A Community Gathered
From August 11-13, 2022, the Canadian Baptists of Atlantic Canada gathered at Acadia University for Oasis. It was a joyous gathering as we celebrated our shared mission together as a denominational family.
On Thursday evening, Acadia Divinity College shared an update on the last 12 months that summarized our community impact, exciting new initiatives, and the progress we’ve made on our strategic priorities.
Watch the presentation below and be sure to read the ADC Annual 2021-2022 Impact Report.
Acadia Divinity College Presentation
Our House is Your House
As part of the Oasis celebrations, ADC hosted an Open House. For many in our community, this was the first time they had seen the building since the renovations in 2019! We loved welcoming alumni, friends, students, and supporters into the College to meet staff and faculty, and to tour the updated facilities.
Friends & Alumni Supper
At long last, we were able to gather once again for our Friends & Alumni supper on the lawn right outside our front doors. The sun was shining, and the atmosphere was joyful and bright as we enjoyed a delicious meal provided by Acadia’s Flannel Food Truck.
After supper, we honoured the 2022 recipient of our Alumni Distinguished Service Award, Rev. Dr. Frank Guinta Jr. (’75).
Established in 1995, the Award honours members of the Alumni of the Acadia University School of Theology and/or Acadia Divinity College whose gifts for ministry have contributed significantly to the Christian Church in Canada or throughout the world.
Frank was presented the award in recognition of his faithful service and lifelong commitment to building the body of Christ through cooperation and mentoring.
“I want to spend my life embracing others,” he said in his remarks. “We are living in a very difficult world. If this honour means anything to me, it’s a stimulus to move into ensuring that I’m embracing others.”
