A place...

to ask hard questions without expecting easy answers.

to wrestle with what it means to be a disciple of Christ today.

to recover the lost art of conversation — of hashing out important differences respectfully, yet earnestly.

for quiet reflection.

to grow closer to God and grow in understanding of His Word through worship, study, and conversation with other believers.

to experience the beauty of nature and the biodiversity of the southern Appalachians.


A place to grow.
Recovering Christian wisdom to renew the church and commonwealth.

Davenant House is not just a place to learn the right answers or the right ideas. It’s a place for reflection, for questioning, for conversation, for prayer—a place to connect with God, neighbor, and nature and be renewed for a life of faithful witness and service.

May 11-15 and May 26-30, 2020: Undergraduate Sojourn Weeks

Sojourn: Choosing the Wise Path as You Navigate God’s World

So many choices. Every young adult wonders what they’re supposed to do with their life. “What career should I pursue? Who should I marry/should I marry? Where should I live? What kind of person am I going to be?” The seemingly smaller questions are also really important and can be daunting. “What should I do today? How do I respond to this criticism? How am I going to pay for this? Should I do what this person is asking of me?” This week will provide you with some time-tested and biblically rooted tools to put to work in your own life as you seek to follow the path the Lord has called you to. Details and registration coming soon!

The two separate weeks in May will be geared for undergraduate college students. But Christian wisdom is needed by and applies to everyone! If you are a church group interested in bringing a group for this program, we would love to host you and the material will be tailored to the group you are bringing, whether a wide age range or a group that is older or younger than undergraduates. Please contact our director, Michael Hughes, for scheduling, group pricing, or more information at [email protected]
