DNA Global Forum in Pretoria South Africa a Great Success

Share This Post

More than 120 people from 23 nations attended the forum

More than 120 champions, practitioners, national and regional alliance leaders, and partner organizations of the Disciple Nations Alliance gathered together in Pretoria, South Africa for the biennial 2011 Global Forum, hosted by the Southern Africa region of Samaritan Strategy Africa. Delegates from 23 countries attended. It was a rich time of fellowship, story-sharing, prayer and fun.

Also attending the Forum were leaders from several organizations who came to explore joining the DNA as partners. These included African Leadership, ACROSS, Immanuel International, and World Gospel Mission. A delegation of church leaders from Brazil also attended with the desire to explore next steps in forming a national DNA network in that country.

Highlights of the four-day event included hearing many powerful stories of impact from around the world, with a particular focus on stories from Africa. The forum opened with a day of prayer and fasting, followed by times of worship, and an enthusiastic “world cup of volleyball” with the championship trophy going to Asia.

Darrow Miller, Bob Moffitt (DNA co-founders), and Dennis Tongoi (leader of Samaritan Strategy Africa) shared messages from their hearts with delegates, and the president of the DNA International Secretariat, Scott Allen, presented the ten-year strategic direction of the Disciple Nations Alliance. Anna and Nam Ho also shared details of their powerful church-based development program in Southeast Asia.

The next DNA Global Forum will be held in Spring 2013 in Latin America (exact location is yet to be determined).

Dear DNA Team,

My sincere appreciations for the conference well hosted in Pretoria last Feb to March. I personally had a great time of reflection, interaction and special encounter with the Lord. That conference left me more focused to pursue Gods’ leading in my life. Am blessed to have been part of the life changing experience. May the good Lord truly bless all our works and efforts as the DNA movement globally.
Golda

How Do Ideas Disciple Nations?

63% of Americans claim to be Christians, yet our culture is becoming increasingly chaotic and full of sin. Why is this happening? The reason is that most Christians only know how to apply the Bible to certain areas of life. The consequence is that Christians have little to no impact on culture. Do you see it?

This episode will give you an introduction to Ideas Have Consequneces, the podcast of the Disciple Nations Alliance. This is an action-oriented show where you’ll hear from a variety of biblical worldview teachers, writers, and cultural commentators. Our goal is to apply the Bible to every area of life by wrestling with the most prominent ideas in our cultures and seeking to practically interact with them from a biblical perspective.
