    For current and former religious professionals without supernatural beliefs.

    The Clergy Project ®

    Are you a religious professional who no longer holds to supernatural beliefs? Have you remained in vocational ministry, secretly hiding away your non-belief? Are you struggling over where to go from here with your life and career? 

    Maybe you’ve been out for some time, out of the ministry and maybe even publicly out as a non-believer? Maybe you’ve found that the challenges continue to come with your new life and you’re in need of some good community with people who understand the issues you face? Maybe you’d simply love to connect with other religious professionals who have likewise left belief behind? 

    Wherever you may find yourself within this spectrum of answers, The Clergy Project® is for you! The Clergy Project (TCP) was established in 2011 to provide a safe haven of protected, anonymous online community for former and active religious professionals who no longer hold to supernatural beliefs. Here members can freely discuss the challenges they face regarding the absence of supernatural beliefs, the leaving of ministry, and the establishment of life’s next chapters. 

    Our growing pool of Participants now includes well over 600 current and former religious professionals who have traveled journeys similar to yours, and we invite you to join us! Please take some time to peruse the TCP site. Read our stories, learn about how it all works, and then consider your own application for TCP access. This just might be the breath of hope you’ve been searching for!

    Are you looking to partner together in support of clergy members making this incredible journey?

    As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, TCP relies on the generous contributions of its own members and those of their friends and partners for 100% of its funding. Gifts may be submitted by personal check or PayPal donation. Please consider clicking on the green “Support” button at right to partner in TCP’s vital work today!
