Home 9 Programs & Courses 9 Theological Seminary 9 Didaskalia Journal


Didaskalia is Providence’s peer-reviewed academic journal, published annually by ProvPress, a division of Providence Theological Seminary. The journal aspires to make high quality interdisciplinary scholarship of a theologically reflective nature available and accessible to the broader church community.

Upcoming issues will engage with the themes of:

  • The Bible
  • Ministry in the Prairies


Encompassing a vast geographical expanse shaped by distinct history and cultures, the big skies of the Canadian Prairies provide a unique context for Christian ministry. While there is much material that comes out of the United States and, to a lesser degree, major urban centers in Canada, there has been a relative paucity of theological reflection on the challenges and opportunities presented to Christian ministry in the Canadian Prairies. For this reason, Didaskalia, the peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary theological journal of Providence, will be publishing an upcoming issue on the theme of “Ministry in the Prairies.”

As they are putting together this issue, the editorial board of Didaskalia, would like to hear from as many ministry practitioners as possible. Those serving in any type of ministry context within the Canadian Prairies (eg. – pastoral ministry, chaplaincy, parachurch ministry, etc.) are invited to submit a 750-word reflection focusing on the challenges and opportunities faced in their unique ministry context.

Guidelines for potential contributors to Didaskalia can be found here. Submissions are due by March 31, 2024, and should be sent to didaskalia@prov.ca.
