Chaplains are Here to Support You

They will pray with you, listen to you, and hold what they hear in confidence. Unlike hospital chaplains, Unity chaplains are not ordained and are not trained to counsel. Our chaplains make monthly wellness calls to all church members, offering to pray with them. All requests for prayer are held in the strictest confidence. Chaplains also are available for individual prayer after each Sunday service, send an email or you may leave a message at (727) 527-2222 x100.

What Chaplains Do: Our mission at First Unity Spiritual Campus is “inspire, ignite and invigorate ourselves to pave our spiritual path.” In support of this mission, we are committed to reaching out in prayer, pastoral care and support to our community.

What is a Unity chaplain?

  • Someone who is here to support you on your spiritual journey.
  • Someone who will create and hold a sacred space with you.
  • Someone who will listen to you and hold what is heard in the strictest confidence.
  • Someone who will pray with you.

Weekly services: Our chaplains support our mission by reaching out in prayer, comfort and support to our congregation through weekly services. Prayer is offered to anyone who desires after services each Sunday. The chaplains also attend a one hour prayer and meditation service at 6:00 pm every Wednesday in the Sanctuary. Each service includes special music, meditation and prayer for anyone who requests it.

Monthly wellness calls: Our chaplains also make monthly wellness calls to all members, offering to pray with them. Although only members are called monthly, everyone is welcome and invited to ask chaplains for prayer and attend the weekly prayer and meditation services. All requests for prayer are held in the strictest confidence.
