If I could have a one-on-one conversation with you, I would want to know the narrative of your calling and the dream that God has put in you for His kingdom advancement. Only then would I ask you how you think our school can help bring that to pass for you and through you. We believe that you are fearfully and wonderfully made according to Psalm 139. That requires us to know your design, desires, dreams and sense of destiny in order to serve you well.

I know for certain that our faculty care about you as much as they educate you. Their success is your success. As a multi-denominational divinity school, we stand apart from other seminaries because of the strength and diversity of our distinguished faculty and students who come from many church families and traditions.

Our curriculum is biblically based, Christ-centered and prioritizes the renewing work of the Holy Spirit. We have forged new paths in providing accredited nontraditional ministry education program formats that allow our students to pursue their degree while remaining in their ministry context. Our graduates are at work passionately around the world ministering in churches, the marketplace, the public square and other domains.

The Regent University School of Divinity will prepare you for a multi-ethnic, multicultural and multigenerational ministry. Here, you will experience academic excellence that reflects the mind of Christ, and enjoy learning best practices to help you serve with the heart of the Father.

At the heart of the School of Divinity is a distinguished faculty and talented staff devoted to glorifying Jesus Christ through their service to you. Our faculty includes both scholars and practitioners — leaders experienced in the understanding of Scripture and its application to effective ministry. As a prospective or current student, you will find our staff ready to assist you with the application process, degree planning or any of the particulars related to graduation. We look forward to serving you.
