Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation

Stephen Ministers provide one­-to-one caring ministry to people experiencing grief, divorce, loneliness, job loss, hospitalization, and many other life difficulties. Once trained, you are equipped to do an excellent job as a Stephen Minister, as well as, to improve the quality of all your own relationships.


Areas of training development include:
  • Listening
  • Feeling
  • Confidentiality
  • Providing christian care
  • Maintaining boundaries
  • Crisis theory and practice
  • Ministering to people experiencing grief

Stephen Ministers are prayerfully matched with people who are going through a stressful time or life difficulty. A Stephen Minister meets with this person once a week for about an hour to listen, care, encourage, ind pray. The Stephen Minister brings Christ’s presence into the person’s life and also experiences Christ in the other person. It’s really a life-changing ministry for both the care receiver and the Stephen Minister.
