Stephen Ministry

“Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”– Galatians 6:2

STEPHEN MINISTRY IS A ONE-TO-ONE LAY CARING MINISTRY. SELECT CONGREGANTS HAVE BEEN TRAINED as lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.

Are you experiencing:

  • transition
  • hospitalization
  • infertility
  • grief
  • divorce
  • relocation
  • disabilities
  • loneliness
  • cancer
  • chronic illness
  • job loss
  • financial difficulties

or other life struggles?

We are people with a compassionate heart who’ve been equipped with the skills to listen, encourage, and offer support.

Stephen Ministers have over 50 hours of initial training and participate on continuing education. They are people in the congregation trained to provide one-to-one Christ-centered care to hurting people. A Stephen Minister typically has one care receiver at a time and meets with that person once a week. Stephen Ministers often provide care for people in the broader community—relatives, friends, and coworkers of congregation members; nonmembers whom the congregation serves; as well as military personnel and their families.
