“Christ Caring for People through People”
That‘s the motto of Stephen Ministry. The Stephen Minister’s role is to bring God‘s love into the lives of people who are going through a difficult time or experiencing a crisis.
What Do Stephen Ministers Do?
Stephen Minister comes alongside a hurting person and meets with that person on a weekly basis to listen, care, encourage, pray, and provide emotional and spiritual support. Men are paired with men; women with women.
Through the years, well over one-and-a-half million people have benefited from the one-to-one, confidential, Christ-centered care of a Stephen Minister.
Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained by Stephen Leaders to offer high-quality, one-to-one Christian care to people going through tough times. A Stephen Minister usually provides care to one person at a time, meeting with that person once a week for about an hour. Twice a month, Stephen Ministers gather with their Stephen Leaders for supervision and continuing education.
