EFM (Education for Ministry)efm
Class starting this fall

Education for Ministry (EfM) is a four-year certificate program from the University of The South aimed at helping participants discover and live our own personal ministry. Year One starts with a comprehensive examination of the Old Testament, the second year moves to the New Testament.  In year three the focus is upon history of Christianity from the history of Judaism (the faith of Jesus) up to the modern Christian church. Year four year focuses on current topics in theology, worship, and inter-faith dialog. The group also examines theological themes and readings from common materials and exercises. The class is held once each week for 2 hours from early September through May (with breaks at Christmas and Easter). This year, we will start EfM on Tuesday, September 1st at 7:00 PM in the St. John's conference room/library. The deadline for signing up for EfM is July 26th and the cost is $350 for the year, which includes all materials needed for the class.
