Ambrose President Gordon Smith
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 Joshua Cairns


Despite a lack of interest in faith, Joshua Cairns was drawn to Ambrose because of the strong emphasis on quality education in the biology program and the strong sense of community that he felt at an enrolment open house.

As a student, Joshua leaned into that sense of community and found purpose and meaning that complimented his academic success. The relationships he built with fellow students and faculty brought Joshua to faith in Christ. “Ambrose has really brought together three areas of my life: spiritual, scientific and self-awareness.”

As Joshua completes his Bachelor of Science in Biology, he has great hope for the future. He plans to use his Ambrose education to pursue medicine with a faith-based emphasis, and serve in the community to share the skills God has given him.
