Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry exists to represent the healing love of Christ Jesus to men and women who are hurting

What is Stephen Ministry?

Stephen Ministry is a caregiving ministry in our congregation in which trained and supervised laypersons, called Stephen Ministers, provide one-to-one Christian care to individuals facing life challenges. All of their work is confidential and free! For more information about Stephen Ministry, please check out their website at www.StephenMinistry.org.

What do Stephen Ministers do?

Stephen Ministers provide one-on-one, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting or going through difficult seasons of life. They are mature Christians who listen, understand, accept, encourage, and pray for care receivers. They offer this spiritual and emotional support one hour a week for as long as it is needed. All Stephen Ministers agree to follow the Stephen Minister Covenant. You can learn more about the responsibilities of a Stephen Minister online here.
