Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who receive special training to provide one-to-one Christian care to people in our congregation and community experiencing challenges in life: grief, loneliness, divorce, hospitalization, disability, job loss, and many other life difficulties.

Are you or do you have a friend, neighbor, coworker, or relative going through a difficult time, emotionally or spiritually? Struggling with a crisis in life? Or simply feeling down? Consider letting a Stephen Minister help. A Stephen Minister will listen, care, encourage, pray, and walk alongside you during difficult times. It's confidential, free, and very helpful.

Is God nudging you to become a Stephen Minister? Those who become Stephen Ministers grow in faith as they use their training and ministry gifts to see God work through them to touch the lives of others.
