Stephen Ministry

Christ Caring for People Through People

One-on-One Support

Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation, trained to provide one-on-one spiritual and emotional care, support, and encouragement to people whose lives have been turned upside down by crisis or tragedy. They minister through active listening, a caring presence, and prayer. If you are experiencing a personal crisis, you don’t need to walk through it alone because a Stephen Minister is ready to walk beside you, men caring for men and women caring for women.

Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry. Those receiving care can be confident that their identity and the issues they discuss will remain private.
If you are dealing with any of the following, you may benefit from the support of a Stephen Minister:

  • Chronic or terminal illness
  • Hospitalization
  • Death of loved one
  • Divorce or separation
  • Job Loss
  • Incarceration
  • An ill family member
  • Loneliness or discouragement
  • Birth, adoption, miscarriage or infertility
  • Aging
  • Spiritual issues
  • Parenting Challenges

Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.  Galatians 6:2
