Newton, Monmouth, and West Jersey presbyteries are collaborating to offer two opportunities for boundary training this fall and have opened them to us in New Brunswick Presbytery too.
Both workshops will be led by Dr. David Olsen, co-author of the book, Saying No To Say Yes: Everyday Boundaries and Pastoral Excellence.
While Boundary Awareness workshops formerly focused exclusively on sexual boundaries in ministry, these workshops will also focus on other important boundaries, such as financial boundaries, conflict of interest, and complications of social media. The workshops will explore the internal and external resources we need to set and maintain boundaries, and will give special attention to improved levels of differentiation of self and emotional intelligence. Those who took part in this training in recent years found the day to be extremely worthwhile. David’s presentation is engaging and inspiring. There is no cost to you for this training. More details and registration information will be coming soon. For now, please note the dates on your calendar and plan to attend!
Saturday, October 22nd
10:30 am – 12 noon or 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Is your congregation’s approach to stewardship stuck in a rut? Are you living in a state of scarcity and longing for abundance? The “Creating a Culture of Generosity” Workshop is for you! You will leave this workshop with ideas for organizing your generosity/stewardship leadership group, communicating with the various generations composing your congregation, integrating all aspects of your church into the life of generosity and teaching the spirituality of generosity.
