Deeper Life EO2 - Personal Vision

Recorded July 31, 2016 

Gateway Caledonia


Vision is a clear image of a preferred future. It is seeing the destination from where we are and it guides our walk of faith. Without a progressive vision people become undisciplined and wander aimlessly through life. God has a vision and purpose for your life. Personal vision is it’s discovery.

Pursuing Ordination is both a journey & a process with a destination of recognition & celebration as a Pastor in the Christian & Missionary Alliance in Canada.

Our hope and prayer is that your experience will be a significant contributor to your growth and maturing as a follower of Jesus Christ and as a leader in the Church. Your studies and participation in the program are intended to introduce or further develop you in a number of key areas theologically and pastorally, and should stimulate your ongoing growth and learning on these and other themes.

You can start your journey in two ways!
The traditional approach or take the road less traveled by joining out Pilot Project (see below for details on both): 

(Please Note: ONLY Official Workers licensed with a Portable License with the Christian & Missionary Alliance in Canada are eligible for Ordination.

Please contact the CCD Ministry Centre to get started on your Ordination Journey.

Grip Birkman

What is the


A stewardship tool.

The Grip-Birkman is a combination of two resources that help people grow
in their understanding of who God created them to be naturally (Birkman) and
how God works through them supernaturally (Leadership Grip).


The Birkman Method is a behavioural assessment that has been used by over four million people around the world and is now available in over 20 languages. The profile explores your:

  • Interests (what you want to see happen or accomplished)
  • Usual Style (how you go about accomplishing your goals most effectively)
  • Needs (your expectations of life and of others)
  • Stress Style (how you tend to respond when your needs are not met)


The Leadership Grip unpacks your supernatural design through three areas:

  • Spiritual Gifts Language – discovering and discerning where God works powerfully through you.
  • Team Language – realizing how your gifts function in a team setting: the benefits and liabilities.
  • Body Building Language – uncovering how your gifts equip and support others to grow and expand the Body of Christ.
