Continuing Education


Princeton Seminary and its partners offer certificates through the Office of Continuing Education for the professional development of church leaders. Certificate programs provide learners with a community of peers along with scholarly and socially relevant theological education.

Certificate in Youth and Theology

Strengthen your ministry with youth by earning a Certificate in Youth and Theology. You will learn to integrate theology and ministry, incorporate best practices, and build vocational friendships. This 12-month program includes an on-campus retreat, attendance at two youth forums, coaching, book studies, case studies, and online courses centered on theological engagement with the practice of youth ministry.

Executive Certificate in Religious Fundraising

In partnership with Lake Institute on Faith & Giving, Princeton Theological Seminary is offering the Executive Certificate in Religious Fundraising (ECRF). A four-day intensive program with a practical application project, the ECRF provides the research, tools and customized training to meet the growing needs of leaders in religious communities and fundraisers of faith-based organizations. The focus of the ECRF is on the cultural, organizational and philanthropic practices unique to religious institutions that in turn enable donors motived by spiritual and religious values to experience the joy of generous giving. The ECRF training sessions are generally offered on campus annually in the fall.
