Healthy boundaries are key to healthy ministries. They are meant to create a safe container within which we can freely minister. This course will prepare you to develop and articulate your professional ethic of ministry. We will cover the importance of boundaries, pastoral authority and power dynamics, sexual health and ethics, harassment and abuse prevention, and self-care. This course will satisfy your theology/ethics elective.
