In the middle of a busy semester, the Regent University community to set aside a week of worship. During the week of Nov. 7-11, students, faculty and staff participated in a number of special chapel services, worship concerts and service projects designed to refocus the hearts of the campus. The week
was devoted to five different
aspects of worship— repentance, service, consecration, prayer and
This campus-wide effort was officially announced with a presidential proclamation signed by Regent president, Dr. Carlos Campo earlier in the semester. "Before any other single thing we should put God first and take time to worship Him for all He has done," he said. "Our hearts are filled with unrestrained love for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as together we purpose these special days to lift up His holy name."
The Global Week of Worship is designed to help students, faculty and staff refocus on Jesus and reflect on the goodness of God.
"When I saw the leadership of Regent University willing to stand publicly and repent from our sins as an organization, when hundreds came to the Main Theatre to set themselves apart for God in true consecration, when nearly 200 students showed up in the middle of the night to express their vocal devotion to God in worship; I knew I had witnessed something rare," said Dr. Richard Kidd, director of Campus Ministries.
"The Week of Worship gave each of us permission to stop and savor the very reason we exist as a school. I can't help but smile remembering the great variety of ways my friends and colleagues here at Regent used to celebrate Jesus. I can't wait to see what 2012 and our 2nd annual Week of Worship will bring!"
