Stephen Ministry

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

Stephen Ministry IllustratorStephen Ministry equips and empowers lay caregivers – called Stephen Ministers – to provide one-to-one, high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.

Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained by Stephen Leaders to provide care by meeting with a person once a week for about an hour. Twice a month, Stephen Ministers gather with their Stephen Leaders for supervision and continuing education.

Care receivers are congregation members and others in the community who receive care from a Stephen Minister for support through a difficult time in life, whether experiencing grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or some other life crisis.
