Education For Ministry (EFM)

Education for Ministry (EfM) is a unique four-year distance learning certificate program in theological education based upon small-group study and practice. Since its founding in 1975, this international program has assisted more than 80,000 participants in discovering and nurturing their call to Christian service. EfM helps the faithful encounter the breadth and depth of the Christian tradition and bring it into conversation with their experiences of the world as they study, worship, and engage in theological reflection together.

Students sign up one year at a time for this four-year program.

Frace hosts its own EFM class and students meet once a week in seminars under the guidance of trained mentors.

The program grants a certificate at the completion of the four years and 18 Continuing Education Units for each year's work.
