WHY EMBED THE EHS COURSE IN YOUR CHURCH?

Have you committed to embedding the Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Course into your Church or do you need help convincing your leadership to integrate the course? Here are 8 great reasons that you should embed the EHS Course into your Church: 1) Offers long-term sustainability for EHS in a church so it is not dependent on the senior pastor. 2) Provides regular testimonies of life-change. 3) Enables leadership to maintain the quality/DNA to newcomers and members to the church. 4) Raises up new leaders and “water carriers” of EHS throughout the church. 5) Serves as a call to deep, beneath the surface, radical discipleship in the church. 6) Cements members in the core values of the church. 7) Moves people from being “consumers” to servants/leaders. 8) Provides a bridge for people into the larger EHS vision found in “Characteristics of Churches Transformed by EHS“.

He now teaches leadership at Harvard so his book is particularly focused on lessons to learn from their divergent styles as well as their failures. Here are a few points he made that are particularly revelant to those of us in leadership. Lesson 1: Time for study and reflection are critical for long-term leadership. Richard Nixon –His years in the wilderness (after he lost to John F. Kennedy in the 1961 election) became one of his most productive periods in his life as he had time for reflection, study, and to develop a long –range view of world affairs that became a foundation for his presidency. He seized those years for personal growth and a springboard to serious, tempered, seasoned leadership. There is a time. Read more.
