Darrow and Gary from the DNA International Secretariat office recently wrote a powerful blog post that speaks to two highly pertinent issues.

Because it presents ideas that are so central to the DNA—the need for church-based social and cultural transformation—we wanted to share it at this page as well.

Who is not stunned by today’s news stories of violence?

  • On July 22 Anders Behring Breivik murdered 91 fellow Norwegians.
  • Just two weeks later we witnessed the August riots in England.

We have all seen pastors who lean too heavily on engaging in the culture at the expense of the Scripture, or those who purely preach the Word without ever connecting it to the congregation’s lives. Pastor Blaine Braden from Eastmont Church in Oregon shares his thoughts on staying grounded and relevant as the church in a post-Christian culture.

Healing the Poverty Mindset pt. Two with Tim & Terry Andrews

Imagine working tirelessly year after year to bring development to a community that vacillates between feast and famine, where some people struggle with chronic malnourishment. Still, no amount of money, planning, or technology ever seems to help the community change. Even after working with people for decades, they still have yet to embrace better crop selection and storage methods, and the middleman seems to take whatever profit could exist. Until you begin to see reality from an entirely different perspective. Once you share it with these communities, change begins to happen rapidly. Learn about this change firsthand from Tim Andrews as he shares his 30 years of experience working in the African relief and development world.
