Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to individuals in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives.
We all experience challenges in life – times when we could benefit from the support of a caring Christian friend. Stephen Ministers are ready to provide the emotional and spiritual care we need when faced with a crisis or difficulty such as: loss of a loved one, hospitalization, divorce or separation, loneliness or discouragement, spiritual crisis, unemployment, terminal illness, relocation, miscarriage and many more.
Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry - the identity of those receiving care and what takes place in each caring relationship remains private.
Trained Stephen Ministers also meet twice a month for prayer, mutual support and ongoing training in the caring field.
