Discipleship is not a “one off” gap year. Think your “Year in with God”, not a “Year out for God”. We never “graduate” from the Jesus school of discipleship! It’s a lifelong commitment to development.
To reflect that, and at the request of many of the church Leaders and trainees that we serve, we have developed DNA 2. This is the ongoing wild journey for those trainees who have completed DNA 1, but who feel that their journey with him and with us is not yet over.
To do DNA 1, you need a call from God to development and discipleship through DNA. But to do DNA 2, you need a clear focus for your future. This might be your workplace, church leadership, youth leadership, student or prison work, church administration or praise & worship leading, etc, etc. Would DNA 2 serve this focus, and do you still feel a connection with DNA?
DNA 2 builds on the work God has done in and through you on DNA 1. Its primary focus is on Leadership Experience and Development. Because by then if you are considering DNA 2 you will probably be very engaged with the life of local work or church and/or ministry Full or Part Time. DNA 2 is deliberately designed to be less intensive but more focused.
