Stephen Ministry

What is Stephen Ministry?
Pastors will always be on the front lines of care, especially during times of crisis. But there are always many more needs for ongoing, one-to-one care than pastors can effectively meet by themselves.

Stephen Ministry provides a thoroughly biblical solution - equipping God's people for ministry. Gifted laypeople receive training to support and extend the care that pastors continue to provide.

Our congregation's Stephen Ministry equips laypeople to provide one-on-one Christian care to people in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives.

Stephen Ministers Care for People Facing Tough Times
We all experience challenges in life - times when we could benefit from care and support. Stephen Ministers can provide the emotional and spiritual care we need when faced with a crisis of difficulty such as: loss of a loved one, hospitalization, divorce/separation, spiritual crisis, terminal illness, incarceration, and many other life challenges.

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