Seminary Mission


Why Seminary?

  • Skilled and inspiring faculty lead you deeper into Christianity, bringing your faith into clearer focus, informing your identity and enhancing your understanding of ministry.
  • Rigourous, respected programs grow your theological knowledge and skills.
  • A diverse student body opens avenues of discussion and broadens your perspective.
  • Flexible learning fits your life - whether it's the convenience of online, weekend and evening courses or a program that ladders from a certificate to a graduate degree so you can build your credentials class by class.




"At Ambrose Seminary, we are students of scripture and theology. We focus on the components of ministry - preaching, mission, discipleship and pastoral care. We are attentive to the history and traditions of the Christian church. And we understand that Christian ministry happens when the love of God and people is at its centre."

~Jo-Anne Badley, Dean of Theology

This is diversity

A rich campus life starts with diversity - of people, professionals, peers and perspectives. This is a place where you are constantly learning from others and they are learning from you. Experience the Christian faith in all its dimensions and inviting you to be part of many churches, congregations, groups and activities that enable you to discover the beauty, truth and goodness of God.

This is how worship shapes your learning

The Seminary's weekly Word and Table chapel service is at the core of your campus life. You worship in a setting where students and professors serve side-by-side. Afterward, the fellowship continues as you share a meal in the Seminary Commons student lounge.

30 denominations from 5 continents represented

This is a campus where learning thrives

Welcoming, new and modern, the Ambrose campus has plenty of spaces for individual and group learning, connecting with professors and friends, and taking part in the many athletic, social and spiritual activities that are part of campus life.

This is true community

Ambrose Seminary is a unique, diverse on-campus learning community made richer because you are surrounded by people who share a desire to expand knowledge and thrive in an environment devoted to ministry.
