Our Community

We are a global community of Christ followers united by a common mission of church-based wholistic transformation. We champion seven foundational truths and adhere to seven operating principles. We join together to more effectively, strategically, and collaboratively advance our common mission. We are composed of individuals and affiliated organizations. We have local, regional and global expressions. While the names of the local and regional expressions vary, the name for the global alliance is the Disciple Nations Alliance.​

"After attending a DNA Vision Conference in Ghana in 1999, I quit my career as a businessman and became a full-time DNA trainer. Eventually, I become the leader of the West Africa DNA training network known as Samaritan Strategy Africa. As of today, more than 30,000 West African pastors and leaders have been trained to minister wholistically in their communities on the basis of a Biblical worldview."
Chris Ampadu
Samaritan Strategy Africa

A joyful reunion

It is a time to strengthen our relationships with the Lord and with one another, renewing our common calling as part of the Disciple Nations Alliance.

Watch this testimony from John and Kate with Mustard Seeds.

Global Forum

A gathering of active trainers, practitioners, affiliated organizations and leaders of DNA networks from all corners of the globe

The forum is a time to learn and celebrate with one another—to share updates, new case studies and ministry models of church-based community transformation. Often, new relationships are formed, causing a noticeable surge in the movement.

If you are part of the global DNA family, this is a week you don’t want to miss! 

Scroll through our gallery to re-live some of our past Global Forums.
