Clergy members and other ministry leaders are often expected to not only make all of the right decisions, but also have all of the answers. They are faced with ethical determinations in their personal lives every day, as we all are humans. The decisions made in those ordinary moments can have long-term positive or negative consequences.
As a person charged with leading a church, a clergy member makes decisions at a level that can be far-reaching. More so than people in other professions. Ethical clergy can propel a congregation forward to do its best work. Unethical behavior, on the other hand, can have a ripple effect and seriously erode the fabric of an entire congregation.
The code of behavior for ministry leaders should be grounded in Biblical truth. As clergy members are tested every day with situations that may challenge their own ethics and values, they must draw from this code of behavior. They must be ready to face life’s everyday predicaments, grounded in the mission given to them by their congregation and the community they serve.
What are the top challenges that today’s clergy and church leadership face, and how they can navigate these ethical conundrums. Some of these issues include technology, sexualized behavior and misconduct, addiction, behavior with children and youth, narcissism, plagiarism, and more. Join Rev. Dr. Bryan Vaughan as he teaches this most important class.
