DAI believes that leadership development is a lifelong process, which means that all leaders need to keep growing. One of the most effective ways of continuing to grow is both being mentored and mentoring others. 

DAI believes in “relational mentoring” that focuses on intentional friendship, discipleship, and skills coaching with the goal of helping each leader become all God intends for them to be. By modeling mentoring, teaching about it and encouraging every leader to mentor others, a culture of mentoring begins to thrive.


DAI staff provide organizational consulting in the areas of leadership, strategic planning, organizational structure, financial development, financial accountability, adult learning, research, and evaluation. This consulting helps leaders and their ministries thrive.

In the US, DAI consultants work closely with churches to help them discover how to increase the effectiveness of their global ministries. Specifically DAI helps churches to: facilitate and develop effective cross-cultural partnerships; develop transformative short-term mission teams; evaluate new and existing partnerships and ministry opportunities and connect with leaders and ministries in the Majority World.



DAI is committed to connecting leaders and their organizations to other ministries and resources in an effort to help them become as fruitful as possible. There are many things beyond leadership development needed by the leaders we serve. When we find out about such a need and realize a possible resource that will meet that need, we “connect” the two. This can take many forms, like agricultural expertise, water and sanitation contacts or books on a particular subject. Whatever the form, ‘connecting” always has a goal of more ministry impact for the communities being served.
