Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the Oasis registration?
In University Hall lobby. Registration opens at 9am. Not sure where that is? #15 on the map – http://oasis.baptist-atlantic.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Acadia-Map-Oasis-2018.jpg

Oasis Shuttle – walking up and down the hill at Acadia can be difficult for some. So we’ve booked an Acadia U van as a shuttle to help with that. http://oasis.baptist-atlantic.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Oasis-shuttle-notice-web.pdf

Parking – We have arranged free parking on campus during Oasis (well not really free; let’s just say it’s included in your registration). Any lot on the map designated for parking that’s not metered or handicap or for motorcycles, you can park there. Metered spaces are free after 5pm and on Saturdays. http://oasis.baptist-atlantic.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Acadia-Map-Oasis-2018.jpg

Meals in Dining Hall – if you’ve registered for meals in the dining hall, please note that they are open for 1 hour – Breakfast: 8-9am; Lunch: 12-1pm; Supper: 5-6pm.
*We’ve been advised that the air conditioning is broken in the dining hall and won’t be fixed before Oasis. They will have windows open and apologize for the inconvenience.

Campus Map – The campus map will help you find your way around Acadia U. A copy of this map is on your welcome booklet you’ll pick up when you arrive. http://oasis.baptist-atlantic.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Acadia-Map-Oasis-2018.jpg

Oasis App – Our CBAC app will have all Oasis details on it. If you don’t have it, here’s how you get it (and don’t forget to allow notifications!):

Offering – we’ll be taking up three offerings during Oasis (Thursday evening, Friday evening, Saturday afternoon). Our registration fees don’t normally cover Oasis expenses. We rely on your generosity to make sure this event breaks even. This year, we are committing at least $5000 from our offerings that will go to a specific project/ministry around our three priorities – 65 new congregations, 300 mission edge churches and 75 emerging leaders. Here’s how you can give: http://oasis.baptist-atlantic.ca/give-now/

Also, all Oasis 2018 videos will be made available to all CBAC churches and pastors via streaming or download. You’re encouraged to use these as ways to communicate with your church about our three priorities and who the CBAC is.
