Program Eligibility

The Satanic Temple Ministry Ordination Program is being rolled out using a multi-phase "soft launch" approach. The two main factors that determine whether you are currently eligible to register for the program are your membership role within The Satanic Temple and your country of citizenship or residency.

  • ✔️ : you may register for the program
  • …  : you will be able to register in the next upcoming wave
  • (blank) : you will be able to register at some point after the next upcoming wave, but your position in the sequence has not yet been determined.

If you believe you are eligible according to the table below, but you have not received an email invitation to register for the program, please contact the Ordination Council to request a registration link.

If you are not currently eligible but are eager to start preparing, please check out our Ordination Study Guide.

We will not set deadlines at this time.

There are too many variable factors for us to set concrete deadlines for the planned next phases of the rollout.  We know you are very eager to get started. If you are a member of a congregation, talk to your congregation leadership to find out their plans and how they will approach the rollout for their Congregation Members. If you are not a member of a congregation, find out where the nearest official congregation or "friends-of group" is, and explore whether becoming a member is right for you.
