Stephen Ministry is a national,
interdenominational organization. It is a one-on-one confidential meeting of two people,
a care receiver and a trained Stephen Minister caregiver. Stephen Ministers are lay men
and women from the congregation who have developed their gifts for bringing the
concerns and care of Christ's community to people in need. They are trained to be loving
caregivers, supporters, listeners, and encouragers. If you are a good listener and a
compassionate person, consider becoming a Stephen Minister.
