Required Training for the Prevention of Clergy Misconduct

The policy and procedures document on Clergy Sexual Misconduct passed at the 2011 Regional Assembly requires all clergy in the Christian Church in Georgia to register and complete Healthy Boundaries Training every five years. Inactive Retired Ministers are exempt.

Clergy with standing in Georgia you have received information from the Regional Office containing a letter and a list of clergy with standing showing when you have taken Boundaries training and the year you must complete Boundaries Training to retain your Ministerial Standing. If you did not receive this information please contact Denise Bell, at (478) 743-8649 or email at

There will be two options for Healthy Boundaries for Clergy workshops in 2017, including Healthy Boundaries 201, an advanced discussion of healthy boundaries for clergy and church leaders, designed for those who have completed Healthy Boundaries 101. This workshop builds on the basics and applies boundaries principles to specific situations with particular emphasis on internet technology and social media.

During 2017, we will also be expanding our collaboration with the Southeast Conference of the United Church of Christ, including welcoming a workshop leader who is a UCC minister who has taken special training in the area of Healthy Boundaries, and offering the workshop in areas that reach UCC ministers.
