Education for Ministry (EfM) is a unique four-year distance learning certificate program in theological education based upon small-group study and practice. EfM is designed to prepare lay persons to live out by word and deed the promises made at baptism: to love God, to serve Christ, and to proclaim the Gospel. It is administered by The School of Theology Programs Center of the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee.
”EfM is a wonderful way to develop a deeper experience of a community of exploration, learning, and formation. As a nine-year EfM mentor, I can attest to the powerful impact this has had on my own ongoing formation and commend it to everyone in our diocese.” -Bishop Lucinda Ashby
