Handle with Care

Ambrose Pastors Conference is an annual gathering designed to empower and uplift those in pastoral ministry. At Ambrose, we appreciate the courage and care it takes to lead in the world of pastoral ministry. That's why our theme for this year is "Handle with Care," an exploration of navigating the demands of ministry.

Get ready to be inspired by our remarkable lineup of speakers, featuring David Fitch, "Handling Power with Care"; Bryce Ashlin-Mayo, "Handling Your Calling with Care"; and Sarah Coleson-Derck, "Handling Scripture with Care."

Whether you choose to join us in person or connect online, we're excited to have you join us. And for those embarking on a journey to be part of this event, don't forget to take advantage of our exclusive hotel discount, available when you register. We hope that you will join us for what is sure to be a insightful and inspiring event.
