Professional Development

We all have to continue to grow, professionally and personally. Boundaries training is a requirement for all authorized ministers in the United Church of Christ. Associations also require CEUs (Continuing Education Units) as a form of professional accountability. These range from involvement in the wider Church, to independent study and workshops or classes.
