Education for Ministry (EfM)

Education for Ministry, (EfM) is a unique four year distance learning certificate program in theological education based upon small group study and practice. Since its founding in 1975, this international program has assisted more than 120,000 participants in discovering and nurturing their call to Christian service. EfM helps the faithful 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.

Education for Ministry is administered through the School of Theology at The University of the South at Sewanee, Tennessee.
