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, you will begin the application process.  Step One: The organizing pastor completes the cohort application linked from this page.  Step Two: Each member of the cohort submits a cohort member form.  Access to the cohort member form is included in the confirmation email sent to the organizing pastor along with instructions to share the link with members.  An application is complete once all members have submitted the information form.  Cohorts with complete applications will hear of admission no later than November 15, 2022.  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 November 10, 2022.
