This eight-month, fully digital, cohort-based program combines synchronous leadership summits with self-paced digital coursework. Participants gain expertise from Princeton Theological Seminary faculty and leaders, in addition to our extensive network of scholars and practitioners. Courses include videos, readings, discussions, and contextual assignments. Join us to reflect deeply on the practice of youth ministry and build community with committed leaders from around the world.

In collaboration with the Black Theology and Leadership Institute (BTLI), the Certificate in Youth and Black Theology is a three-month, hybrid, cohort-based program designed for Black leaders in youth ministry.

Cultivating God’s Brainforest is a project that brings together neurodivergent young people, youth ministry leaders, and scholars to develop a digital course to help youth workers better understand the gifts of neurodiversity within the context of Christian congregations.  

This is an eight-week, ministry innovation intensive that guides a small cohort of congregational leaders through a process of ideation and prototyping toward a project or new ministry idea in their context. The goal is for each church to address the needs and hopes in their community by co-designing missional projects alongside young people. Let’s work together to build bridges between the missional identity of local congregations and the young people you hope to engage in your community.
