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.
