What is a Stephen Minister?
Are your health, your attitude, or your relationships suffering?
Are you adjusting to a new job, a change in marital status, a serious illness,
the death of a loved one, a recent move?
Would you like to have someone in your life who really cares?
Stephen Ministers are church members trained to provide one-to-one care for those experiencing a difficult time in life such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or relocation. Stephen Ministers come from all walks of life, but they all share a passion for bringing Christ’s love and care to people during a time of need.
What Stephen Ministers Do?
After being matched with a person experiencing a life crisis, the Stephen Minister meets with that person on a weekly basis to listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support. The caring relationship lasts as long as the need for care exists.
