How Does Stephen Ministry Enrich a Congregation?
The entire congregation benefits from the Stephen Ministry from the pastors to each member of our congregation.
What Is A Stephen Minister?
A Stephen Minister is a lay person who has completed 50 hours of intensive training and participates in continuing education and regular supervision to be a care giver with Christ’s love to those in need.
They are here in our congregation to provide spiritual and emotional support to those in need.
The Stephen Ministers do not replace our pastors' care, but increase it.
Each of us will go through a crisis at some time in our lives. Families and friends often step in to assist initially. At times, that is not enough. Stephen Ministers are available also in a caring relationship to pray, listen, visit, and encourage each individual with the love of Christ.
