Stephen Ministry is grounded in Jesus’ command to love one another. Through one-to-one caring relationships, those who are hurting receive the love and care they need to support them.

Is life more than you can handle alone right now?

Are your health, your attitude, or your relationships suffering?

Are you adjusting to a new job, change in marital status, a serious illness, the death of a loved one, or a recent move?

Would you like to have someone in your life who really cares?

Everyone goes through difficult times. Having someone to care, to listen, and to share God’s love with you can help you get through the confusion, stress, or loneliness you may be experiencing.

What is a Stephen Minister? 
A child of God who walks beside a person who has received 50 hours of training in how to provide distinctively Christian care.
