What I love about Regent is that it’s a place for people who have questions about their ordinary lives. Not just academic theological questions, but questions about what it means to live the good life or be faithful. Not just a space for heady conversations but a place to wrestle with faith and a place where they can belong.” — Vivian Lee (MATS student)
