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 young people to promote the strategic importance and practice of ministry with youth from early adolescence through college age. The IYM seeks to revitalize ministry with young people 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, online classes and programs, and digital content.
We help Christian leaders know and love young people,
so that the whole church might participate in the transformative work of God in the world.
