Sexual Ethics Training
Sexual Ethics Training for all Pastors-all those who are serving under episcopal appointment within the Texas Annual Conference must attend one of the upcoming Sexual Ethics Trainings in early 2020 to remain in good standing. This includes all clergy serving in extension ministries, retired clergy serving under appointment, all deacons, elders, licensed local pastors (part-time and full-time), interim ministers, diaconal ministers, CLMs and lay supply who are assigned to lead a church. Those on leave or unappointed also need to attend to stay in good standing with the con- ference. This training is required even if you have recently attended an abbreviated version at Residency Retreats or Licensing Schools since the last quadrennial training in 2015-2016.
