EDUCATION FOR MINISTRY
EFM is an international program which helps individuals discover how to respond to the call of Christian service. EFM helps students 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. Participants are given weekly assignments to study with the help of resource guides. In the seminars , members have an opportunity to share their insights and discoveries as well as to discuss questions which the study materials raise for them.
The EFM group which meets at St. John’s typically consists of 6 to 12 students with a trained mentor who meet weekly for two and a half to three hours over the course of a nine-month academic year. The program takes four years to complete and is broken up into these courses of study:
• Year One: The Old Testament
• Year Two: The New Testament
• Year Three: Church History
• Year Four: Theological Choices
