About Satanic Ordination

The Satanic Temple launched the Satanic Ordination program in 2020 as a way to recognize qualified members who have demonstrated a deep and passionate understanding of the beliefs, values and goals of our church and a connection to our community. Those who successfully complete this program to become ordained Ministers of Satan have earned the right to perform a wide range of ministerial functions on behalf of The Satanic Temple; however, becoming an ordained Minister of Satan also represents a promise to uphold the responsibilities and adhere to the limitations provided by our church and our community.

We require our ordained ministers to embody the following four principles.

  • A commitment to developing a personal Satanic philosophy.

  • A promise to model the Seven Tenets in thought and action.

  • A dedication to the well-being of our community.

  • A dedication to lifelong learning and self-development.
