Education for Ministry

EfM is a distance learning program that aims to increase understanding, deepen faith and strengthen ministries. Although it is a four-year program, students commit to one year at a time. Holy Comforter will have two EfM groups in the 2019–20 program year which will start in mid-September and we are now recruiting!
