Campus Ministries: A worship group leads worship during a chapel service at Regent University, Virginia Beach.

Campus Ministries

When you become a Regent student, you join more than an academic community. You become part of a spiritual family. Students, professors and staff come alongside each other, supporting, encouraging and challenging growth in our relationship with God. A diverse community of people from many denominations, cultures, backgrounds and callings comprises the Regent family, all with an intentional focus on our shared Christ-centered values. That’s what makes us strong as we strive toward excellence in our studies, our work and our service to others.

Whether you’re studying online or on campus, you will find many ways to participate in the spiritual community at Regent. We invite you to experience the presence of God at Regent as you dive in fully to worship, pray, study, serve and connect. Explore Campus Ministries opportunities.

Ascribe

Once a semester, students gather for Ascribe, a night of worship and testimony through the creative arts. This is a time for students to glorify the Lord with the talents He has given them whether that is dance, song, 2D art, spoken word, poetry or more. Through Ascribe, students have the opportunity to cultivate the talents the Lord has given them and bring glory to God through their creative worship.

Serve Teams are an opportunity to serve the Regent community through volunteering for Chapel and UnChapel services. Please click here for more information and to sign up.
