Emotionally Healthy Discipleship

COURSES THAT DEEPLY CHANGE OUR INNER LIFE WITH JESUS

What Is Emotionally Healthy Discipleship?

The Emotionally Healthy Discipleship program at Trailside is overseen by Pastor Marcus Jones and consists of three 8-week courses: Emotionally Healthy Spirituality (EHS), Emotionally Healthy Relationships (EHR), and Emotionally Healthy Woman (EHW). The EHS and EHR courses are both taught and led by Pastor Marcus Jones. The Emotionally Healthy Woman course, which launched September 29, 2021, is led by Lee Firtko! Elder Mike Schrock, likewise, teaches the EHS course. At Trailside, it is our mission and vision to love Jesus, serve others, and live unified, and we are to be a refuge for the hurting and a refinery for the saints. These courses align with the mission and vision of Trailside Church, and aim believers toward a closer walk with Christ through practical skills, deep discussions, and prayer - to say the least.

Emotionally Healthy Classes

EMOTIONALLY HEALTHY SPIRITUALITY

THE CHURCH NEEDS FOLLOWERS OF JESUS WHO ARE LIVING OUT A DEEP INNER LIFE WITH CHRIST AND LIVE IN COMMUNITIES AS A DISTINCT COUNTER-CULTURE THAT THUS SERVE AS SALT AND LIGHT IN THE WORLD FOR HIM.

Since we cannot give what we do not possess, the focus of this course will be primarily on your inner life in Jesus. We are structuring the course for those with serious desire to grow and mature in their relationships with Jesus. Emotionally Healthy Spirituality focuses on a person’s relationship with God, and helps people begin the journey of applying Biblical truths to their lives in order to grow their relationship with Jesus. It starts with “The Problem of Emotionally Unhealthy Spirituality,” and continues deeper in the lives of participants to help them recognize where God shows up, especially when life is hard, and teaches practical skills to move forward in deeper relationship with Him. Silence and Stillness before God are emphasized through a 40 Day devotional that follows the course material as participants reflect on their own lives, hardships, and learn to give them to God.

GO BENEATH THE SURFACE AND TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE

Our commitment at Trailside is to lead people into a transformed, mature relationship with Jesus so that we can find our place in the body of Christ and impact our community and thus the world. The Emotionally Healthy Spirituality course is a part of the foundational layer for how we accomplish this.

This course teaches applicable skills to help us manage our expectations, check our assumptions, and communicate more effectively with those around us. Similar to EHS, the EHR course emphasizes silence and stillness throughout a 40 day devotional that also follows the course material.
