus on some case study work.
