View our Stephen MInistry brochure.

Stephen MinistryA lay ministry which provides Christian care to members and others through the development of one-on-one, confidential, and caring relationships.

  • Is life more than you can handle alone right now?
  • Are you experiencing difficulties with your health, attitude or relationships?

Everyone goes through difficult times. Having someone to care, to listen, to share God’s love with you can help you through the uncertainty, stress or loneliness you may be experiencing.

What is a Stephen Minister?

  • A child of God who walks beside a hurting person
  • A caring Christian friend who really listens
  • A lay person (member) who has received 50 hours of training
