One of the key aspects of Davenant’s ministry across the U.S. and Canada, national and regional convivia, are held annually in a number of places, including right here at Davenant House. In addition to presenting and listening to papers, we eat together, drink together, worship together, discuss abstruse philosophical questions, hard pastoral challenges, and our favorite new movies together as we walk through the woods, recline on the porch or sit around the campfire. We bring together pastors, church leaders, scholars, grad students, businessmen, and public servants. Together, we explore what it means to pursue Christian wisdom – a gathering of truth in love of God, so as to embody and radiate it to the world.
This year’s National Convivium will focus on the theme of Christian education. As the great educational awakening often called the “classical Christian education movement” enters its third generation, and has gone from the fringes to the mainstream, several key questions have come to the fore, highlighting rival visions of what a “classical Christian education” should look like or should aim to achieve.
The Davenant House hosts the Annual Carolinas Regional Convivium as well as the Annual National Convivium. Click below for more information on each and to register.
