Education for Ministry

Every baptized person is called to ministry.  Education for Ministry (EFM) provides people with the education to carry out that ministry.  Over the course of four years, participants study the entire sweep of Christian tradition from the earliest period to the present.  The first year covers the Old Testament, the second year covers the New Testament, the third year focuses on church history and the fourth year explores contemporary theological issues.

Mother Phoebe Roaf and Father Bill Wells currently lead a combined EFM group at St. Philip's with members in Year One, Year Three and Year Four.  For more information about EFM, call the church office at 321-1266.
