stephen ministry is here for you…
Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who have gone through 50 hours of training to provide high-quality Christian care to individuals experiencing grief, divorce, loneliness, job loss, hospitalization, and many other life difficulties. Stephen Ministers are assigned a “care receiver” and meet with that person for about an hour a week. Stephen Ministers listen, care, encourage, and pray with their care receiver. They are confidential and understand that God is the Cure-Giver in the relationship.
Our church is one of more than 12,000 Stephen Ministry congregations—from more than 170 denominations –worldwide. Since 1975 more than 600,000 Stephen Ministers have been trained, providing care to more than two million people in need.
