What is Stephen Ministry?

  • Stephen Ministry is a lay ministry to help people who may be going through a tough time with such trials as job loss, divorce, serious illness, loss of a loved one, or other life crisis.
  • A Stephen Minister meets with an individual once a week (men matched with men; women matched with women) and is someone who will listen, talk, pray, and give Christian care to that person.
  • Stephen Ministers are members of the church who have received fifty hours of training to enable them to better serve their care receivers.
  • Information which is shared with a Stephen Minister is strictly confidential.
  • Stephen Ministers receive peer supervision twice monthly where they will support each other to provide the best ministry possible.
               Our mission in Stephen ministry is sharing Jesus’ love with people who are hurting.
If you are going through a trying time in your life, contact Stephen Ministry leader, Nancy Giffhorn at Rgiffhorn@aol.com or talk to the pastor.
