Our Faith and Christian Education

"The Episcopal Church strives to live by the message of Christ, in which there are no outcasts and all are welcome. Walking a middle way between Roman Catholicism and Protestant traditions, we are a sacramental and worship-oriented church that promotes thoughtful debate about what God is calling us to do and be, as followers of Christ." - The Episcopal Church Visitors' Center

Adult Education

Education for Ministry (EfM)


Do you have questions about your faith? Most people do, and most find it challenging to get answers. Education for Ministry was developed by the School of Theology in Sewanee, Tennessee, to provide a mechanism for people to work through those questions. This four-year course of study provides the framework for the group to connect faith to their daily lives through reading and discussion. 


Meeting once a week in small groups or in virtual groups, led by mentors trained to facilitate the experience, you will begin to think theologically, reflect faithfully, and speak civilly when confronted by beliefs and principles in opposition to your own. And that’s something we can all appreciate in today’s world. 


Learn how to articulate your faith. Shape your faith into action.Get involved in ministries in your community. Make a difference. 


Since its inception in 1975, more than 100,000 people have participated in this vital program. EfM groups meet regionally in nearly every diocese of The Episcopal Church, in six provinces of the Anglican Communion, and some in virtual classrooms with participants from across the globe.  We would love to have you join us!


Nativity Cathedral has an EFM group that meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:30 PM from September through May. Additional groups will form if there is interest. More information about EfM here. Email Cathy Bailey, Diocesan EFM coordinator, if you are interested in being part of a group or have any questions.
