Tribal Leaders Summit - Melbourne
Leaders following Jesus in building disciplemaking movements
I am excited to share with you this opportunity to participate in the SHIFTm2M Tribal Leaders gathering in Melbourne. Our vision is to bring movement building leaders together and develop a strategy for moving the large church networks and structures in Australia towards Jesus’ approach to movement building and the acceleration of the gospel in our nation.
As a partner and key person in our SHIFTm2M community you are committed to the vision of seeing a different future than what is currently being played out in Australia. You are hungry to see believers refreshed and empowered with the vision of Jesus’ mission, equipped to be active in the harvest as fishers of men, and strategic in focusing on the vast majority non-churched population in Australia. You also know the key is more than just better events, refreshed marketing, or doubling up of Christian “busy pond” work. You know that leaders need to experience a radical shift in their thinking, planing and evaluating around the model of Jesus and that SHIFTm2M is a helpful tool in achieving that.
Together with John North, Peter Roennfeldt and others, I invite you to seriously and prayerfully consider gathering with us in Melbourne for a strategic summit of our key partners to pray, share, and plan on how we can more intentionally work to achieve our wider vision: to raise up a generation of leaders, who live out the priorities and character of Jesus, and lead the transformation of Christian communities into movements of multiplying disciple-makers.
What would it take over the next 3-5 years for us to realign the influencers in the Body of Christ around disciplemaking movements and the model of Jesus? Even from our small beginning, what could we do together through an intentional plan and coordinated effort that we could never do alone? What faith goals could we share and draw motivation from? What do we already have in place and resources available?
Our objective is to draft a shared strategy to move us toward the vision.
Please prayerfully consider rearranging your schedule to prioritise joining us in Melbourne on July 24th for this very strategic day. The vision needs your involvement and influence through your own organisation and the wider networks.
Hoping to invest this day with you!
