Leader Development

We desire to cultivate and engage a new generation of leaders as well as strengthen and equip existing leaders for God’s unique calling. We do this through the following streams:



Licensing is the process whereby an applicant is approved by the District for placement in ministry with the Christian & Missionary Alliance in Canada. Applicants being considered for a ministry role in a paid full-time or part time capacity are required to go through the licensing process PRIOR to the Applicant candidating in the church and being hired.

Core Training & ORDINATION

Core Training is for all portable-licensed workers within our district of the C&MA and is the foundation for our workers continued development.

Pursuing ordination is an optional step in the journey with a destination of recognition & celebration as a pastor in the Christian & Missionary Alliance in Canada.


Do you have a passion for Jesus and want to encourage others? Have you considered a career in ministry, but you don’t know where to start? 

Pathways School of Ministry is designed to develop Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered, Mission-focused leaders who learn at their own pace, with schedules that accommodate full time jobs, families or other responsibilities.
