The network seeks to cultivate community among young adult Christian leaders, amplify their ministries in a variety of local contexts, and inspire other young adults to lead from their own Christian faith. The network will begin in 2023 with a fellowship program. Fellows ages 23-29 will be nominated from across the country to participate in a year-long leadership acceleration cohort to build relationships with each other and strengthen their local ministry projects. Participants will receive coaching and subgrants to accelerate local ministry projects along with funding to visit leaders who have sparked their Christian imagination. An array of publicly available opportunities will also be available for young adults to hone their leadership skills, discern their calling, and amplify their stories in public life. Alongside work with young adults, the network will engage an extensive research and mapping project to learn from organizations who serve and inspire young adult Christian leaders. Learnings will be publicly shared so that pastors, parents, educators, and young adults themselves can better understand the landscape and scope of vibrant Christian leadership among people in their 20s.

The Hispanic Theological Initiative is a program administered and based at Princeton Theological Seminary under the leadership of Rev. Joanne Rodriguez. The intent of this project is to increase recruitment, retention, and graduation rates of Hispanic PhD students, leveraging institutional resources toward dissertation completion and the eventual doctorate that will result in a greater presence of Hispanic faculty and senior administrators in seminaries, schools of theology, and universities.
