VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (July 10, 2023) – The Regent University Board of Trustees has named Gordon Robertson the Chancellor of Regent University, succeeding his father, Dr. M.G. “Pat” Robertson, who passed away on June 8, 2023. In addition to his new role as Chancellor of Regent University, Gordon Robertson will continue to serve as President and Chief Executive Officer of The Christian Broadcasting Network, Inc. and as President of Operation Blessing.

“We are thrilled to appoint Gordon Robertson as the Chancellor of Regent University,” said Phil Walker, Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Regent University. “He is uniquely equipped to carry on the mission and vision of Regent and the legacy of his father, Dr. Pat Robertson. Under Gordon’s proven leadership and expertise, Regent will continue to thrive and impact future generations.”

“I am deeply humbled and honored to accept the distinguished role of Chancellor at Regent University,” said Gordon Robertson. “Under the extraordinary leadership of my father, Regent has become one of the great Christian universities in the world, and – by God’s grace – we will continue to build upon its strong foundation with an unwavering commitment to excellence, innovation, and integrity. We will remain faithful to Regent’s founding principles and continuously advance the university’s mission of equipping Christian Leaders to Change the World.”

The son of Pat and Dede Robertson, Gordon graduated from Yale University in 1980 and earned his Juris Doctor degree from Washington and Lee University in 1984. He then practiced law in Norfolk, Virginia, for 10 years.

In 1994, Gordon had a profound encounter with the Lord and moved to the Philippines, where he established CBN Asia. The following year, he founded the Asian Center for Missions (ACM), dedicated to training and sending Asian missionaries throughout the world. ACM is now one of the largest missionary agencies in the Philippines with more than 2,000 graduates trained in cross-cultural missions.

In 1996, Gordon created CBN Asia’s flagship television show, The 700 Club Asia, which is now one of the longest-running Christian television shows in the Philippines and is distributed by satellite around the world. Also in 1996, CBN Asia started a humanitarian organization, Operation Blessing Philippines, which has been recognized as “NGO of the Year” by the Philippine government. Over the next three years, Gordon launched CBN centers in Indonesia, India, Hong Kong, Beijing and Thailand.
