Faculty & Staff

IMG_5389-002The faculty and staff at AMBEX are selected on the basis of their spiritual maturity (1 Timothy 3), life experience and gift of teaching. They meet regional accreditation standards. More than lectures, AMBEX instructors are ministers at heart—concerned with each student’s life and sole matters. AMBEX associates are humble servants, committed and accountable to the Word of God and numerous overseers.

Fully qualified professors come from Christian colleges, seminaries and like-minded churches in the U.S. Others with similar qualifications have lived and served in Europe for many years as English and German speaking pastors, missionaries, and businessmen. They bring a rich European perspective to an AMBEX education and disciplinary process.

Faculty Requirements and Qualifications:

  • Master’s Degree or higher in teaching/subject area. (80% have PhD’s)
  • Strong résumé—education, experience, references, etc.
  • Gifted teaching skills
  • Spiritual leaders (1 Timothy 3, Titus 2)

Staff members include a Director, Student Life Coordinator, Host Nation Assistants, Cleaning and Maintenance personnel. All share the same vision and pursuit for AMBEX.
