How does a Unity Prayer Chaplain differ from a Chaplain in a hospital or care facility?
Unlike hospital Chaplains, Unity Prayer Chaplains may not be ordained and are not trained to counsel people. Unity Prayer Chaplains are trained to do three things only: hold spiritual space, listen, and pray. Unity Prayer Chaplains are not trained to go out and “minister” to the community-at-large but are trained as a lay resource to help meet the pastoral care needs within our community.
