RIDM Roadmap


Welcome, we’re glad you visited!
Our passion is for you to become the person God created you to be and find true meaning in life by pursuing your God-given purpose.
Who you think you are may not be who you really are, and getting to the real you is not a one-time experience.
We are delighted to come alongside you on the journey to becoming real.
First, how about a quick GPS exercise to locate where you are on this important journey?
The exercise involves three checkpoints: PONDER. REVIEW. ASSESS.

How Real Are You?


the real you are


1. What does God think about you?
2. What makes you special?
3. Why do you exist?



Here is the Bible-based perspective for the three questions you just thought about.

1. What does God think about you?
As your Creator, God thinks of you with the heart of a loving Father. He longs for you to know Him as your Heavenly Father and to embrace the perfect unconditional love He has for you. He loves you just the way you are, and sees you as a person of great potential who has not yet become all that He created you to be. In God’s eyes you are significant and of great value.
Read John 3:16 & 1 Corinthians 2:9
For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.

2. What makes you special?
You are special because God chose to create you as a unique representation of His image. Although others may have similar talents, gifts and abilities, you are not exactly like anyone else. You are the one-of-a-kind original masterpiece of an Exclusive Designer – Almighty God.
Read Psalm 139:14
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.

3. Why do you exist?
You are chosen by God to fulfill a unique purpose in your generation and leave a legacy for future generations. You are here to make a difference!
Read John14:16
You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit.

Congratulations, you’re at your new beginning!Congratulations, you’re on your way!


Now that you have an idea of how your self-perception compares to the truth of God’s Word, we invite you to take the next step of exploring the Personal Identity Road Map.
If you are in the yellow zone, the road map will get you started with relevant foundational principles. If you are in the green or blue zone, the road map will provide insights to help you advance through the process of becoming the person God created you to be.


The Personal Identity Road Map (Road Map) is to you what a physical roadmap is to a driver. It will help you navigate your way on the journey to your destination of becoming the person God created you to be. It will also help you bridge the gap between where you are presently and where you want to be.

Your personal identity journey involves two key dimensions: becoming who God says you are and doing what God designed you to accomplish.

On your journey, you will explore seven Service Stops, each unlocked by a key question.  Your discoveries at each service stop build on each other and advance you toward the goal of realizing the greatness for which you were uniquely created.

Let’s begin the most liberating and rewarding journey of your life!


Where did I come from? You were born into a family through your parents, but your roots are in God. His divine love is the motivating force for your existence. Knowing where you come from is the only starting point to genuine fulfillment and satisfaction in your journey through life. 



Why am I here?  Before God even created the earth, He planned for you to be alive at this time to fulfill a unique purpose. Your purpose is at the center of your identity discovery process. You cannot truly know yourself until you discover your purpose and unlock the greatness within you.



How am I fashioned? Although others may have talents and abilities that are similar to yours, no other person is exactly like you. You are an original work of art, carefully and intricately fashioned to fit your individual purpose. You are God’s masterpiece.



What is my ability? You are capable of becoming greater and doing more because God has deposited treasures in you that are waiting to be accessed and developed. This is an essential truth to take with you on your personal identity journey.



How do I see myself? God has created you with the capacity for both spiritual and natural vision. Spiritual vision is insight. With insight you have the ability to clearly see as God sees. This kind of vision is the most important gift God has given you for the fulfillment of your purpose. 



Am I releasing my potential for greatness? Productivity is the delivery system of your real identity. It is the expression and experience of who you really are. Productivity means you are purposefully releasing and displaying your unique greatness.



Am I fulfilling my unique purpose? Discovering and fulfilling your destiny is not a once-for-all experience. The ongoing pursuit of your life purpose to uniquely reflect and represent God on the earth is essentially what fulfilling your destiny is about. 


Recover Your Blessing Birthright

Can you imagine a future where silence does not leave children to figure out who they really are and their purpose for being alive?

. . . a future where deep wounds inflicted by ill-spoken words are not left to fester and later erupt as emotional and physical violence?

. . . a future in which the mainstay of our lives, from the womb to the end of our days, is the spoken blessing that legitimizes our existence, anchors us in unconditional love, and imparts to us treasures of belonging, security, significance, value, dignity and so much more?

. . . a future where we live in a culture saturated with the power of the spoken blessing and we faithfully exercise our God-given authority as blessing ambassadors?

  • Discover the missing “something” that thoroughly satisfies hungry hearts.
  • Recover the family blessings that God intended you to receive to empower you for a fulfilling journey through life.
  • Receive the anointing of your heavenly Father’s Blessing Mantle.
  • Develop the spiritual art of blessing your life, your family and wider community with the gift of your words.
  • Be the agent of transformation that God has ordained you to become.
