What is a Prayer Chaplain?

A prayer chaplain is someone who:

  • Supports you on your spiritual journey
  • Holds sacred space with you
  • Listens to you and holds in confidence what is shared
  • Prays with you from the heart
  • Releases all prayer requests to God.

First Unity Church has trained Prayer Chaplains who would be honored to pray with you. Chaplains are available before and after each Sunday service. Prayer Chaplains also make monthly prayer phone calls to congregants who wish to receive them. If you have an immediate prayer need, call the church office at 314-845-8540 and a Prayer Chaplain will call you as soon as possible. Also Silent Unity is available 24 hours a day at 1-800-NOW-PRAY (1-800-669-2000).

Note that Prayer Chaplains are trained to pray -- not to counsel or advise. If you are in need of counseling, Reverend Jan Mourning is available by appointment. Please call the church office at 314-845-8540 to schedule an appointment.

If you are a member who is thinking about becoming a First Unity Prayer Chaplain, plan to attend one of the Orientation Sessions to learn all about the requirements and responsibilities of the Prayer Chaplain Program.
