Who is God calling you to be?

What is God Calling you to do?



Since 1997, The Rev. Dr. Roy F. Miller, Ph.D., and Mrs. Florence Lantz Miller Summer Youth Institute at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary has helped young people consider these two questions. Coming from Washington, D.C., to San Francisco, Calif., Canby, Minn., to Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico, and everywhere in between, these students come from small parishes and big steeples, big cities and small towns, U.S. territories and Indian Nations, representing all walks of life and theological perspectives.

We welcome you to explore our initiatives for youth and youth leaders.
