Global Forum 2019 – A great success!

Share This Post

Earlier this month, the Disciple Nations Alliance held its 13th Global Forum. It was our biggest Forum yet, with 150 people from over 30 countries in attendance. Many agreed that it was also our best Forum yet!

A big thank you to George Oliveira, DNA champion in Brazil, for capturing the week in this video!  

The Global Forum is a bi-annual event where DNA leaders, trainers and champions gather from around the world to learn from one another, share stories of impact, fellowship and celebrate what the Lord is doing.

At this year’s Forum, we heard story after story of how DNA ideas and teachings are being contextualized and spread throughout the world. Biblical worldview is reaching into schools, churches, art, and even government buildings. We also had the privilege of learning from Vishal Mangalwadi about the gospel’s power to reform nations in end times.

Attendees were both inspired and encouraged:

“I was encouraged so much to see how God moves through his beloved Church in different parts of the world by fulfilling his Word which says that the gates of hell will not prevail against the church.” –Nini, Colombia

“… It is an unbelievable blessing for me to attend this.” -Blake, USA

“Even though we have been working with the book Discipling Nations, being at this forum has broadened and clarified on a greater level the vision of the transformation that God wants to bring to our nations.” -Mark, Mexico

“The best part of the Forum was … the reunion with many colleagues and the knowledge of what God continues to do with the efforts of [the DNA].” –Cesar, Peru

“Thanks to all who made the Forum [happen]. Each of you inspires me to be a better server.” –Luisa, Paraguay

“Thank you very much … It is very valuable and important to continue this movement for the discipleship of the nations.” -Paulo, Colombia

God is using biblical worldview truths and materials to transform communities, churches and individuals throughout the world. Global Forums provide a unique opportunity to hear about this transformation firsthand and give glory to God as a united group. A big thank you to everyone who was involved! We are already looking forward to the next Forum coming in early 2021.

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.
