Boundary Training for Clergy

Central Woodward Christian Church
3655 Big Beaver Road
Troy, MI 48084


This program, required for Michigan Disciples Clergy every five years, covers essential information and strategies for creating and maintaining a safe environment for vital ministry in today's changing world.

Registration fee includes all materials and lunch.

All ordained and commissioned clergy are required to take boundary training and renew that training every five years to receive standing. A number of us are out of date, and others will by the end of the year. The Commission on the Ministry is requesting that all clergy who took boundary training in 2013 or before take it before the end of the year, or standing will not be renewed until the requirement is fulfilled. 

While retired clergy are not currently required to take boundary training, it is wise to do so (and we will be discussing implementing such a requirement). While this training is not required for lay persons, it would be a valuable training, especially for persons working with youth and children.

We are working on providing boundary training opportunities in several sites across the state so that everyone can find a location that is closer to home.
