Since April 2021, all Members in Discernment (MID) and authorized ministers in the New York Conference can satisfy their Boundary Awareness Training (BAT) requirement from the comfort of your own living room. BAT sessions are offered throughout the year, via Zoom. Every attempt has been made to offer online BAT sessions at varying times and days, in an effort to accommodate as many as possible. Some associations may still offer a few in-person BAT sessions. Please contact your association Registrar for information on in- person training. 

The training cost is $75.00 and if necessary, financial assistance is available through your association. Payment will be due at the time of registration. Training sessions will be capped at 15 people, so register early to secure your spot. If any MID or authorized minister has questions regarding their boundary awareness requirements, please contact your association Committee on Ministry. If you have questions regarding scheduling for an online BAT session please contact Lisa Delgado at .


The New York Conference has a new curriculum designed to meet the specific needs of retired ministers who are still engaged in occasional ministry tasks like pulpit supply, weddings, and funerals. This training will also be open to active ministers who are contemplating retirement within 18-24 months. The training content will assist “soon-to-retire” ministers with skills for a successful personal and professional departure from ministry as well as provide tools for maintaining healthy boundaries with a former congregation.

For currently retired ministers, this training will fulfill your association’s boundary awareness requirement. For those “soon-to-retire” ministers, continuing education units will be provided, but it will not substitute for your association’s BAT requirement.

The cost is $25.   Should you have questions about BAT requirements or need of a scholarship, please contact your association Committee on Ministry.
