While WiCoM is goverened the elected Board, we are guided spiritually by our May Queen and Green Man (and as of 1993, sometimes by our Fool/s). These offices are chosen by lottery from those within the church who are willing to serve the Gods and the People. This tradition is handed down to WiCoM from it's predecessor, Minnesota Church of the Wicca. In 1989, some of the MCoW members felt called to form a new entity; thus was formed the Wiccan Church of Minnesota.
The May Couple/May Team
WiCoM has had an unbroken line of succession for our May Team since our origins in the Minnesota Church of the Wicca. As spritual advisors, they are also the representatives of the Goddess and God over the course of the year. As symbol of this, at each Beltaine ritual, the Goddess and God are drawn into the current May Couple and passed directly to the newly chosen May Couple. In 1993, a new office was added to acknowledge the free-form energies that do not associate with the male/female dichotomy.
Listed below are the holders of our Sacred Offices:
|Season||May Queen||Green Man||Fool(s)||Notes|
|1977-78||Vikki||Myrddin||Position of Fool
|Minnesota Church of the Wicca|
|1989-90||Tallin||Scott||WiCoM Founded. May Couple presided over both churches.|
|1990-91||Katie||Tony||Wiccan Church of Minnesota|
|1997-98||Valeria||Mahada||Qwill||Legend: Boldfaced vs Italics: With rare exceptions, power is passed from Male to Female; from Female to Male. To follow the power line, follow the attribute.|
|2001-02||Blaze||Uilleam||Foolishness: The office of the fool was established in 1993, but it was further determined that the office could/should not fall under mundane restrictions. The Church decided that the Gods should be unhindered about whether there should be one, two, or no Fools determined by their lottery. This is why you will see blanks or multiples within the Fool column on any given year.|

|2006-07||Vita||Steven of Prodea||Fugue & Baraka|
|2009-10||Aurora||Soaric||Estelle & Mother|

|2012-13||Ajna||Soaric||Fugue & J-Rob|
We humbly thank each and every one of the individuals who have answered the call of the Gods and of our members.
