Education for Ministry Class

Education for Ministry (EfM)
What is EfM all about?  In the words of one our graduates- “I was seeking spiritual growth and learning about Christianity when I joined EfM.  I found a caring community that expanded my knowledge and supported my faith.  I hope others take advantage of the opportunity to have that experience”.  Other graduates have found the EfM experience to be “transformative” and “spiritually awakening”.  Education for Ministry (EfM) is a multiyear program sponsored by the University of the South based upon small-group study and practice. 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 and worship. Saint Matthew’s Church is planning for a new EfM class to start in September of this year.  The class will meet from 6:30 to 9 pm on Monday evenings.  It is likely that these sessions will be conducted via zoom.   General information about EfM may be found at the following website https://theology.sewanee.edu/education-for-ministry.  For more information, please contact Hugh Tilson (tilsonha@icloud.com) or Claire Doerschuk (claire_doerschuk@med.unc.edu.
