EfM Groups

Education for Ministry Groups


EFM groups are located in a number of cities and regions around Australia.  They are usually multi-level (ie with participants studying years 1-4) and range in number from 5 to 10 participants and being guided by a mentor and co-mentor. 

EFM groups may commence at different times of the year so if you are interested in joining a group please contact the EFM Office for contact information for any group you may be interested in joining.  The program runs for a year at a time – ie: at least 32 or 36 weeks.  Groups meet on a weekly or fortnightly basis and determine when and where to meet that will provide a good learning environment.
