PROFESSIONAL BOUNDARY TRAINING/COACHING: PROTECTING THE COVENANT RELATIONSHIP
Professional Boundaries are not just about inappropriate sexual behavior, nor are they always a result of mental illness or malicious intent. Boundaries between pastor and people exist on multiple levels. The key to reduction of risk is personal awareness and training in healthy relationship connections.
Taking a New Look at the Issues:
The need for training in a broader spectrum of understanding is essential to safe connections between all persons involved in ministry. Our training program helps both professionals and lay leaders gain understanding of boundary vulnerabilities, personal insight into their own interpersonal behavior potential, basic safeguards for the church through established policy, and means for maintaining personal accountability.
