Boundary Training for Rostered Leaders and Professional Ministry Workers  Boundary workshops are planned across our synod every year so that rostered leaders and professional ministry workers receive the necessary training and education hours required by many church insurers and by our synod clergy sexual abuse prevention policy. All leaders should complete a basic or advanced boundary workshop at least once every three years. All rostered leaders are expected to attend one of these events. Compensated youth workers and musicians are encouraged to attend.  Watch here for 2018 dates.

Registration for all Boundary Workshops start at 8:30 a.m., and we begin our work promptly at 9 a.m. We break for lunch (provided) and will complete our work by 3:30 p.m. The cost is $25. To register drop simply drop a note to Cathy Dietrich (cdeitrich@lss-elca.org) indicating which workshop you plan to attend and whether you will send payment by mail or bring it to the event. Please let us know if you have dietary restrictions.
