Equipping Christians to Serve

Our Story

Over nearly two hundred years, Acadia Divinity College has evolved in faith and changed with purpose. Our East Coast ‘flavour’ of Theology continues to prepare strong, compassionate leaders to serve communities around the globe. As the Faculty of Theology for Acadia University, ADC is a diverse, creative, and forward-thinking academic institution.

Local Hospitality, Global Reach

Nestled in the heart of the Annapolis Valley, Wolfville’s community is quaint, inviting, and loaded with charm. Visiting the downtown core is a weekly rite of passage for Acadia students and you’ll almost certainly see a familiar face. Hospitality is part of who we are – our community is a place where everyone feels at home.


Featured Program: Master of Divinity

The MDiv will set you on a path to equip you for ministry in today’s ever-evolving world. It will prepare you to serve in a mosaic of contexts including local churches, chaplaincy, mission fields, and more.


Equipping Christians to Serve

In a world that is rapidly changing, the gospel remains ever relevant. As we change in response to cultural, environmental, and social shifts, we don’t do so simply for the sake of change. We change with purpose. Whether from a distance or on site, let us equip you to make a difference for Christ.



Student Testimony

As a pastor studying part-time, I’m able to learn and apply new skills in real-time. God is teaching me more about my own walk with him and how to lead in healthy and informed ways.”

Sarah Cogswell, MDiv student
