Education for Ministry
Education for Ministry (EfM) is a unique, four-year distance learning certificate program in theological education based upon small-group study and practice. Since its founding in 1975, this international program has assisted more than 100,000 participants in discovering and nurturing their call to Christian service. EfM helps the faithful encounter the breadth and depth of the Christian tradition and bring it into conversation with their experiences of the world as they study, worship, and engage in theological reflection together. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the EfM Graduate Group will be meeting via zoom.

Adult Confirmation Classes
St. James offers Episcopal 101 annually, usually in the spring. Episcopal 101 is an eight-week Sunday School offering that reviews the Old and New Testaments, church history, the creeds, sacraments, and the Book of Common Prayer. Parishioners interested in either exploring confirmation, or refreshing their knowledge of the church and what it means to be an Episcopalian, are encouraged to attend.
