Sexual Ethics

2019-2020 Sexual Ethics Workshop Dates

Sexual Ethics Workshop Deadline Extension
Due to the suspension of in-person gatherings during April, the Sexual Ethics Workshop set for April 21 will not be held. To accommodate this change, the Cabinet and I, in consultation with our Conference Pastoral Counselor, will extend the deadline by one year for all clergy mandated to attend future workshops. For example, if you were originally due for a workshop during the 2020-21 conference year and did not attend the workshop last September, you will now have an additional year to complete this requirement. The next Sexual Ethics Workshop is scheduled for Thursday, September 17, 2020.

According to the Conference Sexual Ethics policy, this workshop is REQUIRED EVERY (3) THREE YEARS for any person serving under appointment by the bishop (clergy, local pastors, extension ministers, appointed lay speakers). Cost is $35, which includes lunch (collected at the door). Checks can be made payable to South Georgia Conference. To register, click on the link below. Please note that spouses and lay employees who are not appointed by the bishop are not eligible to attend the workshop.
