Christian leaders from around Australia are invited to learn together through SHIFTm2M – a relational learning environment centred on the gospel accounts of Jesus’ ministry. Engage with other leaders while immersing yourself in His life and ministry. You will be partnered with a facilitator to help you wrestle with the realities of implementing what you discover about movement building in your own life and ministry context.

This is not an effort to prescribe a ‘model’ of doing ministry that you can take and plant over your old style. SHIFTm2M is a journey to discover the foundation of what Christ is calling leaders to be and what efforts He asks leaders to build into as His followers. How it looks in your context will vary greatly, however our hope is that you will grasp a greater vision for true disciple-making and will begin to see your ministry as Christ does.

SHIFTm2M groups are learning communities of 3-15 leaders coming together to study the Life of Christ… specifically how Christ made disciples who could make disciples. Centred around three training manuals, SHIFTm2M Groups are times of study, training, discussion and evaluation. Meeting together over a period of 1-2 years, you’ll study movement building principles from the life of Christ which have been used by tens of thousands of leaders globally.

I would recommend SHIFT to anyone looking to have a Jesus Framework for ministry and building Kingdom Movements. The text book is the Gospels and the discussion is all based in the reality of men and women who have been seeking to be genuine disciples of Christ and mobilise others to be the same. The challenges and setbacks we have faced are all confronted and a way forwarded is slowly constructed through the example of Jesus’ own life and priorities. The course has shifted my mentality, given me clarity as to Jesus’ own priorities and values and ensured that I can look at the challenges before me and the movements I lead through a lens of divine precedence.
