The Invitation

In early 1986, Daniel Chesbro received guidance saying simply, “It is time to call the Priests.” With that statement and through subsequent dreams, Dan was guided to start the Order of Melchizedek.

After receiving guidance regarding the actual ceremony, Dan ordained the first two priests, a man and a woman, on Easter Sunday, March 22, 1986. Since then, over 16,000 people, from diverse backgrounds, have chosen this path.


About Melchizedek

Melchizedek is a historical figure in the Old Testament of the Bible and is said to be the original Priest. All Priest / Priestess traditions are descendants of his teachings and writings.

Of the many incarnations that “The Christ” assumed in order to serve the human condition, one is Melchizedek, a totally balanced being — as a Priest and as a King — and spiritually androgynous. Being more “spirit” than “physical”, he/she appeared on the Earth without a birth experience, wrote The Book of Job and the teachings on the principle of “The Law of One”. Upon completing his physical work, through true spontaneous combustion, he left the Earth plane.


Melchizedek is beloved by many faiths, as a great teacher and prophet. The “School of the Prophets” and the Essene Order are a result of his Earth work.




The Order


The Order of Melchizedek is a priesthood of individuals committed to teach and/or heal the Human Condition as it emerges into the Age of Aquarius. The order has come into physical form now because of the Earth transformation that is taking place. It last came into being in preparation for the coming of Christ.

This is not the only Melchizedek Order that has emerged; several groups have simultaneously begun, totally independent and many times unaware of each others' existence. This Order does not say that their way is the only way. There are many paths to God, but the basis of all true spiritual work is Love, Unconditional Love, and we all come from that Source.

The Order of Melchizedek does not discriminate; thus, everyone is welcomed. The Order is not a religion, but a service order. Each Priest is legally ordained under the “Sanctuary of the Beloved,” an incorporated, non-denominational church in New York State and in the United States.

Priests are not required to “give up” anything they believe in or to resign from any other organizations. There is no doctrine they must follow. There is no dogma, no hierarchy. (And no vows of celibacy or poverty!)


The Event


During the four-hour event, you will learn a history of the priesthood, as well as the Melchizedek energies and incarnations. Also, Rev. Chesbro will speak on the legal ramifications in becoming a priest allowed to perform weddings, baptisms, sacred rituals, and ceremonies.

Upon ordination, you receive an "energy boost" to enhance the work that you are already doing. It is a brief and sacred ceremony with universal, yet also individual, impact. Rev. Dan incorporates silver & water into the annointing, to include the feminine energies, and gold & oil to bring in the masculine. Some have captured an intense White Light on digital cameras during the proceedings (see photos this page).



If you are coming from a distance and wish to book a hotel stay, I recommend this one. There is no room block reserved, but it’s the closest and nicest:


Ann Arbor Regent Hotel and Suites
2455 Carpenter Road, Ann Arbor, MI 48108


There are also hotels around Briarwood Circle that are nice, and on Plymouth Road that are good.

If you decide to book at one of the other two hotels on Carpenter Road (Days Inn and Comfort Inn), do so at your own risk. They have the same owner and people have had problems with them in the past.
