Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system. Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.

Stephen Ministry is truly “ministry”, that is, service to others, caring for other’s in Jesus’ name, doing the work that God has both called and gifted his children to do.

Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will
fulfill the law of Christ.
Galatians 6:2

Do you feel a calling to care for others who are hurting? Do you desire the personal joy that comes from sharing Christ’s love with people? Or, perhaps you feel like you need a Stephen Minister to listen to you?
