Our Support Makes a Difference

At Regent, you'll find the guidance and support you need to answer your calling and achieve your academic, professional and spiritual goals.

Mentorship: In the Classroom and Beyond

Our distinguished professors share a role in your learning and serve as shepherds in your continued success. Illustrations of their guidance and mentorship can be found at The Cornerstone, the official faculty blog of our university and source of inspiration for Christian students and leaders like Dr. Corné Bekker, Professor of Biblical and Ecclesial Leadership in Regent University's School of Business & Leadership. The following excerpt reflects just a glimpse of his and other faculty's insights.

"Christian leaders are marked by a different set of behavioral values and leadership measurements than the world. True leadership is not measured by the mere effects of our activities to lead, it is ultimately judged by our intentions to obey God's Word … I am increasingly persuaded that an authentic Christian leadership can only be formed by turning our eyes once again to the example of Jesus. Only when we have what the Apostle Paul called 'this attitude of Christ,' then our leadership will be marked by self-emptying, servanthood, humaneness, humility and obedience. Nothing less would be Christian leadership that can change our world."

Here I am during my 2009 Phi Theta Kappa Fall Leadership Conference. We were toward the end of the day, after spending about six hours outside pulling weeds at a special needs camp to get it ready for the upcoming campers. This was definitely a life-changing day for me.

I volunteer for a nonprofit organization that goes out into the streets and brings basic toiletries and bag lunches to the homeless. I don't think it's just about providing the homeless with food — it's about human interaction. I'm changing the world by feeding one homeless person at a time.
