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 any 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.
