Education for Ministry

EFM was first published in 1975 by the Reverend Charles Winters in Sewanee, USA – since then it has gone global. It has been a popular education and formation programme  in Aotearoa since the 1980s and in 2014 NZ content was released.  EfM is an adult learning course that links Christian faith with daily life and seeks to deepen Christian Discipleship.

The Diocese of Waikato and Taranaki supports this programme and recommends that graduates of LiFT consider enrolling to support their ongoing formation. To find out more about EfM visit their website and see the flyers below:

To support the life of EfM groups and provide for the possibility of new groups forming, we need mentors who are trained in the necessary skills to facilitate co-learning EFM groups.
A mentor is neither an expert, nor a tutor. A mentor is a co-learner who has the added group skills to ensure that a safe, honest, non-judgmental learning environment is fostered within the group.
If you are or have been an EFM Mentor OR think that you might have what it takes to be a mentor, and/or are interested in in stepping into the adventure that is EfM please register for this Mentor Training experience.
