“DNA’s intensive and varied style of training produces new leaders who have an understanding of the heart of the matter and how to apply it to a needy world. Theoretical study is combined with practical experience in a context of worship and ministry. Other Christian bodies could do well to look at their model. Long live DNA!”
Canon Dr. Michael Green
