Make Your End-of-Year Gift
The Davenant Institute is engaged in a great project of translation,
finding those who have immersed themselves in the rich legacy of Protestant wisdom and helping them to speak it afresh in a form that Christian students, pastors, and leaders can understand and apply today. The gap we seek to bridge is sometimes dizzyingly wide, and widened still further by the mutual suspicion that pastors and scholars can have for one another.
But it is not unbridgeable.
In 2018 we hope to:
- Build new online courses, in partnership with BibleMesh, in theology, ethics, and Latin, for church leaders and students.
- Produce accessible guides to key texts and themes in magisterial Protestant theology and ethics
- Hire new Teaching Fellows to expand our summer programs in Protestant Wisdom at Davenant House and elsewhere
- Establish strong regional hubs across North America and Great Britain for conversation, collaboration, and mentorship.
- Publish and translate classic works on timely topics from great Protestant writers
Your year-end gift is essential to helping us achieve our mission of renewing Christian wisdom for the contemporary church. Please consider giving at whatever level you are able.
You are a crucial part of the renewal of Christian wisdom.
We don’t have a big budget—or even a medium-sized budget. We don’t have a bunch of staff or buildings. What we have, like the Reformers in fact, is a network of friends, friends deeply committed to pooling their intellectual resources and using them to build up the church. We believe that the most lasting transformation can be achieved by establishing communities of conversation in which those dedicated to this task can compare notes and encourage one another, and we’ve been amazed to see what God has done through such humble enterprises.
As we come to the end of 2017, we ask you to consider contributing to our end-of-year funding drive, or signing up as a regular monthly donor, so that we can reach more students and leaders with this renewal of Christian wisdom.
The Davenant Trust is a registered 501(c)3 organization. All your gifts are tax-deductible.
