Education for Ministry (Efm)
Is God’s call touching your heart? Do you feel drawn to understand how the Scriptures apply to your life to help you discern your most challenging decisions? Efm offers a seminary program structured to make the teachings of the Bible relevant to today’s life. The four-year program examines Old Testament, New Testament & church history. $350/year – scholarships available. Fee includes all reading materials and mentor fees.
Education for Ministry, affectionately known as EfM, is a program of theological education-at-a-distance from the School of Theology at the University of the South.
Students sign up one year at a time for this four-year program which covers the basics of a theological education in the Old and New Testaments, church history, liturgy, and theology. A seminar group is the nucleus of the program. Each group meets weekly and consists of a minimum of six and a maximum of eleven participants.
