Pathways in Ministry: Cultivating Healthy 
Boundaries in Ministry
Wednesday, April 23, 11:00am - 12:20pm, Wingate 202

How do you care for the people in your ministry and also practice self care? What happens when you find yourself attracted to a co-worker or member of a congregation you are serving? What do you do when someone tries to triangle you into a difficult situation? These questions and more will be explored to help students think about how to cultivate and nurture healthy boundaries in ministry. The workshop will be led by Jamie L'Enfant, the rector at St. Clement's Episcopal Church in Clemmons, who offers workshops and trainings on boundaries for ministers. Snacks will be provided, so please RSVP to Nic Williams by Monday, April 21 so we can adequately prepare.
