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 RegentAudio.com
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.Add our lectures to Your Calendar
