“I know I've arrived where I am because of the experience at Regent. Anything that we did in class, the feasibility study, the business plan, it all came back to the ministry aspect that I always had in my heart to help orphans and vulnerable children.”

Nataliya Khom’yak, MBA, 2004 Leader, Orphan's Promise

“A dean from another university knew the journey of my life was in the intersection between ministry and the marketplace. He said to me, ‘You need Regent University’s Doctor of Strategic Leadership program.’ And how right he was.”

Chris Holdorf, DSL, 2019 Executive Director, Global Water Center; Adjunct Professor, Charleston Southern University; Former CEO, National Christian Foundation

“God is setting up students with an incredible program at Regent, under the guidance of outstanding professors. I was confident that I would be able to do great things with my degree, but now as I begin to read the qualifications of jobs in my field, they match what I’ve learned perfectly. I believe I can do just about anything with my Regent degree.”

Terri Hannibal, DSL '22

“Regent opened up so many opportunities for further training and further education.”

Melanie Mosbarger, M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, 2016

“I knew Regent was a Christian university, but I wasn’t expecting the love of Christ to be so evident.”

Jonatas DaSilva, B.A., 2015 Cinema/TV
