Prayer Chaplain Training
Are you at a place in your spiritual life that you are ready to serve others—through praying one on one with another person, holding Spiritual Space, leading a chapel meditation, or listening to others with compassion?
This is the mission of the Prayer Chaplains at Unity of Portland. Training is required. If you feel called to serve as a Prayer Chaplain or want to know more about the program, please call Alethia Devi at (503) 234-7441. A Prayer Chaplain Orientation Packet describing the Prayer Chaplain program is also available through the church office. Download Printable Flyer Here
A Message From Rev. Dick Everts
Do you feel called to serve others through prayer? Perhaps the Unity Prayer Chaplain program is for you.
If this program is resonating within you, you will want to begin the application process now. You are asked to apply now because of the church membership schedules and Unity class requirements. This also provides enough time for planning your personal time away so as to not interfere with your 14 weeks of Prayer Chaplain training.
Listed below are the prerequisites and process for entering the Prayer Chaplain Program this year.
- An active attendee of Unity Church of Portland, UCP for 6 months prior to being accepted into the Prayer Chaplain Program
- Church membership is required prior to being confirmed as a Prayer Chaplain.
- Complete one Basic Unity class for credit (I.e. How I used Truth, Lesson's in Truth, Discover the Power within You, Christian Healing, etc.); and, one Unity Prayer class for credit (Life of Prayer, Teach Us to Pray, A Closer Walk with God, etc, taught for credit) prior to being confirmed as a Prayer Chaplain.
- All Chaplain Candidates will have a Background Check prior to being accepted into the Prayer Chaplain Program.
Prayer for Protection
by James Dillet Freeman
The light of God surrounds me;
The love of God enfolds me;
The power of God protects me;
The presence of God watches over me;
Wherever I am, God is!
