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
“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
Appalachian Pagan Ministry was founded in April of 2015, by Rev Donna Donovan. APM currently works on-site monthly with pagan inmates in 23 facilities (including Death Row) in 3 states, West Virginia, Arizona and Ohio. Appalachian Pagan Ministry goes in monthly and hold Moots with the Heathen inmates, services with the Wiccan and general pagan inmates, services with the Satanist and Luciferian inmates, as well as offering several correspondence courses to Kindreds and Covens in facilities around the nation. Appalachian Pagan Ministry also facilitates various rituals on site for the facilities they serve in person, holds memorials for those inmates who have passed, and helps with resources and such upon release.
