Welcome to the Society of Ordained Scientists. It may surprise you that a scientist should be a priest or minister. We believe that God is present in all aspects of human life and consider it part of our ministry to bring faith to the scientific community, science to the church, and both to the general public. We have members active in physics, chemistry, biology, engineering and many more disciplines. Some of us work primarily as pastors, others as researchers and scientists.
We are each of us called to a ministry of presence, witness, and service in the world. If you or your congregation want to engage more deeply in questions of theology and science, faith and reason, please contact us. Though we each have an outward ministry, the Society of Ordained Scientists is primarily focused inward. Through community, daily prayer, and regular retreats, the Society works to strengthen and enrich the ministry and faith of those who work in both fields. Our home is in the Anglican tradition, but we welcome members from many churches. If you are interested in joining, please contact one of the wardens.
