WHAT IS STEPHEN MINISTRY?
A ministry in our congregation with trained and supervised lay persons, called Stephen Ministers, providing one-on-one Christian care to individuals facing life challenges or difficulties. Stephen Ministers are caring Christian friends who listen, understand, accept, and pray for and with care receivers who are working through a crisis or tough time.
HOW CAN I RECEIVE CARE FROM A STEPHEN MINISTER?
Dan Deaver is our Stephen Leader who coordinates referrals. If you or someone you know could benefit from the care of a Stephen Minister, you can talk to Dan, to one of our pastors, or to any of our other Stephen Leaders.
HOW CAN I BECOME A STEPHEN MINSTER?
Begin by talking to one of our pastors, Stephen Leaders, or Stephen Ministers. We usually train a new class of Stephen Ministers every year or so. Stephen Ministers make a two-year commitment to train and serve.
