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.
After registering for a SHIFTm2M group you will be sent the Movement Building manual, Knowing Him manual, a link to the Knowing Him supplemental podcasts and videos. We also include a Harmony of the Gospels.
Even if you are not participating in a SHIFTm2M group, you can still purchase materials from our online store.
The Australian College of Ministries (ACOM) has worked with Power to Change to develop two units as supplemental study to the SHIFTm2M process. You can credit your SHIFTm2M study at Undergraduate or Postgraduate level.
