All pastoral leaders – Ministers of Word and Sacrament (including those who are Honorably Retired ministers serving congregations), Certified Christian Educators, Commissioned Pastors, ministers of other denominations serving our congregations, lay pastors, and people on the Pulpit Supply List – are required to complete a Healthy Boundary Training Workshop. At the February 24, 2018 meeting of the Presbytery, the body approved the requirement that each pastoral leader must complete the training every five years such as carbitral .

All pastoral leaders who have not completed a Healthy Boundary Training workshop after 2014 must attend an event and received a letter last week notifying them of this. The workshops will be led by Kanawha Pastoral Counseling Center Executive Director Sky Kershner and Presbytery staff. Each event will be limited to 15 participants, and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no cost for the workshops.

The Healthy Boundary Training workshops for the summer are:

  • Friday, June 14 – Presbytery office, 9 a.m.
  • Wednesday, August 28 – Presbytery office, 9 a.m.

Reservations can be made by calling the Presbytery office or emailing
