Stephen Ministry


"Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ." (Galatians 6:2)


Stephen Ministers are trained lay people who provide Christian one-to-one care for those experiencing difficult life circumstances. Our Stephen Ministers provide an important ministry in our weekly worship services, availing themselves to those who might want to participate in a time of sharing and/or prayer. Stephen Ministers can be linked, on a confidential basis, to those in the midst of transitions or times of crises, such as divorce, death and grief, the loss or change of employment, or a variety of other personal or spiritual difficulties. Stephen Ministers are not counselors, but they are well-trained listeners who will walk beside you during a difficult time in your life.


If you are going through a difficult time and desire a Stephen Minister, you may contact any pastor or one of the following Stephen Ministry leaders. One of them will link you with a Stephen Minister of your same gender. That Stephen Minister will then contact you to begin determining times to meet together.
