Group Overview: Appalachian Pagan Ministry is a pan-pagan ministry devoted to building an engaged, passionate, and spiritually fulfilled community of people from all backgrounds and faiths. We are devoted to engaging and impacting one another and others, believing it is our responsibility to set an example of service. This is where we come to “walk our talk” and educate by example. It is the desire of this ministry to show that pagans of all beliefs and faiths CAN work together to serve the greater community. “You are what you do, not what you say you'll do.”----C.G. Jung

Appalachian Pagan Ministry was formed in response to a need that was felt from the community. It is our belief that the pagan community can, and should, come together as a whole to serve the greater community we live in. "The Christians have a term, "witnessing your faith", and I feel that it is a term just as relevant to those of us who follow pagan paths Hate comes from fear, and fear comes from ignorance. The only way to eradicate hate is to educate, and the best way to educate is by example, not talk."-- Rev. Donna Donovan It is with that goal in mind, to educate by example, that Appalachian Pagan Ministry is engaged in a pan-pagan prison ministry to address the needs of pagans currently incarcerated in the West Virginia Dept. of Corrections and in Ohio, as well as elsewhere around the country as needed, as well as various other projects that will serve the greater community. Appalachian Pagan Ministry is a non-profit organization, and as such, is reliant solely on contributions and donations from the community. Any and all funds received for the ministry will be specifically for the use of the ministries works. There are no paid employees, only volunteers who wish to join our cause.

Currently we are on-site monthly at five facilities in WV and four facilities in Ohio, including Death Row. The request for our presence is growing. According to the Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion and Public Life, Pagan/earth-based, Native American, and other non-Abrahamic religions are growing in our prisons nationally at a combined rate of 71%. Study after study is showing the effectiveness of spiritual and religious programming in prisons on the reduction of recidivism rates. It is our goal to implement a pagan prison ministry that will be able to address the spiritual needs of all pagans incarcerated. This is not a "one-size fits all" ministry....we are ordained and licensed ministers from a variety of pagan paths: traditional polytheist, Wiccan, Asatru, Odinist, Satanist/Luciferian, Appalachian Hoodoo, Celtic Paganism, etc...
