Stephen Ministry

Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

Galatians 6:2

Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide one-to-one Christian care to people in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives.

Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry. The identity of those receiving care and everything they discuss with a Stephen Minister remain confidential.

A Stephen Minister is ..........

A child of God who walks beside someone who is hurting.
A congregation member who is carefully selected to serve in this role.
A layperson with 50 hours of training in providing high-quality, distinctively Christian care.
A caring Christian friend who listens, cares, prays, supports, and encourages.
Someone who meets faithfully each week with his or her care receiver for as long as there is a need.

We all experience challenges in life. Stephen Ministers can provide the emotional and spiritual care needed when faced with a crisis or difficulty such as.......

Loss of a loved one
Divorce or separation
Loneliness or discouragement
Unemployment or a job crisis
A terminal illness
Spiritual crisis
Many other life challenges
