Essential Boundaries for Wise Leaders 101 – The Basics

“As those called to leadership within the Body of Christ, we are blessed with opportunity and with responsibility.” – Bishop Brian Maas

The Nebraska Synod Essential Boundaries for Wise Leaders training program for Rostered Ministers and Parish Ministry Associates (ecumenical colleagues are welcome) is designed to enrich both our opportunity and responsibility as leaders for Christ’s church. More than a “boundaries workshop,” Essential Boundaries for Wise Leaders benefits participants in several ways, including:

  • enriching your understanding of “healthy boundaries” around personal time, health and wellness
  • helping the Nebraska Synod continue to be a healthy body with healthy leaders
  • renewing your sensitivity and awareness to safe practices as a faith leader
  • fulfilling our shared commitment to ministry with excellence and integrity
  • earning six (6) continuing education credits
