Stephen Ministry


Christ Caring for People
Through People

The name Stephen comes from St. Stephen, the first layperson commissioned by the Apostles to provide caring ministry to those in need. 

At some point in life, every person needs someone to be present to listen and care. Our Stephen Ministers are trained to be compassionate listeners to people experiencing life’s struggles, such as:

          • Separation or Divorce

          • Terminal Illness

          • Bereavement

          • Job Crisis

          • Loneliness or Depression

          • Hospitalization

          • Spiritual Crisis

If you or someone you know could use the care of a Stephen Minister, please fill out this card and drop it in the offering plate or mail to the Church Office with the words “Stephen Leader —Confidential” on the envelope.
