What is Stephen Ministry?
Stephen Ministers are compassionate members of our church family who undergo specialized training to provide intentional, one-on-one, Christ-centered care for individuals experiencing hardship. This ministry is inspired by and named after Stephen in Acts 6, who was among those chosen to provide caring ministry to people in need.
Our Stephen Ministers are equipped to walk alongside individuals dealing with situations such as:
• Loss or Grief
• Divorce or Separation
• Job Insecurity
• Illness or Hospitalization
• Family Struggles
• Loneliness or Discouragement
