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 should receive information from the Regional office notifying them of the year they are required to take Boundaries training in order to retain their ministerial standing.  If you did not receive this information please contact the regional office at  (478) 743-8649 or email

There will be two options for Healthy Boundaries for Clergy workshops in 2018. Healthy Boundaries 201 is 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. Healthy Boundaries 101 is a foundational workshop in healthy boundaries with an emphasis on power and vulnerability and discussions on transference, friendships, dating, and self-care.

During 2018, we will continue to collaborate with the Southeast Conference of the United Church of Christ to offer the workshop to both Disciples ministers in Georgia and UCC ministers in the Southeast Conference.
