The Acadia Centre for Baptist and Anabaptist Studies (ACBAS) was established by Acadia Divinity College, in cooperation with the Vaughan Memorial Library of Acadia University, in April 1991. Its primary goal is to encourage and facilitate studies in the fields of Baptist and Anabaptist history and thought.
The Charles J. Taylor Centre for Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care was established by Acadia Divinity College in 2011. This Centre fosters and promotes clinical and theological excellence in the area of Pastoral Care through personal growth, the building of professional capacities and rigorous theological reflection. The Taylor Centre trains and prepares men and women for pastoral ministry in specialized forms, including hospital chaplaincy, military chaplaincy, prison chaplaincy, and a variety of other caring professions, for which care for the Spirit is of primary importance.
The Andrew D. MacRae Centre for Christian Faith and Culture was established by Acadia Divinity College in 2016. This Centre is ADC’s focus for helping students and the wider church engage with people and issues in meaningful, thoughtful, relevant, and transformative ways.
We are called to help students, alumni, congregations, and others in ministry to navigate Christian life and thought through the complexities of today’s world. Addressing the complicated issues that emerge from all directions requires knowledge, wisdom, engaged theological thinking, and skill in applying biblical principles to our contemporary culture.
