The IMFE: Institute for Ministry of Faith Enrichment – A Graduate Course for Lay Ministries

Official designation as “Lay Ministers” is given only to those who have graduated from the one-year intense course for ministry, the IMFE.

It has these unique features:

  • The IMFE is done by lay leaders of all ministries, reflecting together on their leadership roles in particular ministries as well as the need for communion of all ministries.
  • The IMFE Candidates are senior lay leaders with considerable experience of their own ministries as well as an under-graduate certification in their particular ministries.
  • The IMFE Course content ensures a thorough exposure to the theology of ministry and the human sciences needed for leadership in ministry.
  • The IMFE Practicum component ensures that Candidates are helped in 360 degree appraisals, as well as the guidance of a mentor and a group of colleagues.
