What is Stephen Ministry?
Stephen Ministers are laypeople—Christian men and women—trained to provide one-to-one care for anyone experiencing a difficult time in life: grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, relocation, or separation due to military deployment.
Stephen Ministers aren't counselors; they're specially trained people from all walks of life with a passion for being great listeners, and bringing Christ’s love and care to people during hard times. A Stephen Minister usually meets with a person once a week for about an hour.
