If you think that you may want to consider starting an EFM group in your parish, this event is for you. EFM is growing in our diocese. There are presently 4 groups:

EFM programs presently operate at
St. Paul's in Sparks & Christ and All Saints in Las Vegas & St. Paul's Elko

Expectations for perspective EFM mentors:
Be enablers rather than teachers.
Be able to articulate your own thoughts and feelings, and show understanding of the thoughts and feelings of others.
Be able to accept the diversity of group members.
Be familiar with the critical and historical approaches to the study of the Bible and church history.
Be maturing in your life of faith.
Respond effectively to conflict and group dynamics.
Manage the administrative responsibilities.
Be aware that attending Mentor Training does not guarantee certification to be a mentor.
Objectives of Basic Mentor Training:
Understand the nature and purpose of the EFM program, the four source model of
theological reflection, the methods used by the program to facilitate reflection, and the place and purpose of spiritual autobiographies.
Be aware of resources and where to go if problems occur within the seminar group, and how to use worship as a part of an EFM group.
Learn about current administrative procedures for the program, recruiting, and beginning a group, and conducting an EFM seminar.
