New DNA affiliate: Healing Nations

Share This Post

Disciple Nations Alliance consists of like-minded individuals and organizations who actively advance the mission within their spheres of influence. Healing Nations is one such affiliate organization. The mission of Healing Nations is to cultivate spiritual and physical flourishing through cross-cultural ministry. They do this by connecting churches and groups across borders and providing them with wholistic discipleship tools. Hear more about Healing Nations from executive director Mike Bell at their website.

Mike Bell first stumbled upon the DNA by accident. Having been impacted by a paper authored by Ralph Winter on the historical bifurcation of the church, Mike was scouring the internet in search of an electronic copy. When he finally found one, it was on the DNA’s website. Mike writes:

I began exploring the site and realized DNA was the next step in the journey to understanding the wholistic nature of the Gospel and what the Kingdom of God was really all about.

Since then, Healing Nations has begun integrating DNA materials into its training in a number of ways. They promote Coram Deo online courses as a discipleship tool for individuals and groups preparing for mission trips. They utilize Made to Flourish and Footings: Worldview Training for Children as additional discipleship tools.

Healing Nations is also currently working with a pastor in Cuba to launch Coram Deo classes in his community and distribute DNA materials among other local pastors.

Mike Bell’s hope is that the integration of Coram Deo will spark transformation in the hearts of individuals and begin to spread within church congregations. We look forward to hearing how God uses DNA materials and the mission of Healing Nations to unite individuals and communities across borders and truly bring healing to the nations.

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.
