Education for Ministry
Education for Ministry is a program that helps people encounter the breadth and depth of the Christian tradition. Although the full program spans four years, only a one-year commitment is needed. For more information, email Lisa Hackney-James.
Through study, prayer, and reflection, EfM groups move toward a new understanding of the fullness of God's kingdom. Through discussion and guided reflection, the seminars furnish an opportunity to deepen understanding of the reading materials.
More important is the development of skills in theological reflection. The goal is to learn to think theologically. By examining their own beliefs and their relationship to our culture and the tradition of our Christian faith, participants can learn what it means to be effective ministers in the world.
