The Disciple Nations Alliance began as a Kingdom partnership between Food for the Hungry and Harvest. Today, a number of other organizations participate actively in the alliance.
Over the past two years, one of the most active has been ReachGlobal, the missions arm of the Evangelical Free Church of America. ReachGlobal sends and supports hundreds of missionaries around the world. Their Executive Vice President, Kevin Kompelien (updated 01.11.17), embraces a wholistic approach to mission and emphasizes the need to strengthen and empower indigenous church leaders. To help in both areas, ReachGlobal has tapped several DNA resources.
Last fall, Dennis Tongoi, director of Samaritan Strategy Africa, the DNA affiliate in Africa, was invited to present some of the core DNA messages to church leaders and faculty of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School near Chicago. More recently, Dennis was brought onto the ReachGlobal leadership team as a consultant.
In March, Dennis and Cristi Petricioiu, the director of the DNA affiliate in Romania, addressed a gathering in Amsterdam of more than 160 ReachGlobal missionaries from across Europe.
DNA is honored to have ReachGlobal as one of its cooperating organizations and we are excited to see how the Lord will lead us in fruitful Kingdom partnership in the days to come.
