Our History

Lord Laith Angus Min founded Life Temple and Seminary based on a 'Crafte of The Land' family tradition, passed through many generations of the Cheek and Croyw families. In 1994, Life Temple and Seminary gained our 501(c)(3), making us one of the few Temples in the Carolinas to have & maintain a legal, non-profit status. Our beliefs are orthodox in nature and are often regarded alongside other well-known traditional covens such as Ravenwood of Atlanta GA and Tuatha Caer de Shidhe of Greenville SC. This is largely due to Lord Min's steadfast approach to Crafte preservation and his passion for maintaining relationships in the traditional Wiccan Community. His diligent research lead to countless essays, articles and papers that he shared rather willingly. His research & writings continued until 2010, at which time he suffered a prolonged illness that lead to his passing in May 2011. 

In 2003 Lord Chase Night Smith became the High Priest of Life Temple & Seminary. Lord Night remains extremely active in the Temple as an Elder, board member, and High Priest. 

2012 marked the 3rd Degree initiation of Lady Alba Gabrielle; she is our High Priestess.
