Education for Ministry (EfM)
EfM is the theological education extension program of the School of Theology of the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. Completion of the program takes four years, during which participants study the Old and New Testaments, church history, and twentieth century theology. Participants commit one year at a time and meet weekly in seminars led by a trained mentor. EfM is for the laity of the church. Every baptized person is called to ministry. EfM provides the basis of a theological education in order to develop knowledge and confidence about the ministry we all share. Since its beginning in 1975, EfM's 24,000 plus graduates have become a source of informed, committed and prepared leadership for the church.
