Hail and Welcome!

We are immensely excited and proud to bring to you the official TAC Clergy Training Program! We know that many of you have been eagerly anticipating the release of this program, and after a year of development we are finally ready to open it up to you! 

So what do you need to know?

What is the Clergy Program?

TAC's Clergy Program will be a tough and thorough course, intended to bring validity to the title of Gothi, that we feel it has lost. By no means do we mean to say that in every case where an individual takes up the role of their community's spiritual leader and calls themselves Gothi, is of unsound mind, ill intent or unqualified? Many great and amazing people have made it their mission to guide their peers spiritually, all the while being students themselves, through hard work and dedication. It is our intent to make this path easier for those wish to be that guide and helping hand; as well as those that already are, by providing a solid educational base for serving as a Gothi.

What are the requirements? 

  • The individual must consider that they have been a Heathen for at least one full year. 
     

  • They must pass, and present a background check. 
     

  • They must have at least a high school diploma, and a basic academic understanding. 
     

  • They must be known by the community.   
     

  • They must be able to travel, and be independent. 
     

  • They must pay their registration fees before starting 
     

  • They must be a Charter Member for 90 days. 

  • We are very proud of the Program and feel it will be a valuable contribution to the community. Applications will be available via our website when the program officially launches.
