Read full description of the books Abiding Mission:Abiding Mission presents the discipline of abiding as the first priority of the Christian and the base methodology of mission. Based on an exegesis of John 15, Abiding Mission illustrates the definition of abiding by examining the abiding mission lives of seven key pioneers in mission to Muslims in North Africa, including Daniel Comboni (Catholic), Samuel Zwemer (Presbyterian), Oswald Chambers (YMCA/Pentecostal League), Lillian Trasher (Assemblies of God), Lilias Trotter (Algerian Missions Band), Douglas Thornton (Anglican-CMS), and Temple Gairdner (Anglican-CMS). The work continues by looking at the operationalization of abiding as developed from interviews from current missionaries to Muslims in North Africa. ""Dick Brogden's latest book is an academic perusal of various subjects relating to missionary work grounded in the spiritual discipline of abiding in Christ. It is a penetrating tome that both convicts and spurs one on to seek a deeper intimacy with Christ."" --Phil Parshall, SIM, Sebring, FL ""For those interested in discipling and church planting in the Muslim world, you will not find a better guide that Brogden's Abiding Mission.Based on the exegesis of John 15:1-17, the author shows through case studies of workers in the past as well as the present that the most effective approach comes from blending the strengths of the Evangelical and Pentecostal Movements."" --Don McCurry, President, Ministries to Muslims For the past twenty years, Dick Brogden has lived and worked among Muslims in Mauritania, Kenya, Sudan, and Egypt. He is the founder of two initiatives to provide educational training for business development: Aslan Associates (Sudan) and iLearn (Egypt).

Read information about the authorDick Brogden is an Assemblies of God missionary to the Middle East.
Dick and Jennifer Brogden’s passion in ministry is to bring the gospel to the Arab world by church planting in those nations. The Brogdens have lived and ministered among Muslims for the last 19 years in three African nations. Dick and Jennifer have two boys, Luke and Zack, both of whom were born and raised in Africa. They currently lead a church planting team that will equip team leaders to plant churches throughout the Arab-Muslim world.
Since university, Dick has dreamed of God using his life to bring one million Muslims to saving faith in Jesus Christ; he humbly acknowledges, however, “I may never lead many, but if I can influence some who will influence others and be a catalyst for ministry in the M*slim world, I would love to see that happen. I want to live a life to make much of God.”
Dick ministers alongside many multi-national missionary teams and strongly believes in the power of spiritual multiplication, as well as the importance of developing self-sustaining ministries. His next goal is to train 33 teams to plant churches in various cities in the Arab world. Dick hopes that God will enable his teams to accomplish this, and then he hopes that another 400 teams will be sent to preach the gospel to every unreached people group in the Arab world. “Then I can die happy,” he says.
Through God’s grace, Dick and Jennifer have been blessed to see their ministry in one African nation multiply seven times, after they faithfully raised and equipped leaders to run home churches. These churches currently feed several hundred believers and are now ministering to third generation Christians. Through the use of spiritual multiplication to create self-sustaining ministries, the believers in that country are now equipped and enabled to continue to reach their country with the gospel through their international church, international school, ladies’ community centre, indigenous development agency, as well as several English centres and cooperative training networks.
