Education for Ministry

[Posted by Bill Lewellis]

One of the many programs offered throughout the Diocese of Bethlehem is Education for Ministry (EfM). EfM is a four year theology course that includes study of the Old Testament, New Testament, Church History and Theological Choices. Every baptized person is called to ministry. This program, through study, discussion, guided reflection, prayer, worship and fellowship, helps Christians to carry out that ministry. Participants register for one year at a time, meet weekly in groups of 6-12, and are led by a trained mentor.

There are several EfM groups in the Diocese. For a meeting time and place that works for you, see below. Most groups are now accepting new members for fall classes that begin in September.
