Public Lectures

Our mandate is to educate the whole people of God—and that includes the Christian community of Vancouver and beyond. We offer free public lectures by our own world-class faculty, and by visiting scholars, teachers, and authors from around the world.

We host two regular lecture series—Summer Lectures and the Laing Lectures—as well as special events throughout the year.

Most of our lectures are recorded and available as audio downloads through

Summer Lectures

In the Spring and Summer Sessions, we host lectures every week to highlight the research of our regular faculty and our visiting summer lecturers. All lectures are in the Regent College Chapel unless otherwise noted. Our lectures tend to draw large crowds, so plan to arrive early for a good seat.

Spirit of Adoption: The Forgotten Gospel Treasure


With Krish Kandiah

Driven by the good intention of making the gospel known to as many people in as short a time as possible, the church has unwittingly communicated a reduced and partial gospel. In this fast moving, emotionally engaging, theologically rich lecture, Dr. Kandiah explores Paul's theology of adoption, demonstrating why it is a vital component of the gospel that is especially important in our current social context.

This lecture is part of our 2017 Summer Evening Public Lecture series. 

Krish is the Founding Director of Home for Good, a young charity seeking to make a real difference in the lives of vulnerable children. Together with his wife, Miriam, he co-authored a catalytic book “Home for Good” which blends the story of God and addresses challenges of our times. In recent months Krish’s efforts in the escalating refugee crisis have been significant in campaigning through Home for Good for securing homes for 3000 refugee children. Krish is Honorary Vice President and Chair of the Theological Panel of Tearfund. He has a passion for engaging with contemporary culture theologically and is a prolific writer and blogger. Krish has authored 10 books and his latest award winning publication "Paradoxology" explores why Christianity was never meant to be simple. Krish holds degrees in Chemistry, Missiology and Theology. His PhD is from Kings College London and he currently holds faculty positions at George Fox Seminary and Regents Park College, Oxford University.

Dr. Kandiah will be teaching the class "RefuJesus: Christ & the Displaced" from July 3–7, 2017 and "Luminous Christianity" from July 10–14, 2017 as part of our 2017 Summer Programs. Learn more at
