Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
Do you feel called to care for others who are hurting? Do you desire the personal joy that comes from sharing Christ's love with people? Are you in need of a caring, listening, praying Stephen Minister?
Named for Stephen, one of the first seven laypeople called by the church to assist the apostles in caring for others (Acts 6 and 7), Stephen Ministry is a one-to-one lay caring ministry.
Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained by Stephen Leaders to offer high-quality, one-to-one Christian care to people going through tough times. A Stephen Minister usually provides care to one person at a time, meeting with that person once a week for about an hour. Twice a month, Stephen Ministers gather with their Stephen Leaders for supervision and continuing education.
Over one-and-a-half million people have benefitted from the one-to-one, confidential, Christ-centered care of a Stephen Minister. Below are some of their stories.
