Contributing Writer

Dr. Bruce C. Swaffield began teaching graduate studies at Regent University School of Communication & the Arts in August 2003 after an extensive career in newspaper and magazine-writing. He previously taught higher education at Roanoke College and Malone College. Swaffield retired in 2013, but continued teaching as an adjunct professor for Regent University until his death on August 17, 2016.

Swaffield was known for his contagious love of Christ, his enthusiasm for his students, and his love of the Toy Story character, Buzz Lightyear. His daily devotional website, “Devotions for Life: New Ideas from Old Ways,” was favored among Regent’s community. He diligently wrote devotions on his site every day for more than 10 years.
