Psychology Students

Johnny Weixler

Johnny Weixler, 18
Myerstown, PA

While Johnny Weixler plans on completing his Doctorate of Psychology and becoming a clinical psychologist, his main motivation for choosing Regent University was to acquire a deeper understanding of the human mind and heart. He found that Regent offered the best combination of Christian spiritual direction and psychology training.

“I believe it is important for Christ-followers to help shape our culture…by bringing Jesus to the center of the philosophy of post-modern psychology.”

In Pennsylvania, Johnny works with Onfire Youth Ministries, through which he encounters many kids that have come from difficult backgrounds. Johnny has a passion for reaching these young people and his psychology degree from Regent is equipping him for broader, more insightful impact.

“Jesus hangs out with these sorts of kids. We're just following his lead. And He is leading!”

Cindy Loyd

Cindy Loyd, 39
Zion, IL

Cindy has always been a good student, enthusiastic about learning, but was disheartened by a lack of purpose in the material offered her by secular institutions.

“Why study anything if we cannot openly acknowledge the Creator of everything? At Regent University, I finally feel I have found direction and purpose.”

Cindy wants to earn her bachelor's and master's degrees in Psychology.  While still not sure what is in store for her beyond her schooling, she enjoys exploring the many avenues of psychology with Regent while providing home daycare services for young families.
