Formation of the Canadian Chinese School of Theology at Ambrose Seminary (CCSTAS)

In June 2009, a partnership agreement was signed between ACCTE, Ambrose University and CCACA to establish the Canadian Chinese School of Theology at Ambrose Seminary (CCSTAS) in Calgary.

CCSTAS is unique in a sense that it combines the best of both Eastern and Western approaches of seminary training, being sensitive to the Chinese Church's cultural traditions, language, its collective vision and mandate, and by following the example of Jesus Christ in training his disciples. CCSTAS in Calgary aims to train pastors and missionaries with spiritual fortitude, ministry skill sets, clear vision and a burden for souls in the twenty-first century. Furthermore, CCATAS meets the academic standard set by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) in USA and Canada.

With its inception in 2011, CCSTAS offers programs in Master of Divinity, Master of Christian Studies and Diploma in Christian Studies. The language of instruction is in Mandarin supplemented with Cantonese or English.

Starting from the academic year 2013, CCSTAS established an extension site in Edmonton offering the Diploma in Christian Studies taught in Cantonese.
