Events and Announcements
Education for Ministry
Education for Ministry (EfM) is a lay theological program from Sewanee, the University of the South. The small group meets weekly from fall through spring with a Sewanee-trained mentor. Study, worship, discussion, and theological reflection serve as the basis for the weekly classes.
EfM is not a Bible study group; it is not a seminary or college class- no exams, no papers, no grades. The topics include: Year One – The Old Testament, Year Two – The New Testament, Year Three – Church History, Year Four – Other Religions and Philosophy. Students commit one year at a time. EfM is a weekly seminar to reflect theologically on Christian life, to gain understanding and appreciation of God in everyday life.
To learn more about EfM, please contact Fr. Connelly at 259.1570 or Oliver Roberts at 310.2119.
