Join the Rev. Judith Spindt, Director of Evangelical Mission for the Southwest Texas Synod, for Boundary Awareness Training on Tuesday, August 19 from 10:00-4:00 at Briarwood Retreat Center. The seminar will address how to establish and maintain personal and professional boundaries when dealing with coworkers, with parishioners, and with youth.
This one-day seminar is strongly recommended for all leaders in the church, rostered and lay, employed and volunteer. Most church insurance plans strongly recommend congregation leaders and staff attend this training; rostered leaders are expected to complete this training at least once every three years.
All staff and volunteers who work with youth and children should attend.
Cost for the seminar is $12 for lunch. To register (to attend in person or via live stream) please email Pastor Jane at email@example.com.
