EMMU

Our Purpose

The purpose of the EMMU is to plan and propose to Conference and CE an overall policy of education for ministry, for both ordained and lay; apply the regulations of Conference and CE with regard to probationers and candidates; consider annually the record and situation of every ministerial candidate and probationer; and examine and review patterns of the Church’s ministry and to make recommendations thereon.

About us

The EMMU consists of a General Committee that makes decisions and oversees that training requirements are met.

The Committee consist of the Bishops from Highveld/Swaziland District, Limpopo District and Central District, the EMMU Director and Co-Ordinator for Lay Training, as well as District Supervisors of Studies from each District.

The Warden for Deacons and the Warden of Biblewomen and Evangelists, the Local Preachers Association Secretary and a representative from SMMS and TEEC make up the rest of the Committee.

Ordained and Lay Minstries

We are not an Educational Institution and do not offer any academic courses. We are a Unit of the Methodist Church of Southern Africa task with the oversight of the training of both Lay and Ordained Ministries. Our service providers are Theological Education by Extension College and the Seth Mokitimi Methodist Seminary.
