Becoming ordained as a Minister of Satan is an advanced step that should not be entered into lightly. It requires both a history of participation in our community and a commitment to maintaining that connection in the future. If you have just recently joined The Satanic Temple, it is probably too soon for you be thinking about ordination. Becoming ordained is not a way to "get started" in Satanism; rather, it is a way for our active members to take the next step in their journey as part of our community.
If you have ended up on this page because you are a new member and are eager to learn more about Satanism and The Satanic Temple, then we have a different option for you: our Non-Ordination (Coursework Only) program. Completing the non-ordination version of the program does not make you an ordained Minister of Satan; however, it does allow you to go through the ordination lessons and receive an in-depth education about the history and philosophy of Satanism and The Satanic Temple. (Think of it like "auditing" a class at a university without being a full-time student.)
