Meet Your Ambassadors

Hi! My name is Rafael. I'm a first year Biology student here at Ambrose. I love getting to know new people so if you ever see me, feel free to say hi, or ask any questions, I'm always happy to chat.

Hey! My name is Ian Benham and I am in the behavioural science program this year at Ambrose. One of the things I like doing in my free time is playing the bagpipes, I also enjoy skateboarding and watching good movies! I’m so excited to be spending my first year here at Ambrose!

Hello! My name is Chantelle, I am currently on my third year of Intercultural Ministry. I spent the summer working as a Summer Enrolment Student for Ambrose, and this will be my second year on the SRA Team! I'm excited to see what the new school year brings. 

Hey! My name is Sydney Thiessen, and I am in my third year of church ministry. I am from a small Mennonite community just north of Saskatoon so moving to a big city like Calgary was quite a change! I heard of Ambrose from an alumnus and I was always so excited to make my big move to the big mountains. Walking alongside the community in residence the last two years was such an amazing experience and I would not trade it for the world. My love for God has grown a lot and my appreciation for a close community is very important. If you find me after hours, I will most likely be watching Netflix, finding a new place to eat, or shopping too much. I love meeting new people and hearing another story about how Ambrose came in their future plans! Hope to have an amazing year alongside my great coworkers!

Hi, my name is Joseph. I am a seminary student in my fifth and final semester. I love building community and helping people. Some of my friends say I have the “fix it” syndrome because I believe I can help everybody. If you need any information about anything around, let’s chat and if I don’t know the answer right away, I will find it!

Ethne Photo

Hello! My name is Ethne, and I'm in my first year of Behavioural Science here at Ambrose. I have a passion for dance, and I feel so blessed to be able to pursue it as a minor at Ambrose. I'm so happy I chose to go to Ambrose because being able to study a program that interests me in a small, faith-based environment has already done so much for my personal growth, and definitely will do more in the years to come. In my free time I love to dance, read, and play with my dog. I also love to spend my summers away at camp! It really is my happy place. I also love meeting new people and making new friends, so I'm always available to chat or say hi!
