What is Stephen Ministry?
Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one caring ministry made up of congregation members who provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting. A Stephen Minister usually provides care to one person at a time, meeting with that person once a week for about an hour. To become a Stephen Minister, one must attend numerous training sessions and be certified and commissioned by our church.
Who are the Care Receivers?
Care receivers are people—congregation members and others in the community—who receive care from a Stephen Minister. These are people struggling through a difficult time in life—experiencing grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or some other life crisis.
If you or someone you know is in need of a Stephen Minister, or if you are interested in becoming a Stephen Minister, please email Pastor Silvana.
