Stephen Ministry is for anyone who needs someone to care, to listen, and to share God’s love during confusing, stressful, or lonely times. Stephen Ministry helps support individuals who are hospitalized, terminally ill, bereaved, in a job crisis, disabled, home bound, lonely, in a spiritual crisis, or looking for a caring, Christian friend.

A Stephen Minister is...

  • A child of God who walks one-on-one beside a hurting person

  • A caring Christian friend there to listen

  • A lay person who has received 50 hours of training in how to provide distinctively Christian care

A Stephen Minister is NOT...

  • A counselor or therapist

  • There to solve problems

  • A casual visitor
