ECMN Retreat Center, Faribault, MN
Led by by The Rev. Elsa Swift Bakkum
Think you know what EfM is? Maybe it’s time for a refresher: the time-tested curriculum has recently undergone a significant revision, with fresh books and resources, and a renewed approach to the process. Whether you’re new to EfM or have lots of experience, this mentor training will bring you up to speed, equip you for mentoring a new or existing group, and connect you with others in Minnesota who are on the EfM journey too.
$200 per participant covers food, with overnight accommodations included.
Some housing at the retreat center is still available, though participants from the Twin Cities and areas near Faribault may want to commute.
Scholarships are available.
