Dream Night with Ambrose Students Invitation!

THURSDAY FEBRUARY 2 || 6:00-8:30PM ||ROOM A2210

Inviting all Ambrose students to join for an inspiring night of sharing dreams and figuring out how to put them into action!

What are some dreams you might have?

  • Want to start a church plant?
  • Use a medical degree to help those in need?
  • Use business as missions in a foreign country?
  • Reach lost at-risk teens?

Whatever it is God is calling you to - we want to hear your dreams and inspire action!

Join us for pizza, opportunities to share and be encouraged about the ministry dreams God has placed in your heart to reach the least-reached, and be encouraged to pursue your dreams.

Here's a testimony from a student who came in previous years:

During the Dream Night  I felt The Lord ask me to commit myself to the dream that He had given me. Since then God has been so faithful in putting this dream into motion. I came to the event certain God was speaking to me, but a little uncertain about the specifics of this "dream”. At the event a leader encouraged me to press into the idea of a ministry that works with victims of Human Trafficking. The next day that very ministry began to unfold. I simply committed to the plans the Lord had, and asked that he would provide me with a team to come alongside. I am four years into directing an organization launched forward from this night, and am surrounded by a continually growing team. This is a testimony of God's faithfulness. God fulfills His promises. 

Please sign up herehttp://www.transformcma.ca/event/dream-night/. Attendance numbers are needed no later than January 26 for catering. See website link for further details.

See you there!

Hosted by the Western Canadian District of the Christian and Missionary Alliance.
