About the Africa Forum

What is the purpose?

In the words of Stephen Langa, a DNA partner in Uganda, “God is doing different things in different places in Africa, and there has been no forum where the wonderful things that the Lord is doing in Africa can be shared and where ‘cross pollination’ can take place.”

The purpose will be to share insights gained over the years in spreading core SSA/DNA teachings and in applying these to specific sectors, and, in general, to share stories, challenges, and lessons learned. The goal is to equip one another to better share SSA/DNA teachings with many others. As soon as the program is drafted, we will post it here.

Who is invited?

This gathering, by invitation only, is for current SSA/DNA trainers, practitioners and affiliates across the African continent–people who have been impacted by SSA/DNA materials and can share about how they’ve applied it. This is not a time for teaching, necessarily, but a time for “cross pollination” among those actively using SSA/DNA materials in their work. We welcome organizations that have adapted and contextualized SSA/DNA training materials or resources for their own use.
