Prayer and Ministry

What does it mean to 'Abide in Christ'? By Didasko Academy

This short workshop course was created by Didasko Intercultural Ministry Training - they retain all rights to this material and the original course is available here.

About This Workshop

In-depth research has found that missionaries who “lavish extravagant daily time” on Jesus bear more fruit in terms of disciples made (John 15:5) than those who don’t. This workshop helps Christians learn from Scripture and one another what it means to “abide in Christ” by looking into practical ways of obeying what Jesus taught in John 15:1-17.

The workshop recommends not being legalistic about prayer times, but rather seeing prayer as enjoyable times with Jesus. The also gives some ideas on how to involve prayer partners back home in the ministry.

Estimated time commitment for completing this course


The course is self-paced, and you can go through the content at your own pace when you choose to do so. There is only one module. There you will find videos, discussion opportunities, and other activities.

There are short multiple choice quizzes after most videos. These are intended to help you process and understand the material, not to serve as “tests” or exams. There is no final exam.


Please note that most of the video transcripts have been machine-translated and will contain language errors. We are actively looking for volunteers to translations. If you are interested in volunteering, please click here


Please take a moment to introduce yourself to other learners using the course’s Discussion Forum.

Again, thank you so much for joining us in this course. We hope you will enjoy it, and hear God’s voice as you progress.
