EfM Information Forum

June 8 @ 6:45 pm - 8:00 pm

Do you want to go deeper into your faith in an intense, ongoing way? Do you want to form lasting connections with others who also seek that connection? Consider registering for Education for Ministry (EfM). There will be an informational forum plus Q&A about the EfM program on Wednesday, June 8, 6:45-8pm, via Zoom. EfM is a four-year program for lay people to study scripture, church history, and modern theology. Classes connect the material with church tradition, personal experiences, individual beliefs, and current events. EfM is a program of The School of Theology at Sewanee, and is The Episcopal Church’s most in-depth adult Christian education course.

Admission requires a solid commitment to attend the weekly seminars and spend between two and four hours in study and preparation weekly during the academic year (September–June). It is a four-year program, but students commit to one year at a time. Each class is limited to 12 people. EfM is also available online for students who are not able to attend the weekly seminars.

Three different classes meet weekly September to June at Saint Mark’s Cathedral:

Sundays, 6:30–8:30pm
Mondays, 10:00am–12:30pm
Mondays, 6:30–8:30pm

Tuition is $325, plus the cost of textbooks.

If you are interested in joining one of next year’s classes, please attend the forum on June 8, or contact one of the class mentors: Sunday evening: Penelope Jackson (; Monday morning: Maria Coldwell (; Monday evening: Tom Hayton (
