About Us

We are an Order of missionary Companions that help to plant new communities of faith that are submitted to Christ Jesus, and his Word.

Our Companions are disciples of Jesus who are part of a global community that shares a common calling and who live a common Rule.

We call our local communities NAMS Bases.

These bases exist to help start new churches.
