At the center of the Disciple Nations Alliance lies a set of ideas—or a "school of thought" focused on the necessity of Biblical Truth, expressed through church-based wholistic ministry, for social and cultural transformation.
It is summarized in our core beliefs and it's methodology is captured in our operational principles.
This school of thought is communicated through DNA conferences and seminars, books and resources, as well as papers and articles. It is promoted and transferred through trainers and modelers worldwide.
This school of thought has functioned as a catalyst in launching and influencing Christian ministries, organizations and networks around the world as part of a larger, Spirit-driven movement for church-based social transformation. It finds its roots and draws inspiration from the great champions of 17th and 18th century church-based social and cultural reform, including John Wesley, William Wilberforce, William Carey, Jonathan Edwards and others.
More recently, it has been influenced by the teaching of Abraham Kuyper, C.S. Lewis, and significantly by American missionary and evangelist Francis Schaeffer.
Disciple Nations Alliance “ideas shapers” are individuals who have contributed to the formation and promotion of the DNA school of thought through their books, articles and public speaking, teaching and modelling.
