Why Regent University?

Regent University offered a unique perspective in undergraduate studies. Christ-centered leadership and biblically centered classes develop students professionally and personally. The campus is beautiful, and I soon found that my professors and my fellow students exuded enthusiasm and dedication to the Lord and their educational pursuits. Classmates prayed with me and for me; studying became a group effort towards excellence and not just another homework assignment.

Why Online Learning?

I was 21 when I started the online learning program at Regent University. I had the opportunity to dual-enroll in a local college while in high school, so my associates degree was partially complete when I graduated in 2002. I hit the ground running by working full time after graduating from high school, attending night classes to finish my associates degree. I guess I got used to the schedule, and when it came time to find a university to transfer to, I knew I'd want a flexible format that would allow me to continue in my professional endeavors.

Why A Business Degree?

My degree is in Organizational Leadership and Management. I chose this concentration because of the unique mix of business strategy and leadership development. In choosing a degree program I wanted one that would emphasize the "people" part of organizations and their strategic development. Some degree programs focus primarily on the financial and strategic side of business development, but Regent stressed the importance of the organization's people and the effectiveness of biblical leadership.

I wish I could be your sunshine

Until it rains
Your umbrella until the
Cold chases us inside
Your sweater until you were warm
To see the sunshine again
I wish I could give you
That fleeting moment
To keep in a honey jar to
Shelve for times devoid of
Feeling and wrapped in a second hand
Pushed to hourly swelling
To shorten the moments between distances
We wish were not so generous with our time
I wish I could box life's colors
Like crayons to carry with you to
Scribble on the walls of darkness and
Entire cans of paint that never fade
Spread with brushes that would become wet
With all of the promises of tomorrow
I wish I could hang a mirror on the wall for you
That becomes a window
Because looking inward becomes too painful
Entire walls of glass that overlook the
Promises of God's love for you
His green pastures of rest
Blue seas of victory and
The changing of the guard
Between the sunset and sun rise
I wish these intangibles could remind you
Without words to crowd their purposes
That He is there
And He's never leaving you...
