Heather Birge

Quadrennial Boundaries training will be held virtually on June 11. This training is required for Missouri Conference clergy. Lay members are encouraged to attend. Clergy under active appointment will be registered automatically for Boundaries training as part of their Annual Conference 2021 registration (visit: to register).

Retired Clergy not currently serving in an appointment and laity who choose to attend the training can register here.

In 1996, the General Conference of the United Methodist Church made a commitment to focus on sexual misconduct and to address this brokenness and pain. The Missouri Annual Conference has also experienced this type of abuse and the Bishop, along with the Cabinet and the Board of Ordained Ministry, remain committed to naming this pain and working to prevent it within our churches.  This training offers clergy the opportunity to stand in opposition to the sin of sexual misconduct within the Church through education and discernment with colleagues.
