Leadership the Jesus Way.


Announcing ‘Jesus-Shaped Leadership’ a new small group Leadership Development Course by NAMS.

“To learn to be a disciple-making leader means to help people enter deeper into dependence upon the Lord Jesus, not ourselves.”

(NAMS Founder, Revd Canon Dr Jon Shuler)

In NAMS, we have always believed that the holy tasks of spreading the good news of Jesus and planting new churches are intimately related to the making of disciples who make disciples AND the raising up of faithful and fruitful leaders who believe and practice this passionately.

Indeed, we believe it is self-evident that the work of God’s church and kingdom cannot be accomplished without called, prepared and consecrated new leadership – who have learned to be utterly dependent on Jesus

The Jesus-Shaped Leadership course is a 7-week small group course on Jesus’ method for raising disciple-making leaders. It calls attention to the kind of leaders he modeled, incubated, trained and sent into the world.

Two free resources (A Participant course book and a Leaders/Facilitators Guide) have just been published on the resource page of our website:


(under the heading ‘Jesus-Shaped Leadership’)

Our prayer is that this short course will bring focus on the vision, values and godly methods of kingdom leadership development.

Each week’s lesson will focus on a different facet of leadership as the Scriptures and our Lord Jesus taught or instructed. It is hoped that the teaching from Scripture, personal sharing, mentoring and practical application will catalyze a culture of learning, encouragement and accountability for new and seasoned leaders alike. (The Leaders/Facilitator’s Guide will give additional information on how to run each session).

We have also released a new e-book in conjunction with the Jesus-Shaped Leadership course, also available on our resource page. It is called ‘4 Things Kingdom Leaders Do.’ You can access it directly from this link:


Please feel free to download, share and use these resources.

Disciple-making Disciple Series — Part 7

Disciple-Making Disciples – YouTube Video Series

Continuous learning is essential for effectiveness. This is true as well in all the work that God gives his people to do. It is nowhere more true than in learning to be an effective disciple-making disciple.

NAMS was born with a God given desire to help plant disciple-making congregations. We have taught this from the beginning. But we have gone on learning how to apply this to the work he has given NAMS.

I want to introduce to you our latest contribution to this subject. We have produced a series of short You Tube Videos focused on what NAMS has learned about “Becoming Disciple-Making Disciples.”

Here is the first one. May God use it for his glory and the spread of his kingdom in Christ Jesus.

The Disciple-making Disciple

In Matthew 28:19, Jesus calls all his followers to “Go … and make disciples of all nations”, but what does that mean for us?

NAMS believes we are all called to be people who are willing to share their faith. Not only that, but to teach those with whom we share how to pass it on in kind.

This disciple-making disciple principle is one of the foundations upon which NAMS is built and we’d love the opportunity to share it with you.

We’ve put together the following video, which begins to explain the disciple-making disciple principles and introduces the upcoming disciple-making disciple courses.

If you’re interested in learning more, it’d be great to hear from you.
