Education for Ministry

The Education for Ministry (EfM) program is a great four-year study and group reflection process for the formation of Christian ministry through the development of knowledge, attitudes, skill and identity as Christians.

EfM is a distance learning program offered through the School of Theology at University of the South.

  1. The first year studies the Hebrew Scripture (Old Testament).
  2. The second year offers a study of the New Testament.
  3. Year three provides study of Christian (church) history.
  4. Theology, ethics, and interfaith encounter constitute study in the fourth year.

The seminar groups are small from 6-12 participants and meet weekly. Usually, the seminars are about 2 hours long and are facilitated by a mentor and co-mentor. Participants read their assignments for the week and share their thoughts and insights.

The cost for the program $325 per year and includes the Reading and Reflection Guide in both e-book and printed formats.  Participants are responsible for obtaining the textbooks for the year at their own cost.

The fee is paid at the time of enrollment using the program’s online registration and payment system.  (Link to follow soon.)  Scholarships are available this year as needed for two participants.

It is a wonderful program that will challenge and deepen your faith. For more information, contact Rhonda Rugg.

Sacred Journey

Sacred Journey is a group of individuals who meet weekly at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday evenings via Zoom to explore, discuss, and effect change regarding issues involving the environment, criminal justice, and social justice. 

Our mission is to be agents of the love of Jesus Christ, bringing positive change on issues impacting our brothers and sisters and our planet. We plan to accomplish our mission by discussion and advocacy — as a group and individually — for social and criminal justice as well as the preservation of the earth. We are committed to sharing what we learn with the greater community through conversation, articles, and other actions. We welcome anyone and everyone!
