Stephen Ministry


“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. “ (Galatians 6:2)

Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide confidential, one-to-one, same sex, Christian care to individuals in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives.

Stephen Ministry helps pastors and congregations provide quality caring ministry for as long as people need it.

Stephen Ministers are ready to provide emotional and spiritual care to a person facing a crisis or difficulty, such as: loss of a loved one, hospitalization, marital issues, loneliness or discouragement, terminal illness, chronic illness, aging, unemployment or a job crisis, mild depression or anxiety.
