EfM Mentor Training 

Education for Ministry (EfM) will be offering a weekend mentor training beginning on Friday, May 24 at 2:00 PM until 2:00 PM on Sunday, May 26, 2019, at the St. Anthony's Retreat Center in Kalihi.

What is Education for Ministry? It is is a four-year program in religious studies and reflection from the School of Theology at the University of the South. Participants enroll one year at a time, meeting weekly in a small group (no less than 6 people, no more than 12), with a trained mentor.

The EfM mentor brings skills in working effectively with small groups. Responsibility for the life of the group life belongs to everyone, but the mentor is the convener as well as being a group member.

Every baptized person is called to ministry. The Education for Ministry (EfM) program provides people with the education to carry out that ministry.Through study, prayer, and reflection, EfM groups move toward a new understanding of the fullness of God's kingdom. 

If you have any questions about the EfM training, please contact Pam McCoy.  You may also visit the Diocesan website HERE for more information about EfM.
