About the Institute for Youth Ministry
Princeton Theological Seminary established the Institute for Youth Ministry in 1995, providing fertile ground where a new conversation about theologically informed youth ministry could take root and flourish. Committed to integrating theology and practice, The Institute for Youth Ministry (IYM) collaborates with church leaders, congregations, scholars, and adolescents to promote the strategic importance and practice of ministry with young people from early adolescence through college age. The IYM seeks to revitalize ministry with adolescents by helping the church integrate youth ministry into the total mission of the congregation and by encouraging a theologically rich approach to this ministry.
The IYM initiates and integrates research related to the church’s mission with young people through offering programs, events, and resources for leadership development. Princeton Theological Seminary’s professors and doctoral students intersect with the work of the IYM through research in practical theology as well as lectures at Forums and in the online classroom.
