His tireless efforts and relentless dedication have shaped NAMS into the unique religious order it is today.
The appointment of Bishop Josep signifies an exciting new era for NAMS. With a clear vision and deep commitment to fulfilling the Great Commission, Josep Rossello is poised to build on the firm foundation laid by Jon Shuler and lead NAMS into new frontiers. This appointment reflects the commitment to continued growth, global pioneer church planting outreach, and the establishment of vibrant communities of faith among the nations.
