The Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, in an effort to further the peace, unity, and purity of the church through the establishment of preventive measures to protect individuals against sexual misconduct within the church, has adopted a Sexual Misconduct Policy.

All clergypersons (Ministers in Full Connection, Ministers on Trial, or candidates for Admission on Trial or received from another denomination) must attend the Sexual Harassment and Misconduct training provided by their Episcopal District.  The failure to attend such seminars will result in the clergy member being ineligible to be given a pastoral assignment and/or placed on unpaid administration leave.

Please register below by selecting your preferred method (live or on-demand) and date of training.
