Stephen's Ministry

“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
(Galatians 6:2)
 
Stephen's Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system. Stephen's Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers — called Stephen Ministers — to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.
 
Stephen's Ministry is
  • A confidential ministry.
  • Men are matched with men, women with women.
  • The responsibility of the Stephen Minister is not to solve the care receiver’s problems, but to be a caring listener as they talk about their feelings concerning some of the things that are of vital importance to them.
  • Placement of a particular Stephen Minister with his or her care receiver is always prayerfully considered.
  • Stephen Ministers meet together once a month for Peer Supervision and ongoing training. 
If you find yourself in difficult circumstances and are considering the care of a Stephen Minister, please contact Pastor Michele or email .
