STEPHEN MINISTRIES

What Is Stephen Ministries?

"Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ."
Galations 6:2
Stephen Ministries organizes, trains, and supervises a team of congregation members - called Stephen Ministers - to provide high-quality, confidential, one-to-one, Christ-centered care to people experiencing life difficulties.
Stephen Ministers come from all walks of life, but they all share a passion for bringing Christ’s love and care to people during a time of need.

 Training to Become a Stephen Minister

Are you caring and compassionate?  Are you looking for a front row seat to life-changing miracles?  Sign up to be trained as a Stephen Minister! Stephen Minister training is a Christ-centered experience that equips participants with essential caring and relating skills.  Trainees learn how to listen to, care for, and walk with those going through a difficult time in life, such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or relocation.

Most Stephen Ministers say that, in addition to becoming better caregivers, everything they learn in Stephen Minister training has enhanced their relationships with family, friends, coworkers, and others they meet in their everyday life

Becoming a Care Receiver

Are you lonely, sad or discouraged?  Going though a tough time emotionally or spiritually?  Struggling with a crisis in life? Consider letting a Stephen Minister help.  A Stephen Minister is a member of our congregation who is trained to listen, care, encourage, pray, and walk alongside you during a difficult time for as long as needed.  You and your Stephen Minister will meet once a week for about an hour.
