(Education for Ministry)

EfM, or Education for Ministry, is a nationwide program

that helps laypeople discover and exercise their varied gifts for ministry wherever they live and work. Participants engage in deep reading, theological reflection, and (especially in Oak Park!) lively discussion at weekly small group gatherings, both in person and online.

There are many past and present EfM participants in our midst. Several have enjoyed it so much they’ve gone through the four-year cycle twice!

EfM follows an academic calendar. Each new class begins in early fall and lasts through late spring.
