Theopolis intensive courses give students the opportunity to engage in rigorous study of Scripture, liturgy, and culture; to participate in joyous and vigorous worship; and to spend time with the Theopolis Fellows. The classes are also opportunities for fellowship, building relationships, and interaction among students. To that end, Theopolis provides housing during the intensive class week and also provides breakfast and lunch to students. Theopolis has limited space for students, and accommodations are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Housing Options

Theopolis intensive class students are welcome to make their own plans for housing, but we do provide two levels of housing.


Nazirites are sturdy warriors who are prepared to endure hardships. Theopolis has room for 8-10 men who will be housed in the parsonage at Trinity Presbyterian Church. Beds and bedding will be provided, but the parsonage has little furniture, no TV, phone, or internet.

Nazirites, take note:

  • Nazirites should bring their own towels and other bathroom gear.
  • The Nazirite bivouac is available to those who fly into Birmingham and are not renting cars.
  • The Nazirite bivouac is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Each Nazirite will pay $40/per week to cover utility and water use.
  • Nazirites may not cut their hair during the intensive week, though they may drink wine in the evenings. Raisin Bran is taboo.


In obedience to the Scriptures, members of Trinity Presbyterian Church open their homes to Strangers in the land. Theopolis has room for 4 men or women in the homes of Trinity Presbyterian Church families.

Strangers, take note:

  • Accommodations for strangers are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Strangers must have their own transportation.
  • Strangers may glean and scrump to their hearts’ content.
Housing Disclaimer

Trinity House admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies or scholarship programs.


Theopolis believes in the spiritual power of sharing meals, and to facilitate as many common meals as possible, we will provide a simple Continental breakfast and fixings for a sandwich lunch each day during the intensive class at the Beeson Divinity School. Coffee will be available throughout the day. All students are expected to eat lunch with fellow students and instructors at the school. Students will eat dinner as a group at an area restaurant.
