Reimagining theological education.

Are you a student looking to complement your current study program, or to prepare for future study?

Are you a pastor hungry for opportunities to sharpen your grasp of key biblical doctrines and the church's history?

Are you a Christian layperson who loves to read theology but sometimes feels the need for a guide through the bewildering landscape of the Christian tradition?

Are you a classical Christian educator seeking to lay a firm theological foundation for leading your own students into Christian wisdom?

Take a 10 week online Davenant Hall course for an expert-guided tour of the rich mines of Scripture, history, and Christian doctrine!

Now offering two degree programs in Classical Protestantism:

Certificate in Classical Protestantism (36 credits)

A one-year course of study well-suited to serve as a capstone gap year program for students who have completed an undergraduate degree and are considering seminary education or graduate study and want to lay a strong foundation of theological literacy.

M.Litt in Classical Protestantism (72 credits)

A two-year course of study to equip Christian secondary-school or adult education teachers, enable pastors and Christian leaders to round out their education, or to provide a launch-pad for graduate study in Theology or Philosophy.

Or, mix-and-match individual courses on a for-credit or auditing basis!

FLEXIBLE. AFFORDABLE. GOSPEL-CENTERED.

Building a new Christian republic of letters in a digital age.

OUR VISION

Davenant Hall is seeking to reimagine Christian education.

We combine the rich theological and moral vision of the Reformation with a self-conscious desire to create unique modern expressions of that Reformation's "Republic of Letters".

To that end, we advance and renew Christian wisdom for the digital age, harnessing the new powers of the internet to offer effective and flexible online instruction, and the old practices of in-person community and mentorship to seek wisdom together through discipleship retreats and residential intensives at our Davenant House property.

Taking these together, Davenant Hall allows students to engage the great tradition in order to mature and grow into whatever vocation God has given them.

This curriculum affords students the opportunity to work through texts with guides who can enable students to more deeply know God’s two books, and themselves, in a way that moves them toward the mastery of wisdom: the effective grasp of Word and world, and the ability to see all things in the radiance the eternal Logos whose light enlightens all men and who can be found by those who seek Him.
