What is the Global Forum?

Every two years, DNA friends, affiliate organizations, local network leaders, trainers and practitioners from around the world gather to worship God, fellowship, network, share stories, and participate in shaping the DNA global movement for the future.

Join us for the first Global Forum to be held in England, hosted by Food for the Hungry UK. Be part of what God is doing to disciple the nations in the 21st century!

As members of the Disciple Nations Alliance Global Leadership Team, we look forward to seeing you next spring in England!

Why you should come to the Forum:

Our Theme

Understanding the covenant that God makes with us, His people, has many practical implications for our lives, our relationships, and ministry. As we grow in our knowledge of God’s unwavering commitment to us members of His church, the ramifications can be transformational as we relate to others in our families and communities.

Not only is it an exciting journey of discovery, but it brings a new and fresh understanding of what God wants to do; a revelation of His purpose, and the assurance and guarantee that it will be accomplished.

The further people, communities, and nations depart from an understanding of God and His covenant, the more broken they become. In the West, covenant in blood is being replaced by contracts in ink. A covenant cannot be broken (“until death do us part”), but contracts can. A contract is about protecting my rights and what is mine. A covenant is about surrendering my rights and giving away what is mine for the benefit of others.

This understanding of covenant is foundational to the Biblical worldview. God speaks to His people through covenants; He is a covenant-keeping God whose word is trustworthy and true. Nations that are built on this understanding of God and His covenant grow stronger and more healthy.  As His church, our identity is rooted in God’s covenant love. Not only should it shape and form us, but we are called to shape our families and nations on the basis of this same, other-serving commitment and love.

The venue, accommodations and meals

High Leigh 1

The High Leigh Conference Center, near the tranquil village of Hoddesdon, is about 30 miles north of central London.

Originally an English manor house, it was built in 1853 and converted to a Christian conference center in 1921. It is situated on 40 acres of lawns, parkland and woodland.


Rooms typically will be shared with one other person. If you have a roommate request, are traveling with family members or require a single room, please please indicate this when you register, and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

Free Wi-Fi is available in the rooms.

High Leigh 2

All meals between dinner on Monday and breakfast on Friday are included. Tea, coffee and light snacks also will be served throughout each day. Should you plan to extend your stay at the venue, please contact Paul Cornelius to arrange for extra meals. Please also indicate any dietary restrictions when you register.


If possible, book your flights to and from London, Heathrow Airport (LHR) airport as this is closest to the venue. Transportation between Heathrow and the venue will be provided free of charge if you arrive and depart within the time frames detailed below. Alternatively, you may use Stansted Airport (STN) but will need to take the 30-minute train plus a short taxi ride to the conference center at your expense. Click here for instructions on taking the train/taxi from Stansted.

If possible, delegates should avoid using Gatwick Airport as it is the furthest away from the venue and the least convenient. If you must do this, e-mail Paul Cornelius for instructions on getting to the venue.


The Forum program will begin with dinner on Monday, March 9. Delegates should plan to arrive at Heathrow airport before 4 p.m. on Monday to catch the free shuttle to the venue.


The Forum program will end the evening of Thursday, March 12. Please plan to stay until Friday as breakfast that day will be served. On Friday, free shuttles from the venue to Heathrow Airport will run about every 2-3 hours between about 6 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Again, if you need to fly out of Stansted or Gatwick airport, while this is not advised, Paul Cornelius can help you arrange your transportation but you will need to cover any costs.

Arriving early or departing late

Included in the registration fee are lodging on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, as well as all meals between dinner on Monday and breakfast on Friday. If you choose to arrive early or depart late, you will need to make your own travel, food and lodging arrangements. E-mail Paul Cornelius with any concerns about this.

NOTE: You will not be able to stay at the conference center on March 13 or after because they have no available rooms.


For delegates from countries that require a visa to enter the UK, visa letters will be provided upon request.
