Education for Ministry

Education for Ministry (EfM) is a unique four-year distance learning certificate program based on small-group study and practice in theological education. Two EfM groups meet at St. Thomas. The groups are accepting participants for the 2023/2024 year. Contact Aneya Elbert for more information and to connect with a group mentor.

Spring 2024 Agape Group:  Sacred Ground

Sacred Ground is a film and readings-based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith.  A group of 8 will work together to walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity.

 

This 11-part series focuses on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories. We will work together to discuss the layers that contributed to the challenges and divides of the present day while remaining grounded in our call to faith, hope, and love.

 

For more information about Sacred Ground, click here.

 

Sara Ptomey will facilitate Sacred Ground.  The meetings will be held in the library at St. Thomas every other week.  The first meeting on Saturday, January 6, at 11:00, will be to determine the day and time that is best for all participants since we all have different life commitments. This meeting will be short. All other meetings will last between 1.5 and 2 hours.

 

If you are interested in signing up for the Spring Agape Series or if you have any questions, contact Sara Ptomey.
