WHAT IS STEPHEN MINISTRY?
Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.
WHAT ARE STEPHEN MINISTERS?
Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained by Stephen Leaders to offer high-quality, one-to-one Christian care to people going through tough times. A Stephen Minister usually provides care to one person at a time, meeting with that person once a week for about an hour.
WHAT ARE CARE RECEIVERS?
Care receivers are people—congregation members and others in the community—who receive care from a Stephen Minister. These are people struggling through a difficult time in life—experiencing grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or some other life crisis.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A CARING RELATIONSHIP?
- Your meetings with your Stephen Minister are CONFIDENTIAL
- Men are matched with Men and Women are matched with Women
- If your care exceeds what a Stephen Minister can provide, we will help you find the proper professional care or community resource.
