by Sally Rooney, Coordinator, Education for Ministry, Episcopal Diocese of Northern California

Seminar groups work under the leadership of mentors who contract to serve as guides and administrators. An EfM Mentor Training is scheduled for August 3-5, 2016 at Mercy Retreat Center in Auburn.

At present, both Foundations of Seminar Life (formerly Basic) and Spirituality training are planned. The topic focus, Spirituality, best complements our Reading and Reflection Guide Vol. D. Please be reminded that Sewanee’s change in training requirements for experienced mentors may necessitate your taking Foundations of Seminar Life (“mentors must return to Foundations of Seminar Live after three consecutive non-foundations/In-service events--i.e., formations or alternate trainings”). This requirement went into effect September of 2006. All brand-new mentors must take two Foundations trainings before taking Formation training.

Basic In-Service training will equip people to understand the role and responsibility of an EfM Mentor. Those who successfully complete the weekend will be accredited as Mentors by the University of the South. The training is experiential. The aim is to equip you as a recruiter and mentor of an EfM group.

For additional information or questions, please contact Sally Rooney, Diocesan EfM Coordinator, at (530) 383-0985 or by email sarahr42@att.net.
