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.


Do you feel a calling and desire the personal joy that comes from sharing Christ’s love with people? Or, perhaps you need a listening ear that a Stephen Minister can provide. If your answer is yes to either of these, contact Chris Krol at
