Christ Caring for People through People
The Stephen Ministry motto, "Christ Caring for People through People", captures the core truths about what Stephen Ministry is and does.
What is Stephen Ministry?
Our congregation's Stephen Ministry equips lay-people to provide one-to-one Christian care to people in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives.
Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry. The identity of those receiving care and everything they discuss with a Stephen Minister remain private.
A Stephen Minister is...
A child of God who walks beside someone who is hurting.
A congregation member who is carefully selected to serve in this role because of his or her caregiving gifts
A layperson with 50 hours of training in providing high-quality, distinctively Christian care
A caring Christian friend who listens, cares, prays, supports, and encourages
Someone who meets faithfully each week with his or her care receiver for as long as there's a need
Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
Galatians 6:2
