About Rev. Dr. Ambrose Carroll

The Rev. Dr. Ambrose Carroll, Sr., senior pastor at Renewal Worship Center Oakland, CA, is one of the nation’s premiere Practical Theologians. After graduating from Oakland High School in 1987, Ambrose went on to do his undergraduate work at Florida Memorial College in Miami, FL. He further received a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) from Morehouse School of Religion in Atlanta, GA, a Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) from United Theological Seminary in Dayton Ohio, and a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) from Golden Gate University in San Francisco, CA.

Dr. Carroll was licensed to the Gospel ministry at Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church in 1989 and ordained at the Beth Eden Baptist Church in 1994. He has served as the Youth and Young Adult Pastor of Third Baptist Church in San Francisco, Interim Pastor of the Rising Star Baptist Church of Oakland, Senior Pastor of the St. Paul Tabernacle Baptist Church of San Francisco, Senior Pastor of the New Hope Baptist Church of Denver, Co. and the Founding Pastor of the Renewal Worship Center Christian Church of Denver, CO. At the time, Renewal Worship Center was one of the first foundationally environmentally friendly “Green” Churches in the country. Dr. Carroll combined theology with ecology and challenged the church universal to embrace its mantle of creation care. This church was listed in the May edition of Fast Company Magazine and on CNN as one of the most innovative business ideas of 2011, stating, “Carroll has taken faith-based initiatives to a new level with what you might call initiative-focused faith. His inner-city church has an explicitly environmental emphasis and an outreach arm that offers green-job training and placement.”
