The students, staff and faculty of Regent University share a commitment to support one another and live out their Christian faith. The mission of the University encourages students to embrace and share their faith through chapel services, Bible study groups, and special events that are regularly hosted on campus.
Since the University is non-denominational, no one Christian tradition predominates. Indeed, many churches and faiths are represented by members of the Regent family, including Assemblies of God, Baptist, Catholic, Episcopalian, Lutheran, and Presbyterian, among others.
A defining characteristic of Regent Law is that each class is ten minutes longer than ABA requirements stipulate in order to begin with a period of devotion. Led by either students or faculty, this time of common prayer, teaching and worship affirms the relationship between students’ professional training and Christian commitment. Often faculty will use the devotion time to relate Biblical principles to the material covered in class.
Once a week Regent Law students, faculty, and staff come together for worship and a message that is tailored to the life of a Christian called to the study and practice of law. Each week is sponsored by a different student organization that provides lunch for a time of fellowship following the service.

The University employs a full-time chaplain who assists and supports all members of the University community. Additionally, each school at the University has designated student chaplains.
