Creating Boundaries for Healthy Church Relationships
Healthy Boundaries are essential to create healthy relationships, even extraordinary relationships, in your group or church. This video curriculum will give participants an understanding of what boundaries are and how they can help. Participants will discuss boundaries relating to finances, dealing with power and vulnerability, communications (including social media, email, websites, etc.), pastoral relationship and relationships within the congregation. Activities in the program will allow participants to look at boundaries their congregation currently uses and whether these boundaries are working, helping or hindering their ministry together.

Online Elders Workshop
What does it mean to be an elders in today’s church? Now the elders of your congregation can get the training they need to be even more faithful and effective in their role as spiritual leaders. In this downloadable, interactive workshop, elders will have a chance to learn more about Biblical descriptions of the eldership and the work of elders from a Disciples of Christ tradition. Elders are invited to talk about the roles they fill in their own congregation and reflect upon their personal strengths and growing edges. Elders can consider how they can deepen their faith and grow in their ability to serve—as an individual and as a group of elders. This workshop gives elders the opportunity to engage in conversation about how they share in ministry with the pastor and with one another.
