Ignite Your Faith

TheWay helps you connect with Jesus, become more like him, understand his story, and engage in his mission.

How it works

1. Practice

Engage with the lesson during your daily time with Jesus.

2. Connect

Share with your group what you've learned each week and support one another through friendship and prayer.

3. Grow

As you progress in the journey, you’ll get closer to Jesus and experience transformation.

4. Multiply

Inspire others in the practices you’ve been learning.


Abide gave me the tools I had been looking for to grow deeper in my relationship with God and learn how to listen for that small, still voice. TheWay has impacted my life in a beautiful way and I hope to share that with others.

TheWay has been a turning point in my spiritual journey. TheWay devotionals provide a deeper level of understanding that is relevant to me. God speaks directly to me with love rather than judgement.

Frank P.

I’ve been a Christian for 40 years and I have never experienced hearing God’s voice until I started in Abide.


I facilitate a woman’s Abide group at my church and I can actually feel the difference the connection between the women has made in the culture of the church.

Brun S.

The Way series is foundational teaching to abide in Christ. In my experience, the daily devotionals and mentorship has been one of the best spiritually growing exercises.

Rick F.

One of the best decisions made for growing in my faith and creating a stronger foundation of belief was starting and continuing with TheWay.

Adam N.

As a Women’s ministry leader, I found myself searching for something to re-energize my Christian walk. I needed a spiritual Emergency Room. I stumbled on Church Renewal on the internet and am so thankful God led me to the Abide mentoring group and a Set Free retreat. I encourage anyone seeking resources, encouragement, prayer, or spiritual renewal to learn more about Church Renewal!

Abide in Christ Study

A pathway of purpose for men and women interested in growing in their walk with Jesus Christ. New groups will be starting fall 2024. By filling out the form below you will receive up to date information on when the groups will be meeting.

EXPLORE TheWay Abide
Have you ever lost your way? Do you find what you are anchored to is not quite as steady as you hoped it would be? Are you looking for the abundant, overflowing life that Jesus spoke of and can't find it? Abide in Christ is a pathway of purpose for those who are either exploring it for the first time, or for experienced travellers.

These discipleship groups meet via Zoom to unpack the learnings from the materials in Abide. We have awesome group facilitators who guide the discussions each week. No charge for the material or the weekly meetings (not much is free these days! It helps that our amazing facilitators volunteer their time). During the week, each person does their own daily devotional and prayer time using the materials provided (Yup! It is a bit of work, but worth it!)

If you are interested in this weekly commitment of meeting together with like-minded people, and learning more about the abundant life Jesus talks about, please register.
