EfM: Education for Ministry @ HTSSM!! Education for Ministry is a program of theological education for lay people. There are four years of study, but participants commit for one year at a time, meeting in small groups with a trained mentor. The program combines academic study with integrative components to help participants take what they learn into their own lives and hearts, supporting them in living out a vibrant baptismal ministry in the church and in the world. Rev. Rob is looking for interested participants to begin a new EfM group here at HTSSM in September. Please more information, please contact Rev. Rob; visit our Parish webpage under Ministries; or visit the website: http://www.efmcanada.ca.
