Pacifica Synod Boundary Workshop
Wednesday, October 20, 2021
St. John’s Lutheran Church, Palm Desert
1:00 – 5:00 p.m. PDT 

Rostered Leader Boundary Workshops have been “on hold” during the past year of healthy distancing and minimal gatherings in the era of COVID-19. We’ve done this to help and support one another during the pandemic. Another way that we support one another is to encourage and promote responsible boundaries.

Why Should I attend a Boundary Workshop? 
Synod policy requires rostered ministers to participate in a Basic Boundary Workshop every three years that emphasizes the church’s expectations for their professional ethics, finances, social media use and prevention of sexual misconduct. The synod considers racial justice a necessary part of healthy boundaries. Please see the opportunity to participate in the “Undoing Racism” Training Workshop offered by the Pacifica Synod Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Work Group. We regret that these opportunities overlap; however, you must be present for the entire boundary workshop to receive your certificate of completion.

Register Now!
Registration will close on October 8th or when we reach a threshold of 25 participants. The cost for the workshop is $20.00 which includes lunch. If you have questions, including as to when you last participated in a boundary workshop please contact Rev. Terry Tuvey Allen at or Carol Youngman at As we will be working in small groups, please be aware of caring for your own health if you are in high risk category and bring a mask. We will be observing COVID-19 protocols. We plan to offer our next workshop in February or March of 2022.
