Yes. It is important that our ordained ministers be active in our community in some way and we require that you get a ‘letter of approval’ from an ordained minster who is within leadership as part of your ordination course.
Being involved within the community is most easily demonstrated through the establishment of social relationships with other members, whether in-person, via online message groups, using video conferencing, or any other mechanism.
However, you need not be a very “social” person, nor are you required to have met other members of The Satanic Temple face-to-face. We understand that many people are introverts, and some people have circumstances that prevent them from comfortably engaging in common social scenarios. We want our ordination program to be inclusive and accommodating of a wide range of personality and interaction styles.
