Prayer Chaplain Program


If you love prayer, consider becoming a Unity Church in Redding Prayer Chaplain. Our Prayer Chaplain Program opens up once a year for training of new chaplains.

Our Unity in Redding Prayer Chaplain Program was officially launched in September of 2009. Our current Prayer Chaplains are Rev. Ken Ficklin and Kathy Black. We are blessed by their healing presence and their loving gift of service to our ministry.   

Our Prayer Chaplains are available to pray with you. They assist other church leaders in creating a ministry where people are empowered to pray with one another, recognizing God’s presence and power in every moment.

Being a Prayer Chaplain is a way to express one’s divine potential while achieving deeper spiritual fulfillment.

In Unity, the role of a Prayer Chaplain is to hold spiritual space, listen from the heart, pray with others, and hold in confidence what is shared.

 All candidates for Prayer Chaplain receive extensive training through orientation sessions, a weekend retreat, wellness training and ongoing monthly training sessions.

People who volunteer to be a Prayer Chaplain agree to take on certain responsibilities, such as:

  • Make a one-year commitment to serve

  • Maintain a personal prayer life

  • Make wellness calls to members of our congregation

  • Make home & hospital visitations

  • Communicate regularly with the Prayer Chaplain Trainer

• Attend a mandatory orientation, training sessions and monthly training meetings.

During this coming year, if you think you would like to serve as a Prayer Chaplain, we invite you to pray about your calling. If you are not already a member of Unity Church in Redding, you will need to join our membership before you are eligible to take the Prayer Chaplain training. 

Stepping up to this sacred service is about stepping up to your next level of spiritual growth. If you have additional questions, please contact Unity Church in Redding at 530-246-9544 or
