Your Generosity Is Forging Servant-Leaders
Who Will Change the World

After graduating from high school, Sean Connor (LAW ’23) accepted an offer to attend a small, secular university where he hoped to follow his dream of continuing his all-state football career. 

But it didn’t take long for Sean to realize the school’s environment would never allow him to excel. With no biblical foundation, it also meant the school couldn’t prepare him to become the Christian leader he wanted to be.

“Recognizing that I really wanted to learn from a Judeo-Christian perspective was the turning point,” Sean says. “Regent University has taught me the importance of excellence, integrity and commitment to Christian principles in an increasingly secular world.”

Within days of leaving that university, Sean applied, was accepted and began attending classes at Regent. Thanks to donors like you, he received a scholarship, and, as the son of a Regent alumnus, a Legacy Grant.

Your generosity empowered Sean to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2022. That same year, he began his professional career by working for Regent as a student advisor and financial-aid counselor.

Also in 2022, Sean married Alexis, his high-school sweetheart. She too is a Regent student (CAS ’25), studying to receive her associate degree in business.

“I want to thank the donors who make my Regent education possible,” Alexis explains. “You’re helping me grow spiritually and academically as I prepare to serve God and His people as an entrepreneur.”

As a full-time employee, Sean has continued his studies and is on track to receive a Master of Arts in Financial Planning and Law in May 2024.

“Through your generosity,” he insists, “I’m now fully equipped to become an effective Christian leader, husband and believer who will bring God glory in everything I do.”
