Education For Ministry

Have you ever wondered about why we do things the way we do in the Episcopal Church? Or where that prayer came from?  Or how our current form of worship came to be?

If you would like to spend time exploring these questions, consider enrolling in Education for Ministry (EfM) this fall.  Classes begin in September, but enrollment is open during the month of May. 

For information about this enriching program, please talk to Kristi Champagne, kfchampagne@gmail.com or Doug Dickinson, morningsidedrive@live.com. 

You are invited to deepen your faith and explore Scripture through Education for Ministry (EfM). EfM offers lay people a good grounding in Scripture, history, and theology. More important: we learn how these are related to our own daily lives through discussion and reflection in our weekly seminar sessions beginning in September.

EfM is a four-year distance learning theological education program from the School of Theology of the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. Participants commit one year at a time to meet regularly in seminars of 6 to 12 students led by trained mentors. During the four years, participants study the Bible, church history and theology and engage in reflection.
