DNA is a partner organization of Amor Ministries that is based out of the UK. They are a passionate community of people who would love to journey with you in your Christian discipleship and leadership development. In their program, you will discover more about God, be nurtured into greater wholeness, and put it all into action. The possibilities are endless!
DNA runs for one year with the option to extend your program with two additional years. You can join in a full or flexi capacity, with overseas placement as an option. This is where the partnership with Amor takes place.
Every summer 1-2 participants from DNA spend their overseas placement with Amor in Mexico as field interns and program participants. In addition to a 6-month church-based training in the UK, DNA participants have the opportunity to learn the day-to-day life of working in a non-profit charity.
The DNA/AMOR partnership is ideal for potential trainees from ANY nation who have a passion to be discipled, to be closer to Jesus, love justice, and want to explore their calling by spending 6 months in the UK and 4 months at our camp in Tijuana, Mexico.
Projects can consist of:
- Visiting the Tijuana dump where Amor began, and learning the history of the ministry
- Meeting leaders of local organizations, and learning about some of the realities of living in Mexico
- House building
- Camp set up and caretaking
- Helping with Amor’s tool program
- Serving in the camp Amor Store
- Serving mission trip groups as they arrive at the Amor office
You can’t give away what you haven’t got. DNA is about discovering who you are, and how you are. Going deeper in knowing God as your Father, Jesus as your Brother and the Holy Spirit as your Helper. Learning to love yourself and discovering your dreams and your gifts, and changing your life for good! Forever!
DNA is your year of great growth. You’ll be stretched, but also safe! We create a culture and a community of family, love and laughter, as well as challenge and change. Our emphasis is on your discipleship and development, because it’s as you grow that you can grow others. How do we create this culture of Nurture? Through the DNA Team, our support staff, our teaching team, and through engagement with previous DNA Trainees on years 2 and 3. And through careful placement of trainees to quality local church, either your own or one that we provide. We are all about serving and working through local church, God’s chosen vehicle on earth.
You can’t be discipled in a vacuum. A disciple is a learner-doer. So on DNA what you learn is what you do. It’s faith in action. If our emphasis is on your discipleship, yours will be on serving God, His people, and the wider community. Your year will be packed with opportunities to learn through servanthood in action, locally, nationally and overseas. You will never be used as cheap labour; rather your serving will be the context for your growth and development. DNA is never about theoretical theology, but it’s about theology in action, because what you really believe is what you do and how you live. Come and Join in!
