Chapter: 37. What does a Pagan Minister do?

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.45504


Paganism recognises the need for trained individuals in ministry. Pagan ministers address ethical and family support issues, but the prevalence of solitary Pagans and financial constraints pose challenges. They interact with the community via writing, workshops and digital media, serving as chaplains. The training focuses on ethical behaviour, listening skills, confidentiality and leadership. The evolution of Pagan ministry is crucial in providing spiritual support for communities.
