Our Community

We are a global community of Christ followers united by a common mission of church-based wholistic transformation. We champion seven foundational truths and adhere to seven operating principles. We join together to more effectively, strategically, and collaboratively advance our common mission. We are composed of individuals and affiliated organizations. We have local, regional and global expressions. While the names of the local and regional expressions vary, the name for the global alliance is the Disciple Nations Alliance.

Leadership is provided by a team of volunteers known as the Global Leadership Team. An international secretariat provides administrative support to the movement from a small office in Phoenix, Arizona.

“After attending a DNA Vision Conference in Ghana in 1999, I quit my career as a
businessman and became a full-time DNA trainer. Eventually, I become the leader of the
West Africa DNA training network known as Samaritan Strategy Africa. As of
today, more than 30,000 West African pastors and leaders have been trained to
minister wholistically in their communities on the basis of a Biblical worldview.”
