Membership Requirements

If you cover or supervise coverage of religion professionally, you can become a member of the International Association of Religion Journalists (IARJ). Joining is free.

Membership Benefits

  • Global support network: connect with fellow journalists covering faith and religion.
  • Promote yourself and your work: introduce yourself and showcase your work to others in the IARJ network by being featured on our website. Joining the IARJ alone does not opt you into this benefit. We will only feature you on the website when you explicitly consent.
  • Cross-national reporting opportunities: connecting to other journalists at the IARJ allows you to form professional reporting partnerships.
  • Ongoing industry education: learn about best practices in international religion journalism and fresh ideas on the beat.
  • Online and in-person event participation: join online or in-person discussions, workshops and international conferences.
  • Job and fellowship openings: be informed of the latest job and fellowship openings related to international coverage of religion. Discover job and training opportunities in mainstream journalism.
