True North Boundary Training

True North is a Presbytery of Chicago program dedicated to helping congregations and pastors set their sights on healthy pastor-parishioner relationships, establish safe boundaries and find their way to trust, truth, honesty and love as Christ’s church.

The Presbytery of Chicago requires all ministers, ministerial candidates and inquirers, Honorably Retired clergy, Certified Christian Educators, members of the Presbytery Coordinating Commission, moderators of any of the presbytery’s entities, and all Presbytery of Chicago employees and volunteers to attend a seminar on healthy boundaries every three years.
