I am so excited to share the stories inside this newsletter with you. They are truly inspiring and are a testament to the transformative power of Jesus Christ that is alive and well at Regent University.
These stories—of scientists, student-athletes, and faithful supporters—share the common thread that scholarship based on the Christian faith is a powerful tool to change the world for the better.
As many of you know, in October 2021, I stepped down as host of The 700 Club to take an even more active role in the education of our 11,000-strong student body. That’s why I am delighted to tell you about a new initiative at Regent called the Chancellor’s Forum. I feel so privileged to connect with students in this synergistic format to share my thoughts on servant leadership based on my experiences in the ministry, broadcasting, business, and philanthropy.
The first session was held in early February when I spoke to an intimate group of 40 students from the School of Business & Leadership, in addition to 80 students and guests who participated virtually. After sharing my thoughts on Christian leadership in the business world and beyond, we had an engaging, interactive question and answer session.
The opportunity to address the questions of these future business leaders and converse with them in person provided further evidence to me that our mission to change the world through Christian leadership is on the right path.
I and our dedicated administrators, faculty and staff are more committed than ever to making Regent University the most influential Christian university in the world. With more than 150 areas of academic study, Regent students are uniquely poised to do that. I am confident we are closer than ever to achieving that goal with your continued prayers and support.
May God bless you!
