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.
