Our Partner Organizations
Of course, no one organization or training tool can encompass all that is contained in the seed of an mDNA competency. Our partner organizations carry the heart of the mDNA and infuse it in their exemplary and focused training conducted by in-field practioners.
Another element of authentic mDNA: the active presence of the apostolic, prophetic, evangelistic, shepherding, and teaching (APEST) functions-ministries listed in Ephesians 4 and evidenced throughout the book of Acts. Especially catalytic for missional movements is the apostolic person. This mDNA relates to the type of ministry and leadership required to sustain exponential growth and transformational impact.
This mDNA component is marked by the twin impulses of remarkable missional movements—namely, the dynamic outward thrust to be missional and the related deepening impulse expressing the incarnational nature of Jesus. Together, these seed and embed the gospel into different cultures and people groups.
Jesus Is Lord
At the center and circumference of every significant Jesus movement there exists a very simple confession. Though simple, it is one that fully vibrates with the primal energies of the scriptural faith—namely, that of the claim of the one God over every aspect of every life, and the response of his people to that claim (Deut. 6:4–6). The way that this was expressed in the New Testament and later movements was simply “Jesus Is Lord!” With this simple confession they changed the world. While Jesus Is Lord can never be reduced down to a single concept or tool, these training options can create a place to start by asking the question about personal and collective calling.
