Boundaries Training for Rostered Leaders

Rostered Leaders,

You are invited to take part in one of the three Online Boundaries Training, these trainings are required to be done every 3 years. With different options the goal is to get all rostered in the synod through training. During this online boundaries education session, rostered ministers will examine the dynamics of power, vulnerability, dual relationships and transference; identify best practices for work/life balance, social media engagement and addressing harassment; and plan how they will implement learnings in their ministry setting.
