The EHS Course – One Answer to the Crisis of Discipleship

Posted on January 21st, 2016

A few weeks ago, I posted a blog on the crisis of discipleship in our churches…


…based on the recent Barna Report on The State of Discipleship. It discovered, for example, that only 1% of church leaders believe “today’s churches are doing very well at discipling new and young believers.” Moreover, participation in discipleship activities in our churches is as low as 20%!

We currently emphasize numbers, and keeping people connected/active. The problem is that, not only is this not changing their lives, but is resulting in minimal missional impact.

EHS - Traditional

A transformation discipleship model, however, is quite different. It gets beneath the surface in people’s lives, but results in a greater, long-term impact in the world. Their lives become so filled with Jesus that it cannot help but overflow to others.

EHS - Transformative

The EHS Course is the fruit of 20 years of wrestling with the problem of superficial discipleship.  We have seen its power in transforming lives – time and time again – not just at New Life, but around the world.
