To our faithful and prospective supporters,

Thank you for considering a gift to Ambrose University. We have embarked on a new campaign to attract students to our university to join of vision for faith inspired learning.

Today, a Christian liberal arts university is all the more important in an increasingly pluralistic and secular society. We are keen to provide a strong alternative to the public university, with an emphasis on the integration of faith and learning, transformation in Christ, and authentic Christian community as the context and setting for excellence in higher education.

Our vision includes growth in enrolment and student satisfaction, growth in the selection of degrees we offer, the expansion of our campus, and the recognition of Ambrose University as one of the top destinations in Canada for Christian liberal arts education and ministry training. It is with this in mind that we ask you choose to join us in equipping our students to lead Godly lives, either in full time ministry or as leaders in the greater community.

Ambrose Student Kaitlin


Kaitlin didn’t come into her faith until 10th grade—when her mother lost her job and their family found support through a local church. Her spiritual path led to Ambrose, where she is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Behavioural Science.

As a part of a travel study trip to Africa, Kaitlin will be learning about international development and the work of local NGOs as they fight poverty. After graduation, she aspires to help women in India exiting from sexual exploitation.

Kaitlin’s education at Ambrose was made possible by the financial support of her church, which was matched by Ambrose and its generous donors. It’s because of supporters like you who have provided countless students with the opportunity to learn and explore their faith.

The Story of Mjolsness Hall: Giving to an Educational Institute to Make a Difference in the Worldmjolsness family

Mjolsness Hall, an area that houses the library and academic offices, came to be when Chester Mjolsness and his wife Martha were joined by family and friends to honour Chester’s enduring life of leadership, integrity and faith. Chester was born in 1919 and raised on a farm west of Sundre, AB. In 1943, he began a sawmill business that remains thriving to this day. On March 5, 2021, Chester passed away peacefully at home at the age of 101.

Ambrose’s continual commitment to raising inspiring Christian leaders resonated strongly with Chester when he first visited the campus. His ties to Ambrose not only lie in his generous gift to the campus, but he is proud to provide an environment for his great-granddaughter Samantha to study and worship during her post-secondary education.

In response to why he chose to support Ambrose, Chester said, “To whom much is given much is expected.” Chester also actively encourages us all to make any kind of difference as long as we are guided by faith. He said, ‘Little is much if God is in it.” And finally, to sum it up best, these commemorating words can be found engraved on a plaque situated at Mjolsness Hall: “Live with integrity, keep your word, build relationships, give back, and trust God.” These are truly encouraging words of wisdom that will now be part of the legacy Chester Mjolsness has left at Ambrose for years to come.
