Sexual Ethics Workshop

Sexual Ethics Workshops for Clergy

Please note: Sexual Ethics Workshop Deadline Extension

As we wish Rev. Deborah Wight-Knight well on her Medical Leave, we realize that the Sexual Ethics Workshops set for February and April 2022 will not be held. To accommodate this change, the Cabinet and the Bishop 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 2021-2022 conference year and did not attend the workshop last September, you will now have an additional year to complete this requirement. In the meantime, we will make plans for future Sexual Ethics training. Resolution #2044 in The United Methodist Book of Resolutions calls for annual conference boards of ordained ministry to provide the much needed training in this area for those employed in ministerial leadership. Our Conference Board of Ordained Ministry will be taking the lead in designing how we deliver Sexual Ethics Training going forward. We will keep you informed of the requirements as they become clear.
