Emotionally Healthy Discipleship

Moving from Shallow Christianity to Deep Transformation

What is Emotionally Healthy Discipleship (EHD) Course?

The EHD Course is a strategy for discipleship that has proven to change lives. It consists of two parts, 8-weeks each, that provide an introductory experience of serious discipleship with Jesus.

Everything we do at Compassion is influenced by Emotionally Healthy Discipleship, from our worship to our preaching, serving, and groups. This course sets the tone for our discipleship culture within Compassion, so we expect everyone to take it as part of their spiritual formation.
