seminar? _________ If so, specifically what leadership are you expecting? ____________________

Updated July 25, 2011
If your seminar will be in any language besides English, you will be responsible for completing
translation of the printed materials and Power Point presentations before your seminar begins. (Some
materials are already available in several languages. The DNA Conference Coordinator will be able to
give you anything that is already prepared in the language you need.) If necessary, will you be able to
complete translation before your seminar begins?________________________________________

Most DNA seminars require five days of teaching, however, they can be shortened if a five-day event
doesn’t work in your context. Ideally, the seminar schedule would look something like this:

Day 1                   Day 2              Day 3                 Day 4                 Day 5

DNA has a variety of excellent trainers who provide DNA teaching. If necessary, please briefly describe
what type of trainer would be ideal in your context. If it’s important to you, let us know which language,

What city/airport would the trainers need to fly into? ________________________________________
In which city would the seminar be held and how much travel time is needed to get there from the
airport? ____________________________________________________________________________

Updated July 25, 2011
Due to the interactive nature of the teaching, it is necessary to have flexible seating at the seminar site,
preferably around tables (if possible, round tables) that would seat five to seven people. Is this
possible? _______Please describe the facilities.

The following resources are desirable to have at the seminar. Please check the ones that would be
  Minimum of two translators; one must be comfortable with theological/biblical language
  VCR or DVD player
  Data projector to project Power Points
  White board and markers or blackboard and chalk
  Large newsprint (paper measuring about half a meter by one meter) and markers
  Ground transportation
  Photocopy machine
  Email access (phone lines) for trainers
  Accommodations for trainers (please describe):__________________________________________

For Vision Conference only:
A Vision Conference is meant to be the beginning of an ongoing process of engagement with churches
and Christian leaders in your city or region. We have found that as a part of planning for a Vision
Conference, it is good to begin to develop a follow-up strategy. Each Vision Conference includes specific
application exercises that participants will be challenged to carry out following the conference. The
follow-up strategy should include scheduling a time where Vision Conference participants can gather to
share/report on what they did for their application exercise, what happened as a result, and what they
plan to do next.

To facilitate this, it is important to organize a follow-up task force. In the space below, please give us
some indication of how you might establish this follow-up task force and identify some of the key points
for your follow-up strategy.

Updated July 25, 2011
Unless otherwise agreed upon, the local hosting committee (you) will reimburse the trainers for the
cost of their international airfare to and from your country at the time the tickets are purchased. All
local expenses for the seminar are also the responsibility of the hosts.

I, ________________________________, the local seminar coordinator, understand that all expenses
of the seminar must be paid with local resources and that the DNA Secretariat in the USA does not
normally give donations to fund the seminars. I agree to reimburse the trainers for their round-trip
