2010 - 2011 Prayer Chaplains
2010 prayer chaplains 

We are thrilled to welcome our new Prayer Chaplain team into service. During this past summer, 20 members of our congregation completed over 30 hours of training and have made the commitment to serve in prayerful support of their spiritual community.


This dedicated team is available for prayer following all of our Celebration Services. In addition, they offer calls of prayer support to over 600 congregant households every month, assist in the facilitation of special worship services, and are available to make hospital visits when requested.


Our Prayer Chaplains offer a prayer consciousness that aligns with the mission and vision of Unity Church of Overland Park, and supports every aspect of our ministry. We honor and bless them as they begin their year of service to us all.
