CCTA Sponsored Events
CCTA seeks to foster an atmosphere and culture at Regent University that promotes the training of kingdom leaders who are people of both thought and action. As Christian leaders who desire to change the world, We must be knowledgeable of God's Word, willing to seek the wisdom of the Holy Spirit and motivated to demonstrate our faith through actions that will tangibly spread His love around the world. The CCTA sponsors several events a year that help to strengthen the integration of faith and learning in teaching, scholarship and service, as well as the spiritual vitality among the student body, faculty and staff.
