Education for Ministry News


Every baptized person is called to ministry. The Education for Ministry program provides people with the education to carry out that ministry. Many people think that one must be ordained in order to be “a minister.” The fact is that all baptized Christians are called to be active participants in the church’s total ministry. The EfM program is preparation for the ministry to which we all are called.

The seminar group is the nucleus of the EfM program. A “face-to-face” group consists of six to twelve participants and a trained mentor who meet weekly over the course of 36 weeks per year for four years. If you are interested in joining a “face-to-face” group, please contact me and I will direct you to the closest mentor.

EfM Online

I will be offering an online EfM group on Sundays form 7:00pm to 9:00pm starting in September, this will be ideal for anyone who is unable to attend a face-to-face group; or is planning on being away for any length of time during the year.  This group will be composed of from 6 to 8 members from across Canada. Deadline for registration will be June 15, space is quite limited.

Tuition is $350.00 per year for either course.
