Education for Ministry: New Group Forming!
Co-mentors Beth Cavey and Sandy Padgett are forming an Education for Ministry (EfM) Group which will begin meeting Tuesday mornings in September 2020 at St Michael’s. Through study, prayer, and reflection, EfM helps participants move toward a new understanding of the fullness of God’s kingdom as they better appreciate the connections between their faith and their lives. We welcome all who are interested in the journey of self-discovery, no matter the denomination or set of beliefs that encourage their path.
EfM is offered through the Beecken Center of the School of Theology at the University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee. Classes are small, ranging from 6–12 students who are led by a mentor. The curriculum follows a four-year cycle covering the Old Testament, the New Testament, the history of Christianity, and the practice of theology. Participants receive 18 Continuing Education Credits for each year of study.
Annual Cost is $375 per year and includes all texts (Scholarships are available). Registration is easy and the benefits are numerous. For more information, email Beth Cavey, Administrative Mentor.
