What is the Church? Is it a building?
This great video is an example of how DNA’s Network Development Coordinator for the Middle East and North Africa is reaching people with social media. Since it was first posted on April 22, it has received 386 likes on Facebook. Turn on the closed captions for this short video (below), which succinctly captures DNA’s teaching about the church. You will be encouraged!
“The mission of the Church, both individually and corporately, is to continue carrying out Jesus’ plan to redeem a broken, suffering world. How has God gifted you where He has placed you, a member of His Body, to reveal His purposes to the world?”
New Instagram Promotion
In an effort to influence more young people with transformative biblical worldview content, Kingdomizer Samuel Felix Jr. has been working with Luke Allen on an Instagram project called “Brainwash” that calls on believers to be transformed by the renewing of their minds (Romans 12:2). Impact is already obvious in Portuguese and with a growing English-speaking audience. Use the arrows on the right side of the image to view more of this post!

Weekly Podcast: Ideas Have Consequences
As Christians, our mission is to spread the gospel around the world, to all the nations. But our mission also includes transforming culture to increasingly reflect the truth, goodness, and beauty of God’s Kingdom.
Tragically, the church has largely neglected this “second” part of her mission, and today, Christians have little influence on their surrounding cultures.
Join us as we search for practical ways for each of us to address our cultures’ predominant ideas and their consequences. Let’s create Christ-honoring cultures that reflect the character of the living God. Episodes released every Tuesday!
- Capitalism, Socialism and the Biblical Worldview (S1 E21)
- No Life = No Human Rights (S1 E20)
- Hijacked Sexuality (S1 E19)
- Secularism’s Pseudo Freedom (S1 E18)
- We Are All Missionaries (S1 E17)
- Luis Sena: Biblical Worldview Radically Applied….. and many more
Please help us share the show by sending an episode to your friends and family.
Remembering a Great Kingdomizer: Luis Sena
“Our beloved friend and mentor, Luis Sena, died March 22 after fighting cancer. We are very sad. He was our Latin American hero, our teacher, our model, a great man with Christian character, and a true disciple of Christ.”
Luis was an amazing Kingdomizer! If you have been impacted by DNA teaching and want to stay more intentionally connected with others, stay encouraged, and hear about upcoming resources as you seek to live out a biblical worldview, you can learn more or join the Kingdomizer Network now!
Prayers for Impact
“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Colossians 4:2
- Darrow Miller is in the final stages of finishing a new book–A Call for Balladeers: Pursuing Art and Beauty For the Discipling of Nations. Please pray for final details to come together in a timely fashion, for publishing in an electronic flip book version and later in a paper version in both English and Spanish, the promotional strategy for the book, and that the Spirit of God will use the book to encourage Christian artists to become true balladeers.
- Pray for Scott Allen as he continues writing a new book: Ten Words that Transform Culture.
- Pray for a fruitful time at DNA’s Global Forum in October and for funding to support some who should go, but need financial assistance.
- Join us in prayer for peace for Ukraine, along with needed mental health care for the local children and adults who have experienced so much trauma. Pray that God would provide necessary resources for Ukrainians–for food, medicine and fuel as well.
- The Grand Design Course will be released in Spanish very soon! Pray that it will impact individuals who will spread it within their networks and that nations would be discipled!
