Black Theology and Leadership Institute
The Black Theology and Leadership Institute is a week long intensive continuing education event for the training, worship, and fellowship of clergy and laity. The institute is designed for clergy and lay leaders who may not have formal theological training, as well for those who do have theological training but would like to deepen their thinking and preaching by learning from preeminent scholars of theology and religion. Priority will be given to non-seminary trained clergy/church leaders; however, all are urged to apply.
Fellows will have a week to think deeply about theology and leadership through robust academics and thoughtful discernment. The demanding schedule includes:
In-depth Orientation of the week
Three plenaries each on Creation, Christology, Theodicy, and Pneumatology.
A one-day immersion on Leadership
Access to Princeton Seminary’s world-renowned libraries and generous study time
Guided discussions in cohort groups
Worship and mentorship experiences
Particular to the Black Theology and Leadership Institute is an emphasis on direct mentorship from outstanding church, civic, and academic experts. Time will be set aside for one-on-one appointments as well as deliberate moments in the schedule for networking and fellowship.
