Evangelism and Mission

Many churches are seeking ways to bring renewal and growth to their congregations. At Acadia Divinity College, we prepare you with the skills to lead real change in established churches and to engage those outside the church. You will have the opportunity to visit churches, observe ministries, and engage with pastors who are leading change in their communities. Our focus on building bridges between the gospel and culture in our diverse society is a unique quality of an ADC education.
