Reporter: REGENT

UNIVERSITY STUDENTS HAVE A

LEGACY THAT INSPIRES, AND

ARE WELL-EQUIPPED TO BUILD A

BRIGHT FUTURE.

THE PLANS ARE BEING DRAWN

AND WILL BE COMPLETED IN THE

NEXT FEW DAYS.

AND ALL OF US ARE GOING TO

MERGE OUR EFFORTS AND OUR

HEARTS AND OUR PRAYERS INTO

SEEING THESE SCHOOLS AND

THIS UNIVERSITY GO FORWARD

FOR THE GLORY OF GOD.

HE HAS CALLED US TO

EXCELLENCE.

HE HAS CALLED US TO SHOW

FORTH THE EXCELLENCY OF THE

KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST.

WE ARE GOING TO

ESTABLISH, STARTING IN 1982,

A BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION'S

BIBLICAL STUDY.

THE VISION AND THE

PURPOSE THAT HAS BEEN SET

FORTH BY THE LEADERS,

FACULTY, STUDENTS, AND THE

SUPPORTERS OF THIS

INSTITUTION WE ARE

BUILDING.

WE ARE BUILDING A BETTER

WORLD AND A BETTER NATION.

MAY GOD BLESS THIS

UNIVERSITY.

WE'RE SO IMPRESSED WITH

THE QUALITY OF THE FACULTY.

WE DEDICATE THIS FILMING

AS A PLACE OF TRUTH, A PLACE

OF LIGHT, A PLACE OF

ENRICHMENT, A PLACE OF

LEARNING.

THE STUDENT WRITES HIS OR

HER OWN SCRIPTS AND WE

PRODUCE THEM AND GET THEM

OUT.

SEVERAL OF THEM HAVE WON

NATIONAL STUDENT ACADEMY

AWARDS.

TURTLE RACES IS THE FILM

THAT WON THE STUDENT ACADEMY

AWARD.

[APPLAUSE]

THIS COULD NOT HAVE GONE

ANY BETTER, I THINK NOT ONLY

FOR REGENT UNIVERSITY, BUT

FOR BOTH SIDES OF THIS

DEBATE TO COME TO THIS

CAMPUS AT THIS PARTICULAR

TIME OF THE 25th

ANNIVERSARY, AND THIS TYPE

OF EVENT.

THIS IS AN HISTORIC EVENT.

THE IDEA OF A COMPLETELY

INTERDENOM NATIONAL SCHOOL

-- INTERDENOMINATIONAL

SCHOOL OF SPIRITUAL

STUDIES.

Pat: WE HAVE SEEN OUR

GRADUATES GO INTO KEY

POSITIONS.

WE HAVE MAYBE 150 STUDENTS

FROM OTHER COUNTRIES HERE.

IT HAS BECOME AN

INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY.

WE ASPIRE TO RAISE UP A

GENERATION OF LEADERS WHO

WILL CHOOSE CALLING OVER

CAREER.

I SEE THESE NUMBERS, AND

THEY ARE PRIME NUMBERS.

Pat: WE THANK YOU FOR

THIS MOMENT IN THE HISTORY

OF REGENT UNIVERSITY, FOR

THIS GLORIOUS CHAPEL, WHICH

WILL HAVE THIS CROWNING

TOUCH, THE CROSS, ADDED TO

THE TOP OF THIS BEAUTIFUL

STEEPLE.

I WAKE UP EVERY MORNING

AND I WONDER TO MYSELF, HOW

IN THE WORLD

DID

I GET

BLESSED TO HAVE SUCH A JOB.

WE'VE GOT A VERY, VERY

DIVERSE GROUP OF STUDENTS,

IN PART REFLECTING THE FACT

WE'VE GOT A DIVERSE

FACULTY.

THE WORLD IS SHRINKING,

ASIA, LATIN-AMERICA, AND I

THINK WE'RE SEEING MORE AND

MORE STUDENTS COMING TO US

FROM THOSE PARTS OF THE

WORLD AS WELL.

I'M THRILLED ABOUT BEING

ABLE TO BE A PART OF THAT.

Pat: HE WHO CAUSES

EVERYTHING TO BE WILL DIRECT

YOUR PATHS.

HE'LL LEAD YOU STEP BY STEP

BY STEP BY STEP.

HERE AT REGENT, THE

SCHOOL OF DIVINITY, THE LIFE

OF THE SPIRIT AND THE LIFE

OF THE MIND ARE NOT

ANTAGONISTIC TO EACH OTHER.

THEY'RE NOT OPPOSITES, BUT

THEIR INTERTWINED, HEADS,

HANDS, AND HEARTS.
