Regent's audiovisual systems need a lot of help.
Thanks to a generous matching grant from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, your gift goes twice as far to fix them.
Imagine walking into Regent’s chapel for a lecture and knowing you'll be able to hear and see everything you came to hear and see … right away. No fumbling around with microphones. No emergency adjustments to the projection system. Imagine sitting in the back row, and hearing every word with crystal clarity.
Imagine calling a friend in Calgary right after the lecture. She’s been watching a live-stream of the lecture with a few members of her small group. You chat for a few minutes about how much you learned, the great video the speaker showed, and the Q&A session—that student in the second row was so eager to get his question in, he was almost stumbling over his words.
When you get home that night you start wondering if the speaker has given any other lectures at Regent. You check the Regent Audio app on your phone, and—yes! Not only did she speak at a recent conference, she taught a week-long course last summer. You download the conference lecture to listen to on your way to work, and save the course videos to watch later.
A few days later, you remember that your pastor had wanted to go to that lecture, but had a scheduling conflict. You pull up the video on Regent’s website and send him the link before you forget.
After church on Sunday, you find yourself chatting with a Regent student. You ask him how classes are going, and he tells you about the guest speaker in his World Christianity course, a Kenyan theologian who called in from African International University. Next week, he adds, they’re going to talk to a pastor in Costa Rica—apparently his professor is putting that new video-conference room to good use. The excited light in the student’s eyes makes you smile. You think to yourself, “It’s so nice when things just work!”
Most of this isn't currently possible. But, with your help,
it could be.
Your gift to this project will help Regent replace outdated audiovisual equipment, invest in audio and video recording technology, develop a Regent Audio app, install a video-conferencing system, and more.
That means you get to help:
- improve student and faculty experience,
- bring more of Regent to the world,
- make it easier to access the content you love,
- open new avenues for exploration and dialogue.
