What is Stephen Ministry?

Our congregation's Stephen Ministry equips lay-people to provide one-on-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 remains private.

Stephen Ministers Care for People in Tough Times

We all experience challenges in life - times when we could benefit from the support of another person. Stephen Ministers can provide the emotional and spiritual care we need when faced with a crisis or difficulty such as -
• Loss of a loved one
• Hospitalization
• Divorce or separation
• Spiritual crisis
• Unemployment or a job crisis
• A terminal illness
• Incarceration
• Aging
• Birth, adoption, miscarriage, or infertility
• A chronic illness
• Relocation
• Recovery after an accident or disaster
• Many other life challenges
