#4: Loving Protection & Loving Obedience: Healthy Boundaries In Your Ministry ft. Thaleia Sawatzky & Kendra Gerbrandt

BCMB Pastor to Pastor Podcast

Healthy relationship boundaries are paramount to living out the calling God has on our lives. Surely, everybody knows that adultery and abuse are wrong. So, why do we need to talk about boundaries? And, why are we doing so poorly in our culture — and even in our churches — in maintaining them? On today’s episode, Rob Thiessen is joined by Northview Community Church’s Pastor of Care, Thaleia Sawatzky, and Ministry Intern, Kendra Gerbrandt, to discuss healthy boundaries as both an act of loving protection for your church community and loving obedience to God. Rob, Thaleia, and Kendra dive right into the importance of knowing yourself, the inclination of your heart, and your posture towards the Lord. You’ll learn: How to keep your eyes wide open and set boundaries specific to your situation How to establish habits and clear boundaries that are preventative, but also adaptive. And, the surprising importance of physical self-care and hobbies in maintaining healthy boundaries. As a leader, crossing boundaries can lead to pain, betrayal, and distrust. It’s a heartbreaking situation for your family and your church. Invest in your holistic self-care (physical, social, mental/emotional, and spiritual) to thrive in your ministry.
