Foundations for Ministry

The Foundations For Ministry Certificate is relevant and practical instruction for men and women engaged in ministry across Canada, specficially geared towards Church workers and lay individuals involved in ministry. Those who wish to complete this certificate must take five courses in at least three different areas: Understanding the Bible, The Christian Faith, Personal Formation & Development, Foundation in Ministry, and Mission & Evangelism. Classes may be taken at your own pace when offered. Once you have completed the requirements, you will be issued your Certificate in Foundations For Ministry. If you wish to pursue further studies with Ambrose University, you can apply up to 6 credit hours (one credit hour is given per FMC class you complete) towards any Seminary program.

Each class costs $150.00 if taken for credit towards the certificate, or $50.00 if taken for audit (this does not get you credit towards the certificate, this is just to take the class for your own personal enjoyment).

You will also receive a confirmation email from the Office of the Registrar with details of your class. If you have any questions, please email
