Coram Deo: A School for Discipling Nations

When it comes to bringing the Good News of the Kingdom to communities and nations around the globe, the Disciple Nations Alliance, co-founded by Darrow Miller and Bob Moffitt in 1997, has its "boots on the ground." They are friends of Worldview Matters, and we are partners in the common cause of the Kingdom.

The Disciple Nations Alliance began as a joint initiative of Food for the Hungry and the Harvest Foundation. Its mission is: "to envision and equip local churches worldwide to fulfill their strategic, God-given roles in the transformation of communities and nations, through wholistic, incarnational ministry."

Miller and Moffitt began the work of DNA by teaching five-day Vision Conferences. The first Vision Conference was held in Lima, Peru, and since then, hundreds of Vision Conferences have been held in more than 60 nations throughout Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas.

As the Vision Conferences multiplied, local leaders emerged with a passion to spread the training in their own communities and nations. Today, local, self-governing DNA networks exist in more than 45 countries, including a prominent African network called Samaritan Strategy Africa.

I'm very pleased to let you know that DNA recently put the content of their Vision Conference into video format for use by churches and individuals. This 12-week course, called Coram Deo: A School for Discipling Nations, will be available in April

The Coram Deo teaching series is for people longing to see more evidence of the Kingdom of God in their own nations, cities and families, as well as in themselves. As the DNA website puts it, "It is for the NGO executive, the stay-at-home parent, the business leader, and the young college grad ready to change the world."

Darrow Miller is the author of LifeWork: A Biblical Theology for What You Do Everyday. I have made this excellent book required reading in our distance-learning course for Christian educators: "Increase Meaning: A Wholistic Approach to Christian Education."  

For more details about Coram Deo, visit: coming in April.  Consider using this series as a Sunday School class in your church, or with a small group in your home.
