Although we are not able to offer in-person trainings at this time due to COVID-19, Safe Church training and Anti-Racism are still both available to all in the diocese, and are a requirement for those who hold leadership roles in a congregation.

Safe Church training

Online Safe Church training is available on-demand through our new learning portal, and is self-paced for you to complete as your are able. You can access the learning portal via this link, or by visiting the Formation page of the diocesan website.

Anti-Racism training

We are currently directing people to the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Justice and Healing in Atlanta for online training. This training will count for official training in the Diocese of Southern Ohio. Training is offered twice per month at no cost, but pre-registration is required.

Class size is limited to 25, so register early for the date you want. The registration form can be found by scrolling to the bottom of the page.

After completion, certificates should be emailed to Emma Helms-Steinmetz to be added to our diocesan database and saved for your own personal records.
