Prayer Practitioners

Prayer Practitioners are here to support you!

The role of the practitioner is to know the Truth for you, in the midst of your current situation. Practitioners firmly believe that “With God, all things are possible.”Talk to a Practitioner if you are in need of inspiration, celebration of a major event in your life and/or healing in any area: financial, relational, health or career. You are God’s wondrous gift. Let a Practitioner remind you of that!

Licensed Spiritual Practitioners (LSP) contribute to the spiritual welfare of our community by continually affirming the Oneness of all Life.  Practitioners are committed to living a spirit-based life cultivated by the daily practices of:  meditation, compassionate service, and affirmative prayer.

Practitioners are available for prayer after services on Sundays and Wednesdays. They also lead a 30-minute mediation between services on Sunday. You can recognize when a practitioner is in service to the community by the white stole they wear around their necks.

Practitioners never charge for prayer, but they are available during the week for private, individual guidance on a fee basis.  The fee is charged for the practitioner’s time, training, skill and professional knowledge of Science of Mind principles. Your interaction with the practitioner is based on integrity, trust and strict confidentiality.

The practitioner program is directed by Shelly Walker, LSP.
