Stephen Ministers are laypeople from within the congregation who have been trained to provide one-to-one Christ-centered care to hurting people. Stephen Ministers are people with a compassionate heart who’ve been equipped with the skills to listen, encourage, and offer support when someone is in need.
Members receiving care are facing a variety of life challenges or crises. They are people who may be experiencing one or more of the following challenges: grief, divorce, cancer, financial difficulties, hospitalization, chronic illness, job loss, disabilities, loneliness, a spiritual crisis, or other life struggles. The relationship between those receiving care (Care Receivers) and those giving care (Care Givers) is absolutely confidential. Male care receivers are matched with male care givers and female care receivers are matched with female care givers.
If you are interested in being matching with a Stephen Minister please contact the office.
