Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained by Stephen leaders to offer confidential high-quality, one-on-one Christian care to people going through a difficult season in their lives. A Stephen Minister provides care to one person at a time, meeting with that person once a week for about an hour.

Watch the video to hear from Canterbury’s Stephen Ministers about the ministry.
