While in his 3rd year in MTI Gordon says “the word of the Lord came to me saying He God brought him here and separated me unto Himself, for He has called him to be a teacher of His word to His people bringing a clear understanding of His word.” Gordon has become an ardent teacher of God’s word as many have received Christ in to their lives on account of his teaching of God’s word. He graduated from MTI receiving a Certificate in Practical Theology both were accomplished attending ASU full time during the day and MTI full time at night as he always says “it was all by God’s grace.” He immediately began working on his Masters degree in Theology.

Today Bishop Gordon has completed his Masters in Theology and received a Masters in Church Organization & Management from Friends International Christian University. He is also a teacher in MTI for this as he says “is his way of giving some of his time to the school God used to change his life.”
Bishop Gordon Jr. credits who he is today to three people God used to shape his life:
- His father Bishop Gordon Osagiede Sr. (of blessed memory) for his obedience to God which today has made him a partaker of God’s grace and a son to a godly father that trained his first seed well.
- His mother, Apostle (Mrs.) Eunice Gordon (of blessed memory) for her passion, generous heart and tireless service to God.
- Apostle (Dr.) Alfred Craig (AZUSA World Ministry) his Spiritual father and co-mentor for his love for God’s people and gifting to teach God’s word.
Bishop Gordon Jr. presently is the General Overseer, Senior Pastor and Presiding Bishop of Spirit And Life Family Bible Church Global and continues to be of great service to the kingdom of God, for he is looking forward to hearing God’s voice declare to him when it’s all said and done “Well Done Good and Faithful Servant.”
