For ministers to have standing with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Kansas, whether ordained or licensed, they are required to have completed a "Boundaries Training" seminar at least once every three (3) years. Opportunities for such training are offered by the Clergy Care Ministry of the Christian Church (DOC) in Kansas on an annual basis. If a minister is unable to attend the scheduled event by the region, they can fulfill this requirement by either taking a similar course through the Missouri School of Religion or through a program offered by other denominational judicatories provided they check with Ken Marston, Associate Regional Minister, who is assigned to consult with the Clergy Care Ministry Team on such matters. While this training is geared towards ministers, elders and deacons and other congregational leaders are welcomed to attend these events also.
In 2014, the focus will be on Financial Ethics for pastors and congregations. The event will be led by Dr. Jim McCollough and will be held at the Disciples Center at Tawakoni on May 2 and 3. This is a one day event held on back to back days. The cost is $35 thanks to the generous support of the Kansas Bible Chair. Churches are encouraged to send their church Treasurers, Board Chairs, and Trustees along with their pastors. The cost includes lunch.
