EfM Information Session

May 10, 2023 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am


On Wednesday, May 10, we will have two information sessions on Zoom—at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.—to learn more about a new online Education for Ministry cohort for the Diocese of New Jersey. The cohort will be facilitated by the Rev. Margaret Otterburn.

Education for Ministry (EfM) is a unique four-year distance learning certificate program in theological education based upon small-group study and practice. Since its founding in 1975, this international program has assisted more than 120,000 participants in discovering and nurturing their call to Christian service. EfM helps the faithful encounter the breadth and depth of the Christian tradition and bring it into conversation with their experiences of the world as they study, worship, and engage in theological reflection together.

The program invites participants into small, mentored groups that provide the framework for understanding life and shaping actions as Christian faith is deepened. EfM seminar groups meet in local settings and online, and provide a four-year curriculum that develops a theologically informed, reflective, and articulate laity. EfM program and materials are provided by Sewanee University.
