Education for Ministry Informational Meeting


August 12
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Every baptized person is called to ministry as we live at the crossroads of faith and life. In the Education for Ministry (EfM) program, we meet weekly during the academic year as a small faith community. We read, share our faith journeys, and talk together protected by confidentiality. EfM provides lay people with an education about being Christians and for carrying out our individual ministries as theologically articulate laity. Ask anyone who has participated how much it has meant!

EfM is a worldwide four-year program from the School of Theology of The University of the South. Students enroll one year at a time and can obtain 18 Continuing Education Units per year by participating and attending 90% of group meetings. Mentors guide the seminars and train annually to lead groups.

We plan to have EfM meetings by Zoom on Wednesdays from about 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm this fall. We chat starting at 6:30 pm before the seminar starts at 7:00 pm. Depending on when the online payment system is up and running, we hope to start in late September, but that could change. To join, you would pay the registration fee of $375. The fee pays for a study guide and all books (except a Bible). Scholarships are available.

Join us on August 12 at 7:00 pm. Email office@stjohnsnorwood.org to RSVP and get Zoom details.
