Caregiving

At West Hills, we believe every member has a calling and ministry. If we were to look at the church as a football team, Caregiving Ministry would be the medics and trainers on the team. The medics and trainers aren’t the people who normally get attention and notice, but they serve an important purpose:  to get the players up and healthy to play the game. That is what we do in Caregiving Ministry. We join alongside people when they are going through a difficult time. We listen and care, and help them to become strong enough to get back in the game of serving Jesus.

Caregiving Ambassadors maintain a relationship with the families and individuals under their care through phone contacts, cards, e-mails and texts.

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.

Please contact a pastor or one of the following Stephen Ministry Leaders if you have questions on the Stephen Ministry process or are wondering if a Stephen Minister could be beneficial for you or a loved one.
