Princeton Theological Seminary is seeking its next president to lead the institution as it prepares faithful leaders for ministries in congregations and the larger church, the academy, and in the public arena.
A Presbyterian school in the Reformed tradition, Princeton Seminary is an ecumenical, international, and intercultural community that holds Jesus Christ as the center of our life together. The Seminary provides a residential community of worship and learning with a focus on intellectual excellence and emotional, social, and spiritual development. The next president of Princeton Seminary will embrace the institution’s commitment to leading with faith in all areas of life; rigorous theological scholarship; and providing an environment for seminarians to flourish, so they can better serve the church and the world.
The Seminary seeks to be an intersection for the church worldwide and engage Christian faith with intellectual, political, and economic life in pursuit of truth, justice, compassion, and peace.
This is an exciting time to join Princeton Seminary and the next president will be someone who can work alongside the Seminary community to:
Michele Minter, Co-chair
Jeff O'Grady, MDiv ’88, Co-chair
Eric Barreto, MDiv ’04, faculty representative
Kenda Creasy Dean, PhD ’97, faculty representative
Margaret Kibben, DMin ‘02, MDiv ’86
Hana Kim, ThM ‘05
Jane MacKenzie, MDiv ‘17
Wesley Rowell, MDiv ‘23, student representative
Peter Whitelock, DMin ‘03, ThM ’89
Steve Yamaguchi, MDiv ‘88
Michael Fisch, ex officio
The selection of Princeton Seminary’s next president will be a thorough and thoughtful process of discernment that will entail opportunities to gather input from the campus community, alumni, and friends. The presidential search process commenced with the establishment of the search committee in February 2022 and is expected to continue through the installation and onboarding of the next president.
