Education and Formation

We believe that the relationship with God is both sacramental and biblical. Therefore we encourage continuing spiritual growth for adults and faith formation of children and youth in the Diocese of Atlanta by seeking to educate, equip and inspire a lifelong experience and practice of faith.

Education & Formation for Children

Curricula used by parishes in the Diocese of Atlanta include Living God’s Dream, Godly Play, and Journey to Adulthood.

Education for Ministry

Education for Ministry (EfM) is an international program of lay theological education. Participants in EfM programs study the breadth of the Christian tradition from the earliest period to the present. Students learn the disciplines of biblical critical interpretation (exegesis), systematic theology, church history, ethics, liturgics and ascetical theology. Learn more.
