Abide in Christ: The Sickness, Health and Growth of Our Lives in Christ

Home  Speakers’ Bureau Women in Ministry


Language of Instruction: English or Mandarin


  • Seminar/Workshop: 3-4 hours, introduction for general audience
  • Church Retreat: 6-8 hours, more in-depth study for Christian men and women
  • Class: 40 hours for christian men and women (intensive class for 4 weekends)


This is an introduction written for a One Day Retreat

Three sessions: about 60-90 min. each session.

In John 10:10 Jesus told us that He had come so that we may have life, and have it more abundantly.  In John 15:5 Jesus also said that those who remain in Him will bear much fruits.  In both passages, Jesus painted a picture of a vibrant and fruitful vineyard as our lives in Him.  In this retreat, you are invited to come and experience that abundant life through hand on exercises, honest reflections of your own struggles, and ultimately rest in His Word. 

We will have 3 different sessions, each about 60-90 min. in length.  We will first deal with some factors in our own lives that might block or stunt our spiritual growth, and then we will dive head on into dealing them.  We will then learn and practice the true “Shalom” in Christ through receiving and resting in His Word. 

This retreat is not a “magic bullet” that will end the spiritual dryness in your lives, but a baby step in a lifelong journey of following Christ.  The whole retreat is based on the biblical model of Jesus’ very own earthly journey which lay bare before us to learn, to experience and to follow. 

I welcome you to join this journey with Jesus!
