Mission Statement

The mission of Acadia Divinity College is to equip Christian leaders for full-time and volunteer ministry in Canada and the world.


The College Board of Trustees has approved the following objectives to enable us to fulfill our mission:

  1. To offer instruction in Biblical Studies, Church History, Systematic Theology, and Practical Theology that will be commensurate in level and difficulty with schools affiliated with the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada.
  2. To integrate the spiritual, academic, vocational, professional, and pastoral aspects of ministry, so that graduates may contribute effectively to the furtherance of the Christian gospel and the reign of God on earth.
  3. To contribute to, and be in partnership with, the whole Church of Jesus Christ at the local, national, and global levels.
  4. To provide opportunities for continuing enhancement of theological and professional competence in ministry in order to facilitate life-long learning for those who hold first theological degrees.
