About us

Davenant Hall advances and renews Christian wisdom for the digital age. Launched in 2019, our classes allow students to work through classic texts alongside expert guides, developing a firm grasp of God’s Word and his world grounded in the classical Protestant tradition. We offer affordable 10-week courses in the treasures of Scripture, Christian doctrine, and the rich intellectual tradition through which they have flowed down over the centuries–even to the present day.

Three degree programs in


Classes are held over Zoom for 2 hours each week. Students can audit, enroll in our Certificate or M.Litt degree programs, or mix-and-match courses on a for-credit or auditing basis.

“Davenant Hall gave me the historic foundation I’d always felt I needed but never could find.”

Adam, M.Litt Student

“As a stay-at-home mother of two young children, I didn’t think I had the time or resources to pursue quality theological education. The ability to audit courses through Davenant Hall has offered the depth of study and scholarship I crave, yet with the flexibility and affordability for all seasons of life.”

Kelsey Gentry, Mom and Lay Leader

“I learned how to read the Bible better, and made a spiritual connection with other believers around the world who want to do the same. It’s something you can do from your home, the instruction is excellent, and it’s affordable. It’s so much better a use of time and technology than many other things we can choose. Anyone with a heart to learn and decent reading skills will benefit!”

Michelle (IL), Layperson

“I’m currently in my fifth Davenant Hall course – that alone should say something! The courses complement what I get at church, and enhance my contributions to church life. It’s almost unbelievable to me that I get access to these Teaching Fellows – the value for what I pay is unfathomable. I cannot foresee a time when I won’t be enrolled at Davenant Hall.”

Sunni (LA), Research Scientist

“I’m absolutely delighted that I made the decision to study at Davenant Hall. Each week, I’m guided toward the most influential theologians and philosophers in the Christian tradition, and supported to understand them by subject experts from around the globe. The fact that I can do this in a way that is both flexible and affordable makes Davenant Hall truly unique.”

Davenant Distinctives

A New Republic
of Letters

Here at Davenant Hall, we are seeking to re-imagine the medieval university and the early modern republic of letters for the digital age. By harnessing the new powers of the internet to offer effective and flexible online instruction, and the old practices of in-person fellowship and mentorship to seek wisdom together in community, we are building an army of friends to take on the challenges of the twenty-first century.

OUR Instructors


At Davenant Hall, our expert faculty members convene classes on their areas of specialization, while rooting them within the broader tradition of Christian thought. This is just one of the ways we are recreating the medieval university for the digital age.
