Professional Development Resource Mission Group

NH School of Ministry becomes Professional Development Resource Mission Group

The New Hampshire School of Ministry has changed it’s name and it’s mission! We are now the Professional Development Resource Mission Group (PDRMG). Our focus is to provide continuing education and boundary awareness opportunities for authorized ministers and lay people. In addition, the PDRMG offers to be a resource to committees on ministry in their work with members in discernment pursuing an alternative track to authorized ministry.

Basic Boundary Awareness Training - October 25, 2018 - 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM

New Hampshire Conference, UCC
140 Sheep Davis Road
Pembroke, NH 03275

Basic Boundary Awareness training is based upon A Sacred Trust, a curriculum developed specifically for clergy working in congregations.  It considers issues such as power, dual relationships, transference, and personal needs. 

The workshop will be led by Dr. Charles Lindner,  a recently retired pastoral counselor/psychotherapist who had a practice for many years in Lebanon, NH.  He has facilitated clergy groups for dozens of clergy in NH and VT.  He has taught the basic boundary training for the NHCUCC for more than fifteen years and the clergy appreciate Charlie's experience with congregations and his familiarity with the material.

The workshop will fulfill the boundary requirement for authorized minister in the NHCUCC.
