Teaching biblical worldview in Mongolia

Share This Post

IMG_4930DNA co-founder Darrow Miller recently returned from his first trip to Mongolia where he taught for two days on biblical worldview and the intersection of faith and vocation to 26 pastors from all over the nation.

Below, Pastor Miga, one of the conference attendees, explains how we have to teach the whole Bible if we want to make disciples and change culture. The conference gave him a bigger vision for his ministry.

IMG_4944During his sessions, Darrow touched on the power of art to shape culture and was asked to teach a third day focusing on this specific topic. Even with short notice, the impromptu “worldview and the arts” mini-conference drew more than 80 people.

While teaching at a local church on Sunday morning, Darrow met Tuya Khongorzul, the executive director of Focus on the Family in Mongolia. Khongorzul says the divorce rate in her nation is high and increasing, along with suicide among children. There is estimated to be at least one alcoholic in every family, and teenage pregnancy, infidelity, abortion and cohabitation also are on the rise.

The DNA teaches the “inside-out process transformation”–that for nations to be discipled as God intends, individuals and families first must be transformed:

Focus on the Family in Mongolia recently hosted a counseling seminar for 77 professionals including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, teachers and students. They provide professional counseling for all age groups, training for parents, and an upcoming art-therapy program for children. They also speak regularly on the radio and on Mongolian television stations, discussing child psychology and promoting healthy family values.

Khongorzul recently received a small collection of DNA books and is considering how to use them in her work.

Beauty: Abortion’s Antidote with Sami Parker

Discover a vision for a culture that recognizes the innate beauty of every human life as we journey with Sami Parker of Live Action through the frontlines of pro-life advocacy. Witness firsthand how Live Action is challenging the prevailing worldviews promoting abortion, utilizing social media to spark transformative discussions that transcend the screen into the very fabric of society. The predominant narrative or story of our time does not recognize God, sees humans as mere animals, and labels unrestrained sex as a “human right.” The biblical worldview recognizes the beauty in every aspect of God’s created order. This episode is a call to Christians to don the full armor of their faith, merging the Gospel’s transformative power with active cultural engagement to foster a society that not only protects, but cherishes life.

Shifts in Journalism that Left Behind Objectivity and the Bible with Dr. Marvin Olasky

Increasingly, news culture pushes stories that advance their agenda from writers sitting behind a desk. Gone are the days when reporters would get onto the street to reveal the facts about what is happening at the heart of an issue. Dr. Marvin Olasky calls us back to this foundation, reminding us of the importance of hearing from diverse viewpoints and going beyond austere sermonizing to tell stories that are not only useful and true, but interesting. Olasky is quick to point out the profound impact that Christianity had on culture as he recounts the mistreatment of people in other times and parts of the world. Join us and consider the news you are hearing and sharing with others.
