Healthy Boundaries 101 (in person)

Monday, Feb. 19, 2024

In 2015, Mennonite Church USA adopted a Churchwide Statement on Sexual Abuse. In this statement, the church committed to actions to prevent sexual abuse and policies to be followed if abuse occurs. In living out these commitments, both Mennonite Church USA and Mennonite Church Canada began requiring all credentialed pastors to participate in Healthy Boundaries Training.

Founded on a theological and ethical discussion of power and vulnerability, Healthy Boundaries focuses on the particular roles that pastoral caregivers fulfill within a spiritual community. This curriculum is designed to strengthen the understanding of the needs for boundaries, as a method of self-care and community care. The goal of the training is to increase understanding, self-awareness, accountability, the practice of healthy boundaries, integrity and safety.

This Leadership Clinic meets the Healthy Boundaries training requirement for credentialed leaders in Mennonite Church USA and Mennonite Church Canada. Participants attending this clinic will earn 0.7 CEU.
