MSMC requires that all credentialed persons take Healthy Boundary Training in their first year in the conference, and to take a refresher every three years. Non-credentialed leaders are also encouraged to take the training and to provide opportunities in the congregation to discuss appropriate boundaries, roles, and accountability. Contact a member of the Conference Minister Team or watch Zing! for more information. The next HBT is scheduled for November 9 in Colorado Springs.
