Princeton Theological Seminary prepares women and men to serve Jesus Christ in ministries marked by faith, integrity, scholarship, competence, compassion, and joy, equipping them for leadership worldwide in congregations and the larger church, in classrooms and the academy, and in the public arena.
Princeton Seminary’s Reformed tradition shapes the instruction, research, practical training, and continuing education, as well as the theological scholarship it promises. The Seminary embraces in its life and work a rich racial and ethnic diversity and the breadth of communions represented in the worldwide church. It offers its theological scholarship in service to God’s renewal of the church’s life and mission, and it seeks to engage Christian faith with intellectual, political, and economic life in pursuit of truth, justice, compassion, and peace.
Men and women from across the nation and around the world come to Princeton Theological Seminary every year to pursue ministry as a vocation.
