Education For Ministry

EFM.jpgEFM is a four-year course of study sponsored by the University of The South. Through study, prayer and reflection the groups move toward a deeper understanding.

 

Through discussion and guided reflection provided by a mentor, individuals are able to more deeply understand the curriculum and reflect on its meaning. The course includes one year of the Hebrew Bible know to us as the Old Testament, one year of the New Testament, one year of church history and one year of contemporary theology.

 

Heavenly Rest currently has four participants in first year, two in second year and two in fourth year. We will be announcing signups later in the spring, so if you think this is a study you would be interested in, please contact Rev. Amanda Watson, deacon, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (325) 677-2091.
