About Us

Continuing Education at Princeton Theological Seminary

Each year, Continuing Education at Princeton Theological Seminary sponsors dozens of educational events, many taught by the seminary's faculty, for pastors, ministers, lay leaders, members of Christian congregations, and the general public. Our events include retreats, lecture series, and courses that vary in length from one to five days on the seminary's campus, or at other sites around the country. All of our events blend theological, ethical, or biblical study with discussion of how to faithfully apply these subjects in today's church and world. In a typical academic year, Continuing Education offers more than 60 educational events at 10 different locations for nearly 2,400 ministers and interested lay people.

We strive to be a place for rigorous theological reflection that is also directly applicable to serving the church – a place to study, be renewed, and leave challenged to connect theology with practice. We accomplish these goals by listening to a diverse set of partners in the pulpit, pew, denominational leadership, and in seminaries as we design our programs. We try to identify the real needs of those in the field and develop programs that help participants grow as Christian leaders.

Finally, we offer excellent, technology-equipped conference facilities, complete with conference support services, for purposes of educational conferences and retreats.

More information about some of our long-standing programs can be found on the sites of the Institute for Youth Ministry and the Engle Institute for Preaching.
