Education for Ministry (EfM) is 4 Year academic course.
- the first year investigates the Hebrew Bible; the second year follows the New Testament; the third year considers the Christian history and the fourth year looks at Christian ethics and philosophy
- The course is mentored locally in small groups. It is not a Bible study. Each person brings their own experience to the course.
- Each year costs $350 with an additional cost for books
- Each year is mentored over 36 weeks, typically a school year.
- The group of six to twelve mutally agrees as to the time and place for meetings.
- A person joins anywhere in the four year cycle (A B C D) but in the sequence 1 to 4.
- The sessions comprise a set reading with discussion on it, then a more in depth development of a theme arising from the previous discussion.
- There is both seriousness and laughter.
At this time, the EfM group meets on Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. in Room A in the lower hall of St. Peter, Quamichan. For more information, contact the Parish Administrator who will put you in touch with the Team Leader.
