Education for Ministry (EFM) is a parish based program of Christian theological education offered by the School of Theology of the University of the South. Students sign up one year at a time for this four-year adult class. About half the class time is devoted to an academic study of the Old and New Testaments, church history, and theology. (There are no tests, no papers due.) The other half of our time, we delve into discussions covering many topics generated by the class. We meet once a week at Christ Church of the Ascension under the guidance of trained mentors.
Participants in EFM study the entire sweep of the Christian tradition, from the earliest period to the present. Students learn the disciplines of biblical exegesis and interpretation, systematic theology, church history, ethics, liturgics and ascetical theology, which form the core of a seminary education. The traditional content is not studied in a vacuum. EFM creates small "communities of learning" where life events may be examined in the light of the materials being studied. While the academic material is substantial, there is the added focus on life implications and understanding them in a theological context. EFM provides adult Christians with a basic skill -- theological reflection, which sharpens the skills of personal and cultural assessment.
This study is on a back bone of political history, philosophical and theological thought, and the migration of peoples since these factors are interwoven and are virtually inseparable. The first two years we cover the Old Testament and New Testament. The third year we study church history, 100CE to the present. In our fourth year the material covers theological perspectives and their impact on life in the church today.
We are currently registering the new first year class which will begin in September. Please contact us using the form below for more information.
