Stephen Ministry


A Stephen Minister will walk beside you through the disequilibrium you are experiencing.

Stephen Ministry is a lay caring ministry in the congregation. In a Stephen Ministry congregation, lay caregivers (called Stephen Ministers) provide one-to-one Christian care to the bereaved, hospitalized, terminally ill, separated, divorced, unemployed, relocated, and others facing a crisis or life challenge. Stephen Ministry helps our pastor and congregation provide quality caring ministry for as long as people need it.

The name Stephen comes from St. Stephen, who was the first lay person commissioned by the apostles to provide caring ministry to those in need (as recorded in Acts 6).
