Spiritual Principles & Practices
What a Soul Center OC Prayer Chaplain is:
A Soul Center OC Prayer Chaplain is trained and licensed in the New Thought teachings of affirmative prayer, and can pray with others. A Prayer Chaplain is someone who evokes Grace, can create and hold sacred space for themselves and others. To hold sacred space means to embrace a consciousness and Divine power of God’s Truth and healing.
A Prayer Chaplain has taken all the required classes and is trained in the Universal Principals and Laws observed by Soul Center OC in alignment with Agape International Spiritual Center.
Prayer Chaplains have committed to serving our community by being available for individual prayer after services and by phone that meet a minimum hourly requirement.
Prayer Chaplains occasionally may make in person hospital or home visits during challenging times.
Prayer Chaplains maintain a code of ethics and confidentiality and are mindful of any state or federal laws thereof. Prayer chaplains are individuals steeped and certified in the principles of affirmative prayer and are not New Thought Spiritual Counselors (ALSP; RScP).
Becoming a Prayer Chaplain:
The prayer chaplaincy program is for those who are looking to deepen their connection to Spirit though prayer and service. SCOC Prayer Chaplains serve the congregation by offering individual prayer on Sunday mornings and through telephone call prayer requests as needed. Prayer Chaplains connect to the community in a deep and meaningful way by holding sacred space and practicing kindness and compassion.
The commitment to become a Soul Center OC Prayer Chaplain begins with a simple application and interview to welcome you into the program. There is a small non-refundable application fee to begin the process and help cover administrative costs. If a required class has been taken prior to entering into the program, the class(es) will be reviewed for consideration of program fulfillment. Some classes from other spiritual centers will also be considered.
Below is an outline of required classes to complete the program. In some cases alternate classes may serve as a substitute for those listed and will be announced as such.

Since I have been attending Soul Center I have more Joy & Love in my life and less fear & stress. There are wonderful connections with kind and joyful people. The entire experience has enriched my life.
Soul Center is where I come to connect with the Divine and my Spiritual Community. I feel the true Agape spirit! Sunday is uplifting, filled with beautiful music, and a message delivered with Love. Sunday inspires you to see how magnificent you are. I am so enjoying the amazing speakers, and the fun activities at Soul Center.
I am so grateful to have found an open, loving, and accepting Spiritual community dedicated to seeking the highest values in truth, love and peace.
