Regent University Chapel & Divinity School


Clancy & Theys Construction Company attributed construction management to the Georgian architecture of Regent University Chapel & Divinity School.

Reflecting the classic Georgian architecture of the campus, this distinctive physical structure is a central place of connectivity for Regent’s alumni, students, faculty and staff, both today and for future generations. The Chapel provides a pulpit for ministerial students to gain practical experience while completing their studies at the School of Divinity. Inspired by St. Martin-in-the-Fields—a London church with medieval roots that represents, for many, the archetypal church design—the building features a 1,000-seat sanctuary to comfortably house gatherings for worship and other events. As a venue for convocations, commencements, weddings and baptisms, as well as for individual reflection and prayer, the Chapel is a noteworthy location on Regent University’s campus.  The chapel was also built to be modified to serve as TV studio. It includes full Audio-Visual controls and stage lighting.

Regent University’s School of Divinity is a three-story structure with different purposes designed into the building for each level. The ground floor has a welcome center for the campus and offices for Admittance and other school functions, the second floor has classrooms and study spaces, and the third floor has classrooms and teacher offices. Connected to the Chapel by a covered brick colonnade walkway, the Divinity School provides ample, much-needed space for the school’s growing enrollment.
