Application & Costs

How to Apply

Interested pastors are invited to form a cohort of 4 – 6 preachers and apply together. Because of the nature of the program, gathering online and on the Princeton Seminary campus, cohort members need not live in the same area.

You might recruit pastors from your community or draw upon colleagues in your regional judicatory. Consider forming new bonds of vocational friendship or strengthening those already established. Be thoughtful about how you form your group to ensure the experience you are seeking. If admitted, you will work together to create the plan for your group.

Once you have recruited your cohort members, the organizing pastor completes the application form including the names and contact information for each member. We accept applications on a rolling basis. Applications will be reviewed, and you will be informed of admission to the program within ten business days of receipt. Space is limited to 48 participants (8 – 12 cohorts) and priority will be given to those who have not participated in an earlier roundtable or S.T.P.L. group at Princeton Seminary.

The application closes March 14, 2022.
