If you’re ready to transform your faith into a deeper relationship with Jesus, Emotionally Healthy Discipleship (EHD) may be just what you’re looking for. The course has two parts: Emotionally Healthy Spirituality, which helps us deeply change our relationship with God, and Emotionally Healthy Relationships, which helps us deeply change our relationships with others. Each course is 8 weeks, and can be taken in any order.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Emotionally Healthy Discipleship right for me?
We are all emotionally unhealthy in certain areas of our lives. EHD helps everyone work through those areas so that we can move on to becoming more mature disciples of Jesus. We can’t be spiritually mature and emotionally unhealthy at the same time.
What can I expect in a typical EHD session?
This is a video-based course with a facilitator who will instruct us after each video. All participants will be in a large room with round tables. Each table will have a Table Leader who will help the group work through the facilitator’s instructions.
Do I need to bring anything?
Bring a Bible and something to take notes on. Your registration covers all the course materials you will need and those will be provided on site.
Which course should I take?
We recommend that everyone go through BOTH courses. Neither is a prerequisite for the other, so jump in wherever you can!
Emotionally Healthy Relationships
The EHR course is not just focused on romantic relationships, but on all types. You will learn 8 practical skills to develop mature, loving relationships with others, such as:
· Stop Mind Reading and Clarify Expectations
· Listen Incarnationally
· Climb the Ladder of Integrity
· Fight Cleanly
And since loving others and loving God cannot be separated, you will also grow in your personal, first-hand relationship with Jesus by incorporating stillness, silence and Scripture as daily life rhythms.
Emotionally Healthy Spirituality
In the EHS Course you will explore 8 biblical themes that will move you to be deeply changed by Jesus and have powerful, long-term impact on the world around you.

You will also learn to develop a Sabbath rhythm – a counter-culture practice that goes against the grain of our 24/7, frenetic culture.
