Pinnacle Presbyterian Church


Park Center to Partner with Princeton

Pinnacle is pleased to announce a new partnership with External Princeton Theological Seminary (XPTS). Princeton has asked the Fran Park Center to be their proof of concept for a brand-new program called Certificate of Theological Seminary (C: TM + Online.) Eventually there will be many XPTS campuses throughout the country, but Pinnacle is the first.


The FPC is forming small cohort to participate in this online program which begins at the end of January, 2018. It’s a 14-week self-paced, online class that is a ‘peer-to-peer concept.’ This means that one does the course work online, but there is an open discussion among the group. Along with the online course work, there is a weekly ‘live class’ hosted by a Princeton Theological Seminary professor on one of four topics, but all four will be covered:

  • Old Testament
  • New Testament
  • Theology
  • World Christianity

The last part of the C: TM + Online program is the hypothetical case study that is part of the weekly module. This case study is also discussed at a meeting with the cohort on Sunday afternoon following worship. The ultimate goal of the C: TM + Online is completely in line with the Fran Park Center goals.
