Stephen-Ministers

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are trained to visit with those in need on a regular basis, listen, offer resources and referrals, if needed, pray with and for them, and offer Christian love and support. Stephen Ministers give one-on-one care to people who are having a hard time for a variety of reasons. These can include family problems, divorce, loss of a job, death of a family member or anything which may be creating anxiety. A Stephen Minister is not a counselor, therapist, problem solver, or casual visitor. It is a servant ministry modeled on Stephen, the first deacon. If you are interested in becoming a Stephen Minister, please contact the church office or one of the Stephen Leaders listed below to find out more about the training.
