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.

The Betsey Stockton Center for Black Church Studies offers a concentration enabling students at Princeton Theological Seminary to develop a focused academic program centered on African and African American religious traditions and institutions. 

Princeton Theological Seminary hosts numerous lecture series that relate to issues of racial and social justice and the ministry of African American congregations or other racial-ethnic minority communities, including the Prathia Hall Lecture, the Martin Luther King Jr. Lecture, and the Geddes W. Hanson Lectureship. 

The Betsey Stockton Center is committed to preparing children of God for vocational ministry or scholarly pursuits shaped by a wider knowledge and deeper appreciation of Black life within American and global Christianity. To that end, we host virtual and in-person events on timely subjects throughout the academic year.
