Education for Ministry (EfM)

Register Now for September, 2017
Thursday evenings at 7:00 PM


Education for Ministry (EfM) is a transformational learning community that meets weekly at Saint James’ from September through May. EfM participants begin by learning to listen deeply for God in their own experience and the stories shared by others. Individually, we read and reflect on the Bible, Church history, and Christian theology in preparation for our weekly conversations. Together, the reflective process invites us to identify and explore questions, and consider ways to apply insights. Through EfM we learn to live in loving relationships – and we have a really good time along the way.

Interested? Contact the Church Office at office@sjcsp.org and a co-mentor will contact you. Visit efm.sewanee.edu for a closer look.
