The special EFM training for clergy scheduled for June 7-9 has been cancelled. They will be carrying on with the regularly scheduled training June 15-17
EFM has been a sponsored program in the Diocese for over 25 years, delivering for our laity a study of the Scripture, history and theology of the Church, in small, seminar-style groups. Members of EFM groups make a commitment to their learning a year at a time (EFM is a four-year program). Groups are managed by trained, local facilitators, who make a longer commitment. These mentors re-certify on an annual basis, usually at training events offered in our Diocese.
You may learn more about EFM at the Canadian website www.efmcanada.ca and about the originating program in the US at www.efmsewanee.edu. The Canadian program does differ in some ways from the US version, including annual “Canadian Content” packages.
Please find attached below two short descriptions of EFM and of the work of a mentor, prepared by our diocesan coordinator, the Rev. Paula Porter Leggett
