The Institute for Youth Ministry offers digital and hybrid programming that helps leaders and congregations reflect theologically and use our creative process for Christian formation in their ministry contexts.
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 readings, case studies, and interdepartmental instruction (i.e., Biblical studies, pastoral care, constructive theology). Join us to reflect deeply on the practice of youth ministry and build community with committed leaders from around the world.

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.
