Christian leaders from 16 countries attended the first-ever “Training of Trainers” in Latin America

Share This Post

At the end of May, about 160 pastors and leaders from 16 Latin American countries attended a week-long DNA training in Panama. This event came on the heels of the DNA’s first-ever Regional Forum for Latin America less than a year before.

It was a powerful time for Spanish-speaking Christian leaders to learn about biblical worldview and the DNA global network, to get equipped to train others, and to build and strengthen relationships with like-minded leaders.

DNA co-founder Bob Moffitt (in blue pants) led a training and exercise in which small groups worked together to develop Seed Project plans, then presented them to the group.

What’s next?

  • The DNA Vision Conference in Paraguay still is planned for Sep. 28-Oct. 3. Click here to learn more and register!
  • Leaders from Honduras (about 40 were present at the conference) expressed interest in helping establish a small DNA secretariat office to serve the Latin American region in areas of administration and communication. This would be a great step forward for the movement in the region.
  • Leaders from Honduras, Guatemala and Panama talked about working together to host a Vision Conference specifically for young people.
  • Plans are underway for another Nurturing the Nations conference in Peru in early 2015. Click here to see DNA co-founder Darrow Miller’s presentation from a similar conference in Asia.
  • Others discussed planning a Vision Conference for Argentina.

Looking at the photo of that Latin American conference does more than moving, it challenges me again. I am now and since June in the Basque Country (Spain) where the term “worldview” has not even started to be heard… but that, God providing, will change. Go Latin America!

The Imago Dei

What is your purpose as a Christian? To glorify God? To become Christlike and shine His light? Yes, but how… where does God most clearly lay out His purpose for humanity? In Genesis. This is when God created the world overflowing with beauty and potential, placed humans in it, and presented His first commision for us. Together we will unpack what it means to be made imago Dei, in the image of God. Understanding this concept is critical, and there are consequences if we do not. Learn how an understanding of imago Dei can change individuals, businesses, communities, and nations so that they flourish in the mission God’s given them.

Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder with Brian Chan

Truth, goodness, and beauty are the hallmarks of the Kingdom of God, but sadly we often overlook the “beauty.” We all see a crystal clear river and say it is beautiful. We see another stagnate with debris and trash and say it is polluted and ugly. Why do we share this universal understanding of beauty? Where does this shared understanding come from? There is an intrinsic answer here that points straight back to our Creator. Today we are joined by artist, entrepreneur, professor, author, speaker, and pastor Brian S. Chan. Brian wrote his thesis on the beauty of God and art in worship and has never looked back as he continues to share and deepen his understanding of beauty and the Kingdom. During our discussion, we asked is beauty objective, where does it come from, why do humans pursue ugliness, when did the church have a vision for beauty, and what does a theology of beauty look like? Last, we get practical and ask how can each of us apply this concept into our daily lives.
