Stephen Ministry


Stephen Ministers: The After People, Stephen Ministers come into a person's life immediately after a crisis has hit and then provide emotional and spiritual care for as long after as needed.

Everyone goes through difficult times.  Having someone to care, to listen, to share God's lvoe with ou can help you get through confusion, stress, or loneliness you may be experiencing.  

Our congregation's Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to individuals in our congregation and the community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. You do not have to be a member of this congregation to receive care from Stephen Ministry. Stephen Ministers are members who listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support to people who are facing a crisis or going through tough times.

A Stephen Minister is...

  •  A child of God who walks beside a hurting person;
  • A caring Christian who really listens;
  • A member of our congregation who has received 50 hours of training in how to provide distinctively Christian care;
  • A Person who is ready to focus on your needs;
  • A trustworthy confidant who will keep everything you say--and even your identity--confidential;
  • Someone who will faithfully meet with you on a weekly basis for as long as your need persists.
