Stephen Ministry Mission Statement
The mission of Stephen Ministry is to help congregations equip God’s people for spiritual growth and Christ centered practical ministry in today’s world.
What is a Stephen Minister?
A Stephen Minister is a lay person who attends 50 plus hours of training that equips them to provide one-to-one confidential care, prayer and support. After training, the Stephen Minister attends continuing education two times a month.
When do you need a Stephen Minister?

- Loss of a loved one through death, or the end of a relationship
- Job loss/unemployment
- Terminal illness
- Caring for a loved one with a terminal illness
- … and many more
