For many Christians, “Monday Blues” is more than an
unpleasant feeling. It’s a deep disconnect between their Sunday
church life, and Monday-Friday work life. So what’s a pastor
to do? How can pastors and leaders equip people in their
congregations for their God-given vocation, ministry, and work
in the world?
Gain the skills and confidence to help members of your
congregation put the week—and their souls—back together
again. Develop an integrative way of thinking about faith and
work rooted in the biblical narrative. Learn from practitioners,
pastors, and theologians how to help Christians live thoroughly
integrated lives in the workplace, in the home, and in the church.
Registration opens February 24, 2016. Early bird rates are in effect until March 14, 2016.
Savour the invitation that God extends to each person to quiet your heart in order to know the Lord better.
This 5-day course will help you see how the story of Scripture is relevant to all of life: our jobs, our responsibilities, our relationships.
Join us as we learn to develop “institutional intelligence”: recognizing and cultivating institutions that work.
Interested in the postmodern architecture of Vancouver? Join UBC geographer David Ley for a guided urban tour this Saturday.
Spend time with Jesus through guided meditation, silence, and prayer so that you can go forth in greater joy and peace.
Chapel is foundational to our life at Regent College and services are held regularly throughout Summer Programs. Many students find that the mingling of testimony and praise, exposition and intercession creates an atmosphere of rich spiritual vitality.
Our catering team prepares delicious dishes every Monday and Thursday from May to July at a cost of $5. This a wonderful opportunity to share a meal with classmates and professors.
Connect with Faculty
Each week throughout Summer Programs, we take a break from the classrooms to spend a little time getting to know the faculty through coffee and dialogue events, panel discussions, and other informal talks.
Our evening public lectures are a unique opportunity to hear from our regular faculty members and our visiting lecturers from around the world. The lectures take place every Monday and Wednesday at 7:30 pm in the Chapel. The full schedule will be available in early February.
Located at the entrance to the Bookstore, this Regent alumnus-owned coffee bar
offers a fine selection of espresso drinks and teas, as well as various
snack and lunch menu items. The daily soup is a tasty alternative when
lunch is not served.
Space and Place
One of the great gifts of Regent College is the beautiful John Richard Allison Library
located on the lower level. Leather chairs and well-equipped study
carrels are woven in and through the stacks and original works of art,
all well lit by generous skylights. Once you have registered and paid
course fees, you are eligible for a free Allison Library card, valid for
one year from the day of membership request.
Regent's art gallery is a quiet respite from the bustle
of the atrium while Summer Programs are in session. The gallery showcases the work of an ever-expanding roster of local and international artists who are not afraid to address questions of faith in their art.
The Regent Bookstore
is considered by most Regent students to be the area of greatest
temptation at Regent College; it carries one of the most extensive
selection of books of any theological bookstore in North America.
Regent Audio offers CDs and DVDs of faculty lectures and an
audio selection of various Regent courses. Be sure to leave space in
your suitcase to bring home the treasures you find here!
