Unity of Buffalo Prayer Chaplain Program
Our Unity Prayer Chaplain Program is a unique and rewarding sacred service program within our ministry that trains and supports congregants to serve in the role as Prayer Chaplains. It is an opportunity to both serve others and deepen your own spirituality!
We offer prayer and pastoral support, and energy healing support during these uncertain and challenging times! We are here to support you- Please let us know how we can help.
If you would like a Prayer Chaplain to pray with you, please contact our Church office by phone (716-882-0391) or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our minister, Rev. Mary Masters is always available to provide pastoral support and spiritual counseling on an appointment basis as well.
What is a Unity Prayer Chaplain?
- Someone who prays with you from the heart.
- Someone who is here to support you on your spiritual journey.
- Someone who will create and hold a spiritual space with you.
- Someone who will listen to you and hold what is heard in strictest confidence.
Prayer Chaplains fulfill their role during the year by:
- Leading prayers during our Sunday services
- Praying with people one-on-one after each service
- Making monthly wellness phone calls to church members
- Attending 2 meetings each month for on-going training and support
- Committing to these responsibilities for one year at a time. All training requirements must be completed (or repeated) each year for a Prayer Chaplain to re-commit for another year.
When people pray together their intention is magnified. As Jesus said,
“Where two or more are gathered in my name, there I am in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:20)
