Stephen Ministry

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

The heart of Stephen Ministry is the pastoral care element where one helps another seek God’s active presence during a time of suffering and promotes hope for the one who longs for wholeness and well-being. 

 

 

Is Life More than you can Handle Right Now?

We all experience challenges in life--times when we could benefit from the support of a caring Christian friend.  Stephen Ministers are ready and willing to help provide the emotional and spiritual care we need when faced with a crisis or difficulty such as—

  • Loss of a loved one 
  • Hospitalization
  • Separation or Divorce
  • Loneliness or discouragement
  • Spiritual crisis
  • Unemployment or a job crisis
  • A terminal illness
  • Aging
  • Birth, adoption, miscarriage, or infertility
  • A chronic illness
  • Relocation
  • Recovery from an accident or disaster
  • And many more…
Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry: the identity of those receiving care and what takes place in each caring relationship remains private.
