Commissioning Service


Since 1962, our Commissioning Service has been held for graduating students and is one of the spiritual high points of the school year. It’s our way of sending off the leaving students with love and prayerful support. The departing students are commissioned to fulfill their ministry in Christ’s Church.

1:00pm – 3:00pm – Open House at Acadia Divinity College 

Come visit us! Say hello to staff & faculty, tour the building, and enjoy refreshments with our community. Open to all, no registration required. 

4:30pm – 6:30pm – Commissioning Supper at Wheelock Dining Hall 

Before the Commissioning Service, we gather to eat together and to celebrate as a community. ADC friends, and Graduands and their guests will need to register to attend. 

Registration coming soon. 

Doors open at 4:30pm for a 5:00pm start. 

Please note: The Supper will be held on the second floor of the building. An elevator is available near the main (east) entrance of the building. Free parking will be available in the parking lot directly adjacent to the Dining Hall. 

7:30pm – Commissioning Service @ Wolfville Baptist Church & Online

Each year during Convocation weekend, Acadia Divinity College recognizes its students completing programs during its annual ADC Commissioning. With their family and friends watching, along with ADC staff and the greater College community, the ADC Faculty send out the students with prayer and blessing.

The Service will take place on-site at Wolfville Baptist Church and will also be live-streamed right here on this event page. No registration required. 

There will refreshments and time for photos following the service.

Please Note: There is limited free parking at the church.
