Stephen Ministry

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.
  If you are going through a trying time in your life, contact Stephen Ministry leader, Nancy Giffhorn at or talk to the pastor.
