Healthy Boundaries in Retirement
The decision to retire from active ordained ministry (or as the Pension Boards likes to call it, “annuitizing”) brings about unique and often challenging issues related to professional boundaries.  Some of us leave the communities where we have served, others remain in these communities, some even desire to continue participating in the congregations from which we are retiring.  Whatever the circumstances, thoughtful consideration is essential as we contemplate future relationships with churches, associations and newly-called clergy who follow us in our ministries.   While clergy who have already retired are most welcome, this workshop will focus primarily on those who anticipate this transition in the next 5-10 years.
Facilitator: Rev. Chuck Erickson
Partners for Safe Environments
As our culture and cultural expectations change, the church is called to lead. Church safety policies are no exception.  The young people and vulnerable adults in our midst and in our communities deserve nurture and care founded in best practices that reflect our core values.  Actively engaged in mission and ministries of all types, we must model the highest standards of practice possible in order to establish and maintain safe and hospitable communities.  This workshop will train leaders in practices designed to maintain safe spaces in all aspects of congregational life.  Content will include:  Policy Updates; Standards for onsite and offsite activities; Healthy relationships in youth ministry and elder care; Safe communications and social media standards; Safe accommodations.
Facilitator: Karen Ziel
Bullies, Triangles & The Church
Like any other organization, a church may face challenges generated by people behaving badly.  In this workshop, we will address two of the most difficult of these challenges, bullying and triangulation, with tips on what to do. 
Facilitator: Dr. Ronald N. Casey, Psychologist
