Who We Are....
Origin of the Associaton: The Canadian Association of Ministries & Pastors (C.A.M.P.), internationally known as 'The Christian Association of Ministries & Pastors" was born in the hearts of godly men who believed that there was a definite need of a body that would bring Christian workers together in unity and in a common purpose.
They believed there were many churches and ministries that were disconnected and wanted and needed a covering and spiritual oversight. Many denominations and associations in existence do not provide sufficient networking for the credential holders or the churches they represent. They wanted to change that by being a working organization that would help individuals and churches to become all that God has called them to be.

Gilgal Christian Community
Gilgal is a Christian Community which exists to foster and assist in the planting and establishment of churches. We are preeminently a church planting movement and not a denomination. Our member churches find spiritual covering and assistance during the process of being planted and in every aspect of ministry. Ultimately, our goal is to see every church plant grow to the point that it can become a fully operating, duly registered, and independent church. (access our site
