Commissioning Ceremony Details

Date & Time: Friday, May 8, 2020, 8:30 a.m.

Congratulations! You have made it through your graduate studies; you have made it to graduation. We are excited that you have decided to join us for our virtual Commissioning ceremony.

The service that will be streamed on this page will prayerfully commission you to serve the world as a Christian leader in your chosen field. The schedule includes:

  • A welcome
  • An address from the Dean
  • Academic award recipients
  • Congratulatory remarks from our Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Gerson Moreno-Riaño
  • A commissioning address from our Founder and Chancellor, Dr. M.G. “Pat” Robertson
  • Closing and prayer

To commission someone is “to entrust, to give authority, to appoint or assign to a task or function” (Isaiah 61:1-3). After graduation you leave Regent University with training and preparation, to fulfill the call of God as a laborer in the great harvest (Matthew 9:37). Within the context of our graduation, commissioning is a sacred and holy time of consecration, reflection and prayer.

Graduates do not need to RSVP for the 2020 Commissioning ceremony.

If you have your regalia, please wear it and join us in celebrating you. For those who would like to order it, the Oak Hall website [] “ship to home” option was reactivated at 5 p.m. on April 23, 2020. Orders must be placed by May 20, 2020.

Commencement 2020 is scheduled for Saturday, May 9, 2020. In order to protect the health and well-being of our students and all in attendance, Regent University will move its Commencement ceremony to a virtual format. The ceremony will be streamed so that graduates, friends, and families can participate from all over the world.
