Education for Ministry (EfM) provides a safe place for lay
people to refine their faith, articulate their faith and live
their faith through a structured group learning experience.
EfM is an extension course from the School of Theology of the
University of the South at Sewanee and is sponsored by the Diocese
of Southern Ohio. EfM seminars consist of 6 to 12 adults led by a
trained mentor who meet weekly to reflect theologically and
discuss the Bible, church history and theology.
What EfM does better than any other theological education
program is to equip people to integrate their faith with their
real life experiences in ways that make sense and bring meaning to
their lives. EfM graduates attest to being able to live more full
and abundant lives. Many discover (or rediscover) their ministries
in their daily life and work. Some find themselves called to use
their talents in new ways. In all cases, those who complete the
program have new confidence in their ability to live their lives
as theologically articulate Christians.
