Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are trained leaders who provide one-on-one spiritual and emotional care focusing on their care receivers’ needs. They offer care, support, and encouragement to people whose lives have been turned upside down by crisis or tragedy. They minister through active listening, a caring presence, and prayer. If you are experiencing a personal crisis, you don’t need to walk through it alone because a Stephen Minister is ready to walk beside you.

Become a Stephen Minister

Learn, grow and serve by becoming a Stephen Minister. Stephen Ministers are members of our faith community who provide a one-on-one caring ministry to people experiencing grief, divorce, loneliness, job loss, illness, or any other life difficulties. As a Stephen Minister, you’ll be equipped to provide a very high level of care through our training program. After training you will be matched with someone in need of care and begin to meet with that person once a week to listen, pray, encourage and reflect Christ’s presence in their life. Stephen Ministry becomes both life-changing for the care receiver and the Stephen Minister. If you’re interested in becoming a Stephen Minister, fill out the interest form below and someone will contact you.

Please note applications will only be processed during the months of September & October due to the training schedule.
