There is no required preparatory work. As long as you meet the eligibility requirements, you may register as a Candidate.
However, before you register you may want to ask yourself a few questions to assess whether you are ready to begin.
- Do you understand the history and symbolism of modern Satanism? Do you understand the history and mission of The Satanic Temple?
- Do you know an ordained member of leadership, such as a Congregation Head or Campaign Director, who can vouch that you are an active member of the community?
- Do you have at least twenty hours available over the next ninety days to go through the online curriculum, learn the material, pass the quizzes and final exam?
If you are unsure, you may prefer to delay registering your candidacy until you have had more time to prepare. If you would like more detail about the ordination program and requirements, please see the Ordination Standards.
