Regent has over 15 Life Groups on campus! Life Groups are small groups that build community among students and create an environment of love and accountability. Hope gives us a glimpse of what it is like to be a Life Group Leader while attending “Leadership Lab,” a monthly training session for leaders in Campus Ministries.
Regent has many clubs, groups and student organizations on campus. This video features Regent’s very own Dance Team! The Dance Team has performed at a few of Regent’s staple events, including the Christmas Ball and Chili Bowl.
Seize the moment out of your graduation day to celebrate the accomplishment of your dream. Proactively engage in a purposeful conversation with your dream and let your imagination expand into a realm of quantum faith. This is a representation of complete confidence in the gifts, talents, and skills that the Creator has blessed you with through Christ Jesus (Eph. 1:3). Celebrate the victory of your academic excellence, because you are a son, or daughter of the King who leads you triumphantly.
Imagine celebrating with your family and friends, and loved ones at Regent University’s commencement where there will be a victory song that plays in heavenly places on your behalf. You can rejoice, because you’ve established a foundation of education, an honor for even your children’s children to inherit. Read more
Just because I am an online student doesn’t mean I don’t have my own campus! This video takes you on a tour of the apartment complex my wife and I live in. There’s a neat golf course, outdoor pool and hot tub, business center and more. Let me show you around!
Regent University Chapel is a time when the entire Regent community comes together for an hour of worship. A special Gospel Fest concluded the February Chapel series on Black History Month. Here’s a quick video of the dancing, singing and fellowship from that special Chapel. It’s exciting to think that next year’s Gospel Fest will be in our brand new Chapel building!
“…it does require the supernatural grace of God to live twenty-four hours in every day as a saint, to go through drudgery as a disciple, to live an ordinary, unobserved, ignored existence as a disciple of Jesus.”

Twelve weeks into 2013.
How are those resolutions going? Perhaps at the cusp of the New Year, some of us were reviewing the year, regretting mistakes, re-thinking goals,and resolving to change. But why do we keep repeating the pattern every year?
We long to make some dramatic difference in our lives, checkbooks, children, spouses, bodies, homes, or whatever. Or at least, I do. I want that big “reveal” at the end of the year–or my lifetime–to show visible improvement, growth, and purpose. It’s taken me a long time to learn that life is not about the drama or applause.
Life is played out in the everyday moments, minutes, reactions, choices, and responses. Read more
My “braddah,” Jordan and I practiced and performed an original skit for the annual Regent’s Got Talent Show. In this video, I meet some of the other competitors and perform the skit live for the Regent community!
There were times along the education journey that the joy of graduation faded away;
The completion of projects, quizzes, discussion posts, and deadlines seemed overwhelming;
Filing for FAFSA returns was stressful because the returns were depressing;
If tuition increased higher, anxiety and fear slowed down the motivation.
One tries to seek council for external comfort for an internal meltdown.
This pressure shakes one’s identity, casting down their crown of righteous glory,
The feeling of voidance,
Obliteration of an untold story.
– Frederick Jones
College students experience the rigor of academic work often amid a series of unexpected life events. Those events are overwhelming, and cause you to become angry, upset, and frustrated about the whole situation. You are dedicating your energy, time away from your family, friends, and loved ones to set aside between 14 and 18 hours a week to complete assignments in school, while a voice speaks in the back of your mind saying, “Is it worth it? Does the professor even care that I have a life outside of school?”
At Regent University, some students feel the same way. Read more
One of the best things about going to school in Virginia Beach is that there is so much to do in the area! Students can stay on-campus and attend Regent events, or explore the local hot spots. In this video I do a bit of both! See some of the fun things I did in January.
As I took my seat at the start of Ancient Political Philosophy, Abby smiled and opened her mouth to say something. I expected her to comment on the book in my hand (I like to read on my way to class), but instead she made a brushing motion on her forehead and said, “You know you have—is that for—?”
“For Ash Wednesday? Yeah,” I said, realizing she was looking at the sooty mark on my forehead. Read more
