Black Theology & Leadership Institute


July 14 – July 19

Join us to explore “Food Justice” and through it we’ll explore the struggle for racial and environmental justice, the complexities and challenges of race and food, and share food stories and journeys. Black Theology & Leadership Institute (BTLI) will work, teach, and share in conjunction with Princeton Seminary’s Farminary. 

BTLI is a weeklong intensive continuing education event for clergy and laity for training, worship, and fellowship. The Institute is designed for clergy and lay leaders who would like to deepen their thinking and preaching by learning from preeminent scholars of theology and religion.

All are urged to apply, including those who may not have formal theological training. The Institute is limited to 50 fellows. Fellows will have a week to think deeply about theology and leadership through robust academics and thoughtful discernment.

The demanding schedule includes:

  • Work and learn on the Seminary’s Farminary
  • In-depth orientation of the week at the Farminary
  • Plenaries on key theological doctrines on social justice and leadership
  • A one-day immersion on wellness
  • Access to Princeton Seminary’s world-renowned libraries and generous study time
  • Daily Q&A
  • Guided discussions in cohort groups
  • Worship and intimate mentorship experiences+​
