     Education for Ministry…

    is a “distance learning” theological education program.  Participants commit one year at a time to meet regularly in seminars led by a trained mentor.  Completion of this program takes four years, during which participants  study the Bible, church history, theology and ethics.

    The EfM curricula is written and published by The University of the South, School of Theology in Sewanee, Tennessee.  EfM provides a comprehensive, experiential education in the foundations and message of our Christian faith.

    This program provides the basics of a theological education in order to develop knowledge and confidence about the ministry we all share.  Since its beginning in 1975, thousands throughout the United States and overseas have participated in EfM.

    Each seminar group of six to twelve students is led by a mentor.  The group usually meets once a week during a nine-month cycle to reflect theologically, discuss the materials they have read, and to worship together.  Students follow a lesson and a study guide which are to be read outside the seminar each week.  There are no tests or papers to write because EfM presupposes that adult education best takes place when the student responsible for his/her own learning.

    Please call our church office (355-3110) to contact Deacon Geri Nelson about the specific plans for the formation of groups in September, 2013.
