Education for Ministry

Tuesdays, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m, Michaux House, Room 302

Are you seeking to deepen and grow your faith? Education for Ministry (EfM) is designed to help us understand our lives and shape our actions.  Through EfM, we learn how we might respond to our baptismal call to represent Christ and his Church; “to bear witness to him … to carry on Christ’s work of reconciliation in the world; and to take [our] place in the life, worship, and governance of the Church.” (Book of Common Prayer). EfM is a program designed and directed by the University of the South (Sewanee) and is more than 40 years old. Its curriculum of study, worship, theological reflection and small group interaction is one of the most comprehensive theological education experiences available, outside of seminary. One EfM graduate said, “EfM has helped me be more aware of the God-full moments in my daily walk at work, at home, at play and to discover how I can minister right where I am, right now, and to explore possible new ministry.” There is a tuition fee; scholarships are available.
