Unity Prayer Chaplain Program
Sunday, May 6th at 1 pm
Is there something tugging at your soul, seeking to express more, to be more? Perhaps you are awakening to the Light within you wanting to express itself, and you are not really sure of what your next step is. Consider taking that step by expanding your awareness of the way prayer works and moves in your soul to connect you with the Creative Power of the Universe, by becoming a Prayer Chaplain.
The Prayer Chaplain Program offers the opportunity to learn about Unity’s very powerful prayer process, then asks you to more fully develop that awareness by being of sacred service through praying with others in our spiritual community. It is a unique opportunity to be of personal and spiritual service to members of our spiritual community, while you deepen your awareness of how prayer works. Being a Prayer Chaplain can be a transformative soul work for those who answer this call of Spirit to utilize and develop the powerful prayer techniques that are taught and shared at Silent Unity.
No prior experience in prayer or praying is required to serve as a Prayer Chaplain. Unlike hospital, hospice or military chaplains, Prayer Chaplains are not ordained, not board certified by any nationally known organization and not trained to counsel people. Prayer Chaplains are not trained to go out and “minister” to the larger community, but are trained as a lay resource to help meet individuals with our community at the point of their need. Prayer Chaplains are trained to do three things: hold spiritual space, listen, and pray in the very powerful Silent Unity method. Prayer Chaplains will be an extension of our ministry team and will help us to make a more personal connection with our membership.
Those who answer the call will be asked to attend 18 hours of training. This training will be conducted by Tina Wellman, Mark Laverents, Dana Martin, and other prayer chaplains who have had the opportunity to attend the Prayer Chaplain Trainer Program. Prayer Chaplains are asked to be available for monthly one-on-one prayer with congregants, wellness calls, Prayer Chaplain Meetings, and a commitment to one year of service. Think about stepping into a bold new way of being of Sacred Service and of learning a powerful way to Pray.
