Following Jesus into a changing world requires a commitment to developing and modeling healthy boundaries in all areas of life. As a synod, we are committed to providing you with opportunities to explore the intersections of healthy boundaries & your core identity as a beloved child of God.

Merriam-Webster defines a boundary as, “something that shows where an area ends and another area begins.” It’s important to periodically step back and reevaluate where we end and where other people begin. The Power and Boundaries Training will be a safe space in which we can come together for thoughtful reflection and mutual learning.


Rev. Emily Carson will facilitate our discussion on strengthening healthy boundaries. We will also engage in discussions around boundaries in congregational life and the response of the Office of the Bishop to boundary violations. Please note this training is open to all congregational staff members, so feel free to invite your team.


*Notice: Registrations will be available exclusively to SEMN Synod folks until January 31, when they will open to folks in other synods. This is to give those within the synod a chance to be part of a 2023 workshop.

9 AM-Noon, online
Register here:


Early registration: $20 (until 1/31/23)

*This synod encourages all leaders (clergy, deacons, faith formation, and church staff) to attend a boundaries training every three years. If you have not attended a previous workshop, it is important that you make an effort to do so.
