Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to individuals in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives.

One care receiver shared this about his Stephen Minister’s care:

“My Stephen Minister would show up and be there for me. He was everything I ever thought a loving God would be. I’ll forever be grateful that I had a Stephen Minister.”
