CARE: Stephen Minister

Stephen Minister

You will thrive in this role if you:

  • Look forward to the 52 hours of comprehensive equipping (or are already a certified Stephen Minister).
  • Are compelled to offer care to the hurting.
  • Express care through simply listening reflectively, as a sounding board.
  • Recognize the importance of maintaining confidentiality.
  • Value structure and protocol, in order to uphold the integrity of this ministry, as well as the dignity of your care receiver.
  • Sense a fulfillment in and closeness to Christ through this sort of care.

Stephen Ministry is a free confidential Christian support ministry. We care for people during life’s difficult transitions; such as, the loss of a loved one, job loss, anxiety, illness, marriage issues, and other struggles. Stephen Ministers are not professional counselors or therapists; however, we have each received 52 hours of training, prior to being assigned our first care receiver. While Stephen Ministers profess faith in Christ, we care for those of any religion or no practicing religion at all. We are prepared to meet weekly, privately, and confidentially.

We all go through challenging seasons. Stephen Ministers have the honor and  opportunity to bring encouragement and hope to those who request our help. In this way we are sharing Jesus Christ as an expression of His heart.

Stephen Ministers are caring, encouraging, and good listeners. We offer hope to those who need it most.
