  • St. Luke's hosts first EfM training

This first Education for Ministry (EfM) Mentor Training in the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth is scheduled for September 11 – 13 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Stephenville.

Sixteen trainees have registered from the dioceses of West Texas, Dallas, Northwest Texas, and Fort Worth. Some are experienced mentors returning to established seminar groups, and others hope to start new EfM seminar groups in their congregations.

The trainers are sent from around the country by the Beecken Center of the School of Theology at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee.

EfM is a distance-learning program for adult Christian formation through theological education and reflection. More information about the program is on the diocesan EfM page and the EfM website at Sewanee. If you are interested in starting an EfM group in your congregation, please contact the Rev. Dana Wilson, diocesan coordinator for EfM, at dana9651@sbcglobal.net.
