Abide considers ten topics that are relevant to Christian spiritual formation.

The topics are explored through readings, teachings, conversations with authors, group discussions and communal prayer. The curriculum offers an orientation for personal spiritual growth that is based on the fruit of the Holy Spirit that will be evidenced in the lives of those who abide in Christ.

Abide is for anyone who desires to grow as a Christian and gain a mature understanding of the internal working of the Holy Spirit who causes our growth in Christ. If you’re a learner or leader who wants to grow deeper in biblical understanding, practical insight, and daily wisdom related to the spiritual formation journey, we invite you to join us!
