We are a community that cares about one another. We pray for one another. We support one another. At our best, we visit with one another and listen to one another hearing how God is at work in each others lives and in the life of our community as a whole.
Sometimes you may feel very equipped to do the listening when a community member is experiencing life difficulties. Sometimes you may feel overwhelmed and not sure where to begin though you want to be a healing and listening presence for another.
What is a Stephen Minister?
A person trained to provide one-to-one, Christ-centered care to hurting people.
What is Stephen Ministry?
Stephen Ministry is a proven system for training and organizing people in your congregation to provide quality Christian care to those experiencing life difficulties.
Imagine how much more ministry could happen if our congregation had a team of well-trained lay caregivers equipped to provide one-to-one Christian care to people who need it.
We already care for each other. Let’s continue to grow that part of our community & equip us for more ministry.
