‘Lead like Jesus’ is a 1-year leadership development pathway for emerging leaders to focus on learning and implementing the priorities we see demonstrated through Jesus, the leader.

The core training for this one-year program is SHIFTm2M. This is a journey to discover the foundation of what Christ is calling leaders to be and what He asks leaders to build into as His followers. Through a foundation of a slow, thorough, and fascinating study through the gospels, you will unpack Jesus’ disciple-making movement principles and apply them to your ministry context.

Along with this, you will connect with others in your cohort through the Annual Retreat and EL Workshops. As we have a high value on your development as a leader, you will be engaged in mentoring, coaching and ministry placement.

Lastly, you will have the choice between two study options:

1.      Completing either academic study through our partnership with ACOM.
2.     Completing our Leadership Competencies study option. This is a non-accredited option of study that focuses on 8 core leadership competencies and numerous leadership and ministry-specific electives.

We would love you to apply or partner with us in developing emerging leaders who lead like Jesus.


This 1-year program costs $1500.00 upfront (to be paid prior to the Annual Retreat).


This cost includes the following;

  • Coaching

  • Training

  • Retreats (including accommodation for the Annual Retreat)

  • Workshops

*This cost MAY NOT include flights or travel incurred as a result of attendance or other requirements associated with the program.

*If selecting the academic study option, there is no upfront costs unless you withdraw early.

Collaborative Learning Cohort

Throughout the trimester, we meet fortnightly (on Zoom for 1.5 hrs) and explore what we are learning and wrestling with through the text that has been selected for each topic. With a focus on application throughout these meetings, we look to make the connections from our head, to our heart and hands as leaders.

SHIFTm2M Training

The training dates will be available in the welcome pack, with all first year participants in any program, participating in the training. With various gathering places around Australia, the 9 training days throughout the year will not only be a time for you to grow and develop as a leader, but to see you develop a disciple making ministry that we pray, will multiply as you continue to apply what you learn.

Retreat's & Workshops

With the annual retreat being held in Melbourne (February), it is a great opportunity to kick start your year with others in community. Where as, the EL workshops (August) will be an opportunity for you and others in your networks, to be equipped and engaged, with various gathering places around Australia. 


With a focus on the head, heart and hands; you will receive six coaching sessions per year. These will be structured throughout the year with a focus specifically on the application of our core training focus for the year.
